Every Monday, 6-7 p.m. Starting June 1
Zumba Instructor, Connie Anderson, will provide both visual and verbal cues
to lead the class in easy, simple dance and fitness moves. Be prepared to move
your hips and shake your booty! The class will start with a warm-up, progress
to intervals of faster and slower tempos, and end with a cool down and stretch.
You don't have to be coordinated and know how to dance to try Zumba!
It uses a lot of repetition. Just be patient and don't get frustrated!
After a few classes you will begin to recognize the basic steps. Even if you
can't do a step, just move to however the music makes you feel.
There is no wrong or right way to Zumba!
Class is FREE for library patrons. Space is limited to the first 25 walk-in
participants. Wear comfortable clothing and sneakers.
*Due to the fast pace of Zumba steps, children are not allowed to participate.
