St. Gregory’s before and after school program participated in a Generation POUND® workshop! This is a youth-oriented program that fuses movement and music to improve physical fitness, focus, communication, teamwork, coordination, athletic skills and more!

For children and adolescents, regular physical activity is associated with both physical and psychosocial benefits. Generation POUND brings these benefits and many more to the development of our youth – tomorrow’s educators, leaders, and noise-makers.

Using Ripstix®, lightly weighted exercise drumsticks, kids will learn alternative ways to explore movement, embrace their creativity and ROCK OUT – ultimately building strength, confidence and self-awareness.

Both kindergarten and school age groups each had the change to participate during generation pound and enjoyed rocking out to some music! They each got a pair of drum sticks and played to the beat of the song, while copying the instructors movements.

Emotions Freeze Dance

After the Pound fitness workshop, Avokatdo fitness implemented an activity which challenged children’s emotions. She set up different emotions across the gym and played different types of music. When the music stopped, the children would find the emotion they felt during the song and explain why they felt that way.
