In collaboration with the Children's Fitness Clinic, we developed Go Girls!, a dance-based fitness support group for girls ages 5-21. Our program is meant to:
- Introduce girls to exercise in a fun environment where they can meet other girls and support each other.
- Enable girls to discover and develop an enjoyment of exercise.
- Educate girls and their families about weight-related health issues and reproductive health issues.
- Help girls and their families implement healthy lifestyle changes.
Due to COVID-19 classes are currently only being offered online through Zoom. When in-person, weekly classes resume we plan to offer classes at area locations including Charlottesville, Zion Crossroads, and Orange.
The classes include 45 minutes of Zumba and 15 minutes of wellness discussion led by a wide range of health and wellness professionals. We invite moms, aunts, grandmas, neighbors, and other support persons to join our class and participate with the girls! Our weekly class will be moving to other locations in time. Please check back to see if a class has been added near you; or let us know if you'd like to bring Go Girls! to your community.
