Family Dance Jam is great way to engage kids in movement at a low-risk level. Parents also get to learn creative and fun approaches to interactive activity with their kids. The best thing is that anybody is welcome! I have fun as a professional dancer, and some of the kids' moves still show me up! If you can't get there for the dancing, then get there for the yummy potluck! This group doesn't hold back when it comes to groove and flavor.

What a great program! Can't think of better family entertainment. As the mother of an 8 year old boy, it is so much fun to get on the dance floor and dance with him. Great bonding time, and a great way to spend an evening with other great families. Thanks very much for keeping your program going and inviting us!
