Kam-O-Kidz has been affectionately nicknamed ‘STOMP’ for kids.

THE PERFORMANCE

Kam-O-Kidz is a fun filled, student friendly aerobic- fitness/percussion program that incorporates dance, movement, music, percussion, chanting and participation. The show uses twelve specifically written pieces of music that showcase all styles and rhythmic beats in a fast, fun and engaging way.

Students are so involved in the show they do not realise it is exercise and fitness! They get to sing, dance, jump, chant and clap and do just about every other gross motor movement humanly possible!

The show finishes with a relaxation session where students lie on their backs and listen to a song that has a human heartbeat as its rhythm while Andy talks them through an amazing visualisation.
