First WesBAM! Zumba Class Today

From WesBAM!’s Zumba instructor Emily Hunt ’13:

Do you have lots of energy? Do you love to dance? Do you want a good workout? Then come to WesBAM’s first ZUMBA class of the semester!!!

Zumba fuses Latin rhythms (Cumbia, Reggaeton, Merengue, and Salsa, e.g.) and easy-to-follow dance-esque routines to create a dynamic fitness/dance program that will tone and sculpt your body while you get a great cardiovascular workout. It’s extremely fun, and an incredible stress-reliever, and most importantly, it doesn’t feel like exercise! No dance experience necessary! Come join the super fun Brazilian inspired workout that combines cardio-blasting steps with some rad tunes. Burn some intense calories without even realizing it, and enjoy an awesome dance party with your friends!

Best of all, the first class is free!

  • Date: Today
  • Time: 6:30-7:30 pm
  • Place: Fayerweather Dance Room

LiNK Meeting

From Esther Pak ’13:

Are you interested in human rights? Do you know about the humanitarian crisis in North Korea? If you are even remotely curious, we’d love to have you at LiNK’s first meeting of the year!

Liberty in North Korea (LiNK) is the umbrella organization that works hands on to provide humanitarian assistance to North Korean refugees who have escaped the repressive regime by ensuring them the resources to rebuild their lives and secure a brighter future. Wesleyan’s chapter of LiNK serves to raise campus awareness about the people’s crisis in North Korea and contribute funds to efforts on the ground.

We encourage you to bring your friends and come get more information especially if you’re interested in East Asian Studies, International Relations, and organizing events on campus. We need all the help we can get!
