Happy #MayDay Everyone!! Traditionally the 1st of May is ushered in with a dance around the maypole, the crowning of the May queen or a surprise gift basket for your neighbor, but in these times it’s probably good enough to get outside & enjoy the day Nature has brought. Today’s dryland suggestion comes from MySwimPro & is full of fun dance moves and lots of energy!
