Sports, theater, dance… activities despite confinement (ASTRAPI / BAYARD PRESSE)

On Wednesday afternoon, in normal times, many children are at the gym, dancing, theater, handball … On our answering machine, they tell us how they continue – or not – their extra-curricular activities during containment. And cIt’s sometimes complicated, as 10-year-old Augustin says: his basketball club has had to take a break for now. For others, the teachers have succeeded in sadapt. Yaëlle, 9, explains to us that she continues circus lessons, distance makeup and acrobatics lessons on the program! “We even made our juggling balls”, tell on our answering machine the circus apprentice. For her part, Helena, 10, was able to learn a new choreography from a distance with her dance teacher through videos and even make a video conference call. ” VSwas great, that mit was good to see people I love “, she says.

In her building, 10-year-old Simone launched an activity … the girl created a choir with her neighbors. Each evening after the applause for the caregivers, they sing together a repertoire posted in advance in the building.
