Who will teach the class?

YMCA BORN TO MOVE™ instructors  are a special breed. They have been chosen for their rapport with young people and trainied in the latest fitness techniques to inspire a love of movement in every child. They are compassionate leaders who genuinely respect and understand young people – and know how to coach the best from each one while having a whole heap of fun.

This class is built on the latest scientific research into child development; the program is designed to help progress motor skills appropriate to this stage of development by giving the children fun, rather than formal, exercise routines. Children of this age are primarily visual learners so the instructor puts a lot of emphasis on demonstrating moves they can easily copy. The simple choreography trains body awareness, balance, coordination, and control.  The content is co-created with young people and the music is drawn from their world.

What should my child wear?
Dress your child in comfortable clothes they can easily stretch and move in.  Sneakers are recommended as this class involves jumping, games, relays, etc.
