My At Home Cardio Dance Party

Sometimes going to the gym just isn’t in the cards as a busy mom.  I like to stay active as much as possible, so what better way then to get my daughter involved with me and have fun doing it with a dance party right in my living room!  How could I not love to dance when I have this little goofball to do it with?


I put in a CD and just start dancing.  This is one of my daughter’s favorite activities.  She laughs at my awesome dance moves, which of course makes me laugh.  This is also important.  Smiling and laughing is some of the best medicine.  How often do you laugh repeatedly while working out at the gym?  Having a mini dance party in your living room is like attending a Zoomba class in the comforts of your own home.  Most CDs are 45 minutes to an hour.  Stay active the whole time and switch up the dance moves trying to use your whole body.

Of course we listen to a lot of her CDs like Disney Junior DJ ShuffleSofia the First  and Frozen,  but it is also a fun time to educate your kids on “great” music.  The Forrest Gump Soundtrack is one of my personal favorites.

Do you have your own personal dance party at home?  What are some of your favorite CDs?
