3 Fun Ways for Kids To Stay Active This Winter!

Brrrr, it’s cold out there! If you’re like us, this weather has you wanting to cozy up by the fire, get out the hot cocoa, and bury yourself under the fuzzy blankets. We’re in full support! But don’t stay in your cuddly winter cocoon for too long, because we’ve got some winter activities in Gaithersburg that are sure to heat up soon! 

We can probably all agree that winter is THE hardest time to stay active. And trying to get your kids to stay active when you can’t even take them on outdoor adventures… let’s just say it’s easy to throw in the towel! That’s why we work hard to provide opportunities for physical activity year-round at District Dance.

So what do we have planned for this winter? The list below will be sure to get your kids OFF the couch, ON their feet, and even INTO the holiday spirit!
