April 2019 sees the arrival of two new group exercise classes; Zumba and Zumba Gold; which are open to all people, of all fitness levels within the local community. Zumba is the Columbian originating dance class that involves dance and aerobic movements to energetic music and incorporates moves from Salsa, Merengue, Hip Hop, Soca, Samba and Mambo. Dance Yourself Fit Instructor, Emma Blackmore, who has over 8 years teaching Zumba in the fitness industry says, “Zumba is brilliant. It’s accessible to anyone, is a really great workout because it gets the whole body moving and the heart pumping, in a welcoming environment where everyone encourages each other to have fun whilst dancing their way to fitness.” All local residents are encouraged to give Zumba, or Zumba Gold – which is for active older adults who want a modified Zumba class with all the awesome original moves at a lower intensity – a try to see how great they will feel afterwards. Zumba will take place every Tuesday night between 6.30pm and 7.30pm as from Tuesday 2nd April 2019, and Zumba Gold will take place every Thursday between 12.00pm-1.00pm at The Big Club (working men’s club), Sheraton Road, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 5NU.
