Love great music? Like to groove?
THIS IS NOT YOUR GRANNY’S DANCE CLASS! We offer all the great music of a traditional Zumba class with a twist - it's low impact and uses a chair (sometimes we sit in it and work, and sometimes use it for balance). Come join us as we break the mold and a sweat as we focus on flexibility, fitness and fun. You'll work up a sweat and a smile while having a blast! SIT DOWN, BUT DON'T RELAX... We'll be dancing our cares away!
Zumba Gold® takes the Zumba experience and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Join us for a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun.
Zumba Gold® was designed by Josie Gardiner and Joy Prouty. Josie, a cancer survivor, has harnessed her experience to help develop customized programs for breast cancer survivors. Her ultimate goal is to create complete programs for all types of cancer and rehabilitation purposes.
