Learning the Paso Doble

Although Common Threads is focused on nutrition and balanced eating, we also encourage campers to create healthy lifestyle that includes physical activity. Each week of camp, they learn a new style of "movement". Through studying African dance, yoga, and the paso doble, our campers are immersed in a different culture. The food, classroom lessons and recipes all tie into a region of the world. We hope to create an environment that exposes children to new aspects of a foreign culture and encourages acceptance.

These photos are the the paso doble session of movement. Like Spanish bull fighters, the campers stood tall and proud while practicing this traditional routine.
