For anyone who hates to exercise, Zumba will feel more like a Salsa party than a workout. Zumba has a fast, energetic workout that is fun and addictive. You get lost in the music and dance and don’t realize you’re getting such a great workout! This is a great remedy for anyone looking for a fat-burning pick-me-up with a positive energy blast that will leave you feeling happy and energized.
Zumba is not difficult and anyone can, and should, experience it. 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.
Classes at the Bethune Recreation Building will be held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 6 to 7 p.m. Licensed Zumba instructor Annie Gonzalez will lead the class. Classes are $25 for 5 classes and one class for free.
Registration is required at the Recreation Department office. Call 425-6009 for more information.

Line dance classes
The chance to learn the Electric Slide and other popular steps is here.
Line dance is a great stress reducer and emotional release as well as good exercise, providing much the same benefits as low-impact aerobics. Increase energy, improve strength and muscle tone. Age is no factor. And you can build your stamina while having fun. Come with a friend or spouse or come alone; you don’t need a partner for line dance.
Want to get in shape without all the running, jumping and bouncing? Try Tonetics -- a deep-muscle exercise class involving walking, stretching, bar usage and more.
The purpose is to tone and lose inches, while working all major muscle groups to achieve an all-over muscle fitness.
Call the Rec Department office for more information.
