Bring a Friend to Zumba, Save $$

From Emily Hunt ’13:

Feeling a little stir-crazy from lounging around inside for the past two days? Feeling the urge to get your mind off of work and to just have a dance party?

Then come on down TONIGHT to Fayerweather 108 at 6:30 for Zumba, as a part of WesBAM!!

Zumba combines Latin and International music with a fun and effective workout system.
Additionally, this week to promote the class a little more, it’s…BRING-A-FRIEND WEEK!!!!!!  If you bring a friend to class today or tomorrow, it’s $3 for each of you (instead of the normal $5 drop-in rate!!!). So spread the word, share the love, join the party!
All levels welcome!

Date: Today
Time: 6:30-7:30 pm
Place: Fayerweather 108
Cost: $3 if you bring a friend, $5 if you don’t.

TGIF Yoga Dance Party

Remember TGIF on the WB? This is like that but with yoga. From Shira Engel ’14:

It’s a yoga dance party, speakers blasting Top 40s, and perhaps live music at the end. There will be food and coconut water/kombucha on tap. This late-night festival is  an opportunity for the Wesleyan community to engage with what WesBAM! has to offer in a free, completely informal, fun, and dancing context. Photo courtesy of this awesome NY Times article on yoga dance parties (it’s a thing, people!).

Date: Today
Time: 10 pm
Place: Exley Lobby
Cost: FREE
FB event. 

Introducing WesBAM! (Fitness Instructors Needed)

Yogi extraordinaire Shira Engel ’14 writes in to announce that Wexercise is back this fall as WesBAM! (Wesleyan Body and Mind!). The new group aims to be more accessible, include more students, and cut the prices of classes in half:
WesBAM! is a student-run organization that makes mind-body awareness and fitness accessible at Wesleyan through offering classes in a wide variety of practices – yoga, kickboxing, spin, Zumba, and more. We believe these practices should be accessible to everyBODY and are committed to helping students incorporate them into the college lifestyle. While strengthening our bodies as we nurture our minds, we aim to create a community of fun and respect for both our bodies and each other.
If you’re interested in becoming a fitness instructor for WesBAM!, and totally dig its mission statement, then apply here. The application deadline is on August 13. For more up to date information, check out the WesBAM! website.

FREE Zumba Fitness® Class — 4 p.m. today!


REAL QUICK, cool cat Hannah Monk ’12 writes in:

Zumba Fitness® is a Latin-inspired dance fitness program that includes 27 national and international rhythms. The music includes everything from Reggaeton to Salsa to the Top 20 hits you secretly dance to in your car.

Now is the time to stop hiding your dancing. The creator of Zumba®, Beto Perez, once said, “I don’t want people to feel the burn, I want people the feel the music”. Zumba® is a workout disguised as a dance party. It’s about having a good time while simultaneously burning calories (anywhere between 500-900 an hour!) and strengthening muscles.

My class accommodates all fitness levels and all dancing abilities. This is YOUR workout (or party if you choose to call it that).  *This is a weekly Wexercise class*

(There will be a lot of people, so you might want to come a few minutes early to fill out forms).

You’ve got nothing to lose, so come shake it with us!

For questions or more information, write Hannah at hmonk(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.  She’s awesome.

Time: 4 – 5 in the p.m.
Place: Fayerweather Theater Room (next to Usdan, the Beckham Hall building)
