Dance into Fitness

My students need flash drives, display port adapter, Hdmi adapter and an power adapter.

My Students

There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good. ~Edwin Denby

I teach Physical Education in a high poverty inner city public school in Indiana.

Our school has almost 600 students, K-6, who love Physical Education! I see every student twice a week. We rarely go outside to play, so I want to teach the students how to exercise inside. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they could then go home and teach their families what they have learned? By doing this, the entire family will be exercising together, and everyone would be in shape! Help me help them so we end the trend towards childhood obesity!

My Project

My students just got a MacBook Air and DVD external drive to store their dances through out the year. They search for dances and make up dances and need a place to store them for our dance unit. The students need to have a place to store them for safe keeping with the flash drives. They also need the port display adapter to hook the MacBook to the LCD projector. The students love finding new dances and making up dances for the dance unit.

Your donation to this project will help over 600 students in my school get on the right road to do their part to fight childhood obesity.

With your help, we can get our students on the right track to start their own fitness program. Students will benefit from this program for many years to come. Teaching the students the importance of staying in shape is the key to their future.
