      Date: Nov 29
      Time: 4:15 PM to 5:15 PM
      Calendar: Seniors at the VAC

      Zumba Gold (18+) gentle and beginner friendly is designed to bring people together in the moment, to dance and sweat it on!

      How It Works We take the "work" out of workout by mixing low-impact and low-intensity moves for an interval-style, ??calorie-burning dance fitness FIESTA??. These classes are slow-paced cardio fitness that fuse Latin dance moves???? with fitness variations.

      Once the South American / World rhythms (Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Reggeaton, Bachata, etc) moves take over, you'll see why Zumba classes are often called exercise in disguise.??

      You don't need to be a dancer to feel welcome in this Dance Fitness class.

      Dates:  11/1/22 through 12/20/22
      Tiime:  4:15 PM-5:15 PM
      Where:  VAC Weight/Fitness Room
      Price:  Varies
