It’s a Latin-inspired cardio dance fitness class that incorporates many different dance styles and international music rhythms to provide one amazing high calorie burn workout. No dance skills are required to participate in the class. Our classes are created to apply for all fitness levels, whether you are just starting out in finding a healthier life-style or you are already extremely active.

Zumba targets the glutes, legs, arms and abs, all while burning calories through an interval workout of fast and slow movements.

The class will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. Class fees are $5 for one class (walk-in); $20 once a week; and $30 twice a week. The class is instructed by  Brandy Mangum. Pre-registration is required at the Recreation Department office with a minimum of six enrolled in the session. Call for more information.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is a physical exercise and martial art that has been practiced in China for thousands of years.
The free-flowing relaxation exercise consists of a special arrangement of movements known as the form. The form is many separate movements strung together to produce one continuous sequence lasting for several minutes. Within the form, there are five fundamental principles -- relaxation, Yin/Yang, turn waist, keep body upright and beautiful lady hands.
Combining the forms and principles of Tai Chi will help create overall good health. The word TAI means “great,” while CHI is translated as “vital energy or powerful life force.”

Relax and enjoy good health with the six-week course at the Rec Department building. Classes will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Mondays. The cost is $25 per person. Instructor is Taylor Chestnut.

Call the Rec Department office for more information.
