The hallways of Early Childhood Family Education in Osakis were rockin' and rollin' last Tuesday, April 9.

Wearing comfortable pajamas, kids jumped up and down, twirled, twisted, hula-hooped and found out how low they could go for the limbo. DJ Sabrina spun the tunes while kids — and many parents — moved to the beat.

It was all part of the ECFE Family Fun Dance.

"It was a fun and busy night!" said Jan Campbell, ECFE instructor. "We counted 138 kids that signed in for the dance and meal."

ECFE offers classes to children birth through age 5. Classes typically run from mid-September through the beginning of May. Three class choices are offered: Tuesdays from 9 to 11 a.m., Thursdays from 9 to 11 a.m. or Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Families can join anytime during the year for a one-time fee.
