The Dream Center

The most rewarding thing I did this summer (so far) was volunteer to teach at the Central Florida Dream Center. This is an amazing place located in the heart of inner-city Sanford, just north of Orlando. It offers inner-city kids a place to break the cycle of crime, drugs, gangs, and more. 

I love the goal of the Dream Center: to equip and empower kids and families to self-sufficiency so they can become contributing members of our society.

So once a week this summer I went to the Dream Center to get their kids, ages 4 -17, to do the same thing I try to get everyone to do:  Move more!

We did it via dance, kickboxing, bootcamp, and yoga. The kids enjoyed everything so much and just couldn't get enough!  They lit up when I came in weekly and couldn't wait to kick, shake, punch, and do downward dog!  

The Dream Center invited me back to continue the program during the school year. I'm also looking forward to doing a "Dance for the Dream Center" in the future to help raise some $$ for a fitness program there…Stay tuned for details!
