Dance, Have Fun, and Burn Energy During Quarantine
Physical activity is an essential aspect of daily life. Today, we want to encourage you to dance, have fun, and burn energy during quarantine.
Children are used to being in constant movement throughout the day, playing, running, and jumping up and down… However, the current situation of confinement that families are facing poses a serious threat to their usual activity level.
During this time period, it’s important for both children and adults to find ways to stay active even without leaving home. That’s why we want to suggest a series of exercises and dances so you can have fun and burn energy during quarantine.

Maintaining proper health is also an important issue to consider at these times. Even though parents can’t head to the gym and little ones can’t participate in their usual extracurricular activities, we need to find some way to practice sports every day… or at least on a regular basis.
With that in mind, the video platform YouTube is the perfect place to go to find exercise videos we can do at home. That’s why we want to offer you a selection of the best exercises and dances that you and your loved ones can enjoy together.
So, get ready to have fun and burn energy during quarantine!
This YouTube channel takes advantage of one of the most popular and fun dance games for videogame consoles. The game uses upbeat music and includes dance exercises for little ones.
For example, one of our favorite videos from this channel gives kids the option of dancing with Elsa to one of the hit songs from Disney’s 2019 movie Frozen 2. Is there anything better than little kids dancing along with one of their favorite Disney princesses?
Zumba is another athletic activity that’s very popular right now. Since it’s an activity that mainly involves dance, and given its huge success, there are also plenty of Zumba videos for kids available online.
The intensity of these classes is low, as they’re directed towards a younger public. Nevertheless, they’re just as effective. Therefore, they’re an excellent way to help little ones get moving and burn energy during quarantine.
All you need to do is go to YouTube and then search for “Zumba Kids.” There you’ll find a wide variety of videos that you and your children can enjoy working out with together.
