The importance of regular moderately intense exercise for overall wellness has been well documented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Reductions in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis, and increased brain function can be achieved by being active throughout life. Quality physical education, as part of a K-12 comprehensive curriculum, can achieve important objectives and outcomes in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains. Dance is an activity that can contribute toward meeting these learning goals. This article highlights a more traditional aerobic dance activity, Zumba, as well as two ideas for making traditional dance more contemporary for today's youth.
