Zumba at Recess - Motivational Mondays
We had three Zumba instructors come out to Basswood for recess to motivate students to move. Over 1,000 students participated throughout their recess time by dancing and doing Zumba to the lead of our instructors.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We have a plan to have the Zumba instructors come to our school during the fall and spring. We are using Fuel Up to Play 60 Funds to pay for this.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are very excited to move and get exercise as they do Zumba. It motivates students to be more active during their recess period.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The only obstacle is Minnesota weather. We are not able to have Zumba instructors when it gets too cold or if it rains.
