Physical Activity Workshops
Círculo de Bailoterapia
Developed by Visión and Compromiso, Círculo de Bailoterapia (dance cardio and dance therapy) provides promotores—natural leaders in their communities—with formation and support in order to implement a program based on the welfare of the residents that responds to the needs of health and interest in the community. The goal of the Círculo de Bailoterapia is to increase physical activity levels in Latino communities that lack access to health resources through community instructors trained to educate, strengthen and advocate for community transformation.
OBJECTIVE: Through this workshop, participants will learn about Visión y Compromiso’s Círculo de Bailoterapia and how to become part of the community’s integral well-being through physical activity, nutrition, mental health and emotional wellness, and social interaction. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn how instructors advocate for their communities to promote a dignified and healthy life.
