Providence Heights Alpha School had a master class this spring in the new group fitness activity called Bokwa.

Many of the movements are based around the concept of making letters and numbers with one's feet. The instructor uses sign language to cue the class as to what move will be performed next in the sequence.

Alpha students previously learned Bokwa movements in class and invited others in the community to join them for the master class.
