Welcome to fitness and dance! My name is Raul Ortiz and I have the pleasure to teach this class as an alternative to physical education. As a Physical Education teacher my hope is to instill a love for health and wellness within my students so that they live a healthier lifestyle. This class will provide students with the opportunity to merge dance and fitness routines to develop a higher appreciation for physical activity and dance. As a member of the Peekskill community, I have a deep committment in ensuring that Peekskill students gain the tools necesary to make choices that will lead them to success both in school and in life. I look forward to a wonderful school year:)
