Wiggle Workout

Dana Cohenour

Tell us about your music: I have been blessed to work with children for over 20 years, writing, recording and performing my music for families across America. My goal is to introduce children to numerous musical genres while engaging their minds, bodies and imaginations. My songs are highly interactive and action oriented, inviting kids to participate and literally jump into the music. My previous albums have won 17 national awards and have included everything from classic jazz, country and zydeco, to rock & roll fairy tales. My newest release is all about getting kids away from their screens and up and moving!

About your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.): With so many children spending more time watching their screens than running and playing outside these days, I wanted to write a fun song that would inspire kids to be “as healthy as can be” and learn the importance of staying active and strong. Drawing from my own workout routines, the movements are simple, yet kid friendly and fun to do. Using a driving rock & roll beat as motivation, the song is not only a great workout for kids, but their grown-ups, too!

What you hope children & families will get from this song: A rockin’, sweaty, good time! (And a healthy body along the way!)
