Dancing, baby

Zumbini class in Columbia gets kids and parents moving

 

When the “catchy” music came on the television, Katie Dunn of Columbia, said that both she and her 2-year-old daughter started to move.

 

“We always jump up,” Katie said. “It’s that kind of music that makes you want to get up and dance.”

 

They heard the music on BabyFirst TV during commercial breaks for a program called “Zumbini.”

 

Dunn was thrilled to hear that Zumbini was coming near their home in Columbia in the form of a class for children.

 

The Swellness Center, an indoor play and educational center for infants and children, just became the first location in Howard County to offer the class series in March, created as a partnership between the fitness program Zumba and BabyCenter, which runs BabyFirst TV.
