Just Keep DancingJust Keep Dancing
Are you feeling like you’re in a bit of a slump—the Coronavirus Slump? A lot of us are. Maybe you’re experiencing a dip in that optimistic, we’ll-get-through-this-together attitude, which would be both understandable and forgivable. Or perhaps it’s a physical slump from sitting on the couch or at your desk too long. Well, we have some helpful ideas to improve the entire family’s mood. We’re calling it “Just Keep Dancing.” What raises our spirits more or gives us a burst of energy like music and dance? There are so many ways you can go with these ideas, without adding much to your to-do list. And each one will help your kids move their bodies, use their creativity, and improve their mood.
