Please bring a water bottle and wear leather or suede soled shoes to class. The instructors, Steve Parker and Ellen Russow have been Line dancing for over 20 years and teaching for nearly 10 years.

Zumba®


Zumba®
Have fun, burn calories, and tone your muscles. You get cardio exercise, muscle training, and total body conditioning, while having fun dancing. Easy to follow choreography and great music make you forget you are exercising. We dance with Latin rhythms such as Salsa and Merengue, as well as oldies from the 60's, 70's and 80's, and current hit songs. Exercise tools (provided) such as toning sticks, gliders, and drumsticks add extra fun. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes with good support. Bring a water bottle and towel. You'll feel you've never sweated so much.
