Kiddie City Childcare Community on 280 East 206th Street has been named a "Health Champion" by the Cuyahoga County Board of Health through the Early Ages Healthy Stages program. The five-star Step Up to Quality childcare facility will host a Fitness and Physical Activity Fair on Friday, February 15th from 5:30 to 7:00PM in the school's gymnasium.
Local businesses representing fitness, dance, yoga, pilates, baton, golf, tai chi, martial arts have been invited to set up small booths to distribute brochures on class information and pricing for their services at this fair. "It is our hope that individuals and families from the Euclid community will be inspired to join in the physical fitness movement by joining classes geared toward their interests and needs. This will be the "one stop shop" to gather infrormation on programs and training available in Cuyahoga and Lake Counties, especially with a focus on children and the family", states Jennifer Morrison-Garza, author of the "Health Champions" Grant.
"We are kicking off our "Health Champions" project with a performance by Tom Evert and Meghan Haas of "DancEvert" at 6:00 PM", states Morrison-Garza, organizer. This is a free community event and open to the general public". Tom Evert, a Euclid resident and current Board Member at Kiddie City, is a former lead dancer of the renowned Paul Taylor Dance Company of New York City. He and his wife Susana Weingarten Evert are the co-founders of the internationally acclaimed company DANCEVERT. Mr. Evert has turned his company to an educational focus in our schools and takes great pride in his role as a "teaching artist". He has created a unique instructional approach, which integrates the art of dance with the Core Curriculum. This exciting teaching style can accelerate the learning process, while captivating his students. Learning becomes hands-on, experiential, and fun! "We hope that families and residents of all ages will join us for an evening of education and great entertainment!" states Dayna Lube White, Interim Director of Kiddie City.
