‘TOT BEE BOP’ was a great way for the little ones to get active. It was hosted by dance teacher Tracy Kaye Holly for ages two to three.

“Kids usually listen to the music their parents listen to, so what I do as a ballroom and latin dance teacher I introduce them to all types of apparatuses and I use shakers, scarves and feathers and we dance around and jump around and basically just have a lot of fun,” said Holly.

READ MORE: Vernon Unplug and Play week is April 30 to May 6

Holly will be teaching a ‘Move and Groove’ dance class for the final days of Unplug and Play for children ages four to seven at the TKH Dance Club.

The wrap up event of Interior Savings Unplug and Play Week is at Polson Park on Sunday.
