|Benavides Elementary Zumbathon|
Posted Date: 02/22/2017
At Benavides we value involving the community, parents, teachers and students in all we do. On December 21, 2016 one of our community members and parent, Mrs. Alanis, who is also a Zumba instructor, came to lead our students and staff in a Zumbathon. Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training — alternating fast and slow rhythms — and resistance training. Since the students were released early we took advantage of promoting staying fit and active during the holidays with 30 minutes of Zumba. The students at Benavides know that exercising can be done in many ways not just routine exercises. It is important to show students that exercising is fun so that they can make it a lifelong habit. Abigail Estrada, a 5th grade students says “I can’t wait till she comes again so we can Zumba till we drop.”
