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!
