The other night at dance class, I discovered that my teacher formerly taught line dancing at an inner city high school - in the evening for parents. She gave up on it because people brought toddlers and babies, both distracting and physically in the way. But, it gave me an idea! What if I could go to the high school and teach some line dancing to the students immediately after school or even during school for what might be a Study Hall hour for some students?
Obesity is a national epidemic - and it's even worse among those of lower socioeconomic means who attend schools without regular Physical Education, eat a higher fat, lower protein diet, and have few options for safe neighborhood activities.
I'm not slim - but I am among the slimmest at the line dance classes I attend with mostly African American participants. I see that (mostly) women line dancers of all ages suffer from moderate to morbid obesity. They might benefit from learning a fun activity like line dancing - and I could throw in my 'walking in place' ideas too.
What do you think?
I have the name of a contact person at the high school. I have a flexible work schedule. I have an Ipod Dock with speakers. I'm willing and able. And, I'm getting excited! Maybe I can be part of the solution to a national problem. A tiny part - but it's the first step that is the hardest, right?
I'm going to be making a few phone calls over the next few days to see if they'll have me.
