Kohl's, St. John's Partner for Kids Dance Program
Sometimes, you just have to dance. That's something health officials, Kohl's Cares for Kids, and dance instructors know all too well.
Last year, St. John's Children's Hospital, Kohl's Cares for Kids, and local dance studios partnered for the Kohl's Gotta Dance program to help address childhood health and wellness in our community.
Not only is dance a great way to increase one's health, but it also helps to cultivate emotional expression, interaction, and support in children.
"It added such an outlet for our children to be able to go learn dance and self esteem, self-confidence, dance and do things that a lot of people are not able to do, which in turn provides them with some qualities later on in adulthood, and become wonderful adults," Turnout Movements Art Studio owner Tracey Sims said.
The community dance program received funding help today as Kohl's Cares presented a check for around $75,000 to St. John's Children's Hospital. Kohl's Gotta Dance is free for students in grades 5 through 8. Click here for more information.
