Girls Scouts at the YWCA

25 Aug

Girls Scouts, YWCA 09This summer, 14 girls from YWCA Summer Camp participated in a special Girl Scout program that focused on dance and self-esteem. Over seven sessions, the girls learned a variety of dance moves including hip hop, African, salsa, belly dance and Bollywood.  Jaime Walker and YWCA Preventive Health Coordinator Rachel Blattner came as guest dance instructors. The girls also learned from the Girl Scout “Be You 2” dance video with Cheetah Girls star Sabrina Bryan. Brownie-age girls earned the “Dancercize Try It” and Junior-age girls earned the “Dance” badge.  They also made crafts, a “Me” mosaic and learned the Girl Scout Promise.  Here are some of the girls pictured with our own Rachel Blattner.  The troop was coordinated by YWCA New Choices director, Jenny Sliker.
