Summer Olympics!!

Summer is going well in Northern Virginia! Its so great to be able to beat the heat inside, but still have fun activities to get our students moving.

One of my favorite summer themes is the Olympic theme we work on in July. Even though it's not Summer Olympic season, its always fun to remind the dancers of the special events and incorporate them in our dance classes. The students really enjoy the torch run and runners stretch but the crowd favorite seems to be the "broad jump" when we have a friendly competition to see who has the longest jumps. I am always so impressed at the athleticism this dancers have! We might even have some of these dancers premiering in the 2028 Olympics!

Happy Summer,
Jennifer Delfin, Northern Virginia
