Zumba is an aerobic dance fitness program that features movements inspired by various styles of Latin American dance, performed primarily to Latin American dance music. The choreography incorporates hip hop, soca, salsa, belly dance and various aerobic techniques such as squats and lunges, just to name a few! Though it may sound intimidating, no rhythm or previous dance background is required. The Zumba motto is “ditch the workout, join the party!” You only need to bring a willing spirit, teachable attitude, and of course water and comfortable shoes.
3-4pm Chair Exercises
Join Health Coach Joyce Miller, as she leads this class focused on various chair exercises. This class is geared towards helping people in the beginning stages of their fitness journey and will show how to work out while sitting down.
