If cold weather has forced your workouts indoors, Zumba may be a good way to beat the winter blues.
Inspired by Latin-dance moves, a Zumba class will get your heart pumping while it works almost every muscle in your body.
“It may be the best party around,” says Maria Corona, Cain Center’s new Zumba instructor.
In a typical class, Latin rhythms such as the salsa, cumbia, raggaeton and meringue, set the tempo while you follow east-to-do dance steps.
One popular misconception about Zumba is that you need to be an experienced dancer to participate.
In fact, the moves can be modified to fit your own ability, and there are also classes tailored for active older adults and children (4-15) – coming soon!
If you do sign up for a class, remember to wear supportive athletic shoes to cushion your joints and protect knees and ankles.
The fee is $50 for eight lessons and $45 for passholders.
Classes are scheduled for Mondays and Wednesday evenings from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. Classes will begin Monday, Feb. 21.
You must be pre-registered, so come on in to the Cain Center, or register over the phone with Master Card or Visa. On-line registration is not yet available, but coming soon.
