Did I tell you about the time I went for a boogie with Peter Andre? Well, actually, Moozles, Dubz and I went to an event to promote Fit to Dance and Peter Andre was there as their ambassador. But still, we boogied in the same room. Surely that counts. Anyway, Fit to Dance is a new programme brought out by the lovely people at Disney On Ice. They are encouraging children to create stories through dance. This in turn encourages children to be more active as well as to use their imaginations.
When we arrived at the event, Moozles was so nervous. She was worried that she wouldn’t do a good job of dancing. But the lovely dancers from Disney on Ice stressed that we were dancing for fun, and that anyone could take part. The children came up with ideas for their story, chose their characters and their movement, and were even able to put together their own costumes. Dubz was feeling shy, so he just sat next to me eating apples. But Moozles had a brilliant time. Not only did she enjoy the dancing, but she loved the creative aspect of helping to create the story.
Although Fit to Dance is aimed at four to eight year old, anyone can join in. In fact, Disney on Ice would love for the whole family to get involved. Once you have come up with your story and dance, record it and upload the video to the Disney on Ice Facebook page. They will then choose one winner to become the Ultimate Fit to Dance Champion (and there will of course be prizes).
We were invited to this event for the purpose of this post. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
