Fit Kids First - Drumming and Movement for Fitness and More!

The group, called "Roots of Life" combines movement with drumming and other African-related culture for kids K through 12th grade in the State College Area School District.
In this week's "Fit Kids First" segment, we turn to a recent cultural celebration that united movement with music.

To celebrate Black History Month an original performance of "I Tise" was presented last week in State College.

The group, called "Roots of Life" combines movement with drumming and other African-related culture for kids K through 12th grade in the State College Area School District.

As Co-Director and PSU Professor Kikora Franklin says, "With Roots of Life, we consider fitness a holistic approach, mind , body , spirit so through the movement through the African dance, they're physcially engaged but we also encourage students to use their education to learn about the history together to create fitness on a holistic level."
