The LTIS (Las Terrenas International School) philosophy incorporates the whole body and holistic health into the education process and we are always looking for opportunities to expose our students to different methods of exercise. Of course we jumped at the opportunity to have certified Zumba instructor Stephanie Drullard come to our school and teach Zumba to the Kindergarten, First and Second Graders each Friday.
Zumba is a dance and aerobic fitness program that incorporates hip-hop, samba, salsa, merengue, martial arts and other muscle building actions such as squats and lunges. Although the Zumba craze originated in Columbia it is popular in countries across the globe with over 14 million people taking Zumba classes per week worldwide.
The students have a lot of fun, and let off steam after a week of hard work!
