Students Grades 3-5:
Do you want to MOVE, ROCK, PLAY & MAKE NOISE? Then POUND Class is for YOU!!
Instead of listening to music, you become the music in this exhilarating full-body workout that combines cardio, conditioning, and strength training. Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising, POUND transforms drumming into an incredibly effective way of working out. Numerous studies have proven the powerful brain-boosting, stress-relieving effects of drumming. The rhythm of drumming permeates the entire brain to improve focus, increase higher-level thinking and decision-making skills, boost the immune system, and decrease anxiety and fatigue. Participants will improve rhythm, timing, coordination, speed, agility, endurance, and musicality.
Each POUND session will be followed by a self-esteem and affirmations session. This session is open to children in grades three through five. Children should be dressed comfortably and in shoes for exercising (closed-toe only).
