What is your business to share?
Zumbini by Cara Turner. 

 

What do you do, what services do you offer, who do you offer it to? 
Created by Zumba® for kids ages 0-4 and their caregivers, the Zumbini® program combines music, dance and educational tools for 45 minutes of can’t-stop, won’t-stop bonding, learning, and fun! 

Where do you offer this?
I’m currently teaching in Logan Square at Studio 101 Dance and Fitness (3627 W Armitage) on  Saturdays at 10a. I am also available to do demos for businesses, groups, parties, festivals, etc. 

What do you love about what you do, why do you do it? 
I discovered Zumbini after becoming a new mom in November 2016. My daughter, Wren, was totally captivated by Zumbini TV from birth! When I couldn’t find any classes in our area, I thought it would be really special to bond with Wren by learning to teach Zumbini together. We practice everyday and she comes to my classes with her dad. We all love it!

What is something that most interests you about this topic and need?
Through session based classes (typically around 6 weeks), I see the children develop gross motor skills (moving to the music), strengthen fine motor skills (learning to play instruments), and develop social skills (learning to share and play together). It has been fun and rewarding to share these experiences with families.
What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned this year, company or otherwise?
Even as newborns, your child will have their own personality and interests. An exciting part of the parenting adventure is engaging in a variety of activities with your child, some of which may even be new to you. 

What’s your connection to Green Diaper Babies  and why do you use cloth?
Cloth diapering was something we were curious about during pregnancy. We attended a cloth diapering class with Shannon of Green Diaper Babies to learn more and really liked the ease and convenience of a service as well as the all-in-one diapers. In addition to being environmentally conscious, we learned cloth diapering leads to earlier potty training and were sold.
