“It's really about having fun, getting exercise, and learning county music,” LI BootKickers CEO Matt Cotty said after leading a class of Countrywood students in their introductory lesson. “It’s a lot more exercise than people think.” 

“This is especially good for cardio,” said Leslie Bartik a LI Bootkickers teacher. “They’re working muscles they probably are not used to working.”

“We had a dance unit last week, and thanks to a donation from last year’s Art & Sole Run, we thought the LI BootKickers would compliment our program nicely,” said Countrywood PE teacher Janice Reichert.  “This country western dancing really does get your heart going.”  Fellow Countrywood PE teacher Tracey Carron agrees. “Kids love to move to the music and it’s definitely something you can do at home and everyone in the family can enjoy.”

Thank You LI BootKickers and Thank You “Miles for Michael/Art & Sole Run for your generous donation.
