We are so thrilled to announce that we are in the process of in-depth courses on the best practices to protect the mental, emotional and physical health of our students, all teachers and staff members at Kick It Out Dance Studio will be YPAD (Youth Protection Advocates in Dance) Certified. As part of our certification, everyone will be CPR Trained and complete a background check.

YPAD was founded by Leslie Scott, a professional dancer, choreographer and educator, in 2012. In 2019, Leslie approached Misty Lown of More Than Just Great Dancing to take on the leadership of YPAD in order to give it the structural support it needed to take its important message to the larger dance community. Leslie remains an advisor to the curriculum and supports the YPAD mission.

KIO Welcomes Danielle Germaine Zumba instructor

Danielle is joining us to teach Zumba on Tuesday nights 6:15 PM to 7:00 PM. She also will be doing another special class on Saturdays and that news is coming soon!!

After years of being a student, I felt empowered to become a certified Zumba Instructor and did so in March 2023. I feel working out needs to be enjoyable to be effective which makes Zumba so ideal, every class feels like a party! As a therapist by day, I also feel working out needs to be about embracing your body

and self, enjoying the movements and letting go of stress and expectations. These are all aspects and more I hope to incorporate into my class to have you

leaving with a sense of accomplishment along with some sweat and a smile if nothing else.
