Starting February 3rd, there will be more options at the JCC for kids to get active.
There will be five new classes, one each day of the week after school hours, for kids ages five to 10. All the classes are free for JCC Members and will be heald in the Aerobic Studio.

The classes include yoga, general fitness and introduction to sports class.
