There’s just something about fun, peppy music and choreographed “dance” moves that can make just about anyone have so much fun, they forget they’re exercising.

That’s the reason Jazzercise, a fitness program featuring choreographed routines set to popular music, is such a hit. It’s been offered to adults for years and has been a hit in its summer camp programs. Now, the program is expanding, offering a weekly kids’ workout program called Jr. Jazzercise.

We talked to founder Jenn Bradsher to find out more about the 12-week program, which kicks off Aug. 16, 2016, and continues through November 1.

Here’s what she had to say about Jr. Jazzercise Fernandina Beach:

Mamamelia: What does Jr. Jazzercise include?

Bradsher: Choreographed dance to their favorite music, games and activities.

 

Mamamelia: What kind of results and benefits will kids get from participating?

Bradsher: We’ll get the heart pumping and teach the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

 

Mamamelia: Why would you say it is so critical to teach kids the value (and fun) of fitness?

Bradsher: Children are more sedentary than ever! Childhood obesity and diabetes are on the rise. Learning that taking care of our bodies is so important. If children learn to make healthy choices now, it will stick with them through their whole life. And at Jr. Jazzercise we make it fun!!

 

Mamamelia: What have kids’ reactions been to past Jazzercise programs you’ve offered?

Bradsher: Kids LOVE the program! At camp last week kids said it was the “best camp ever!” We play high-energy games and dance to their favorite music, too! They have a blast the whole time. The kids from camp can’t wait for the classes to begin.
