The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly invites the community to a free 75-minute Zumba-fest, with exotic rhythms, high energy Latin and international beats, and easy-to-follow moves, on Saturday, January 23, at 7:30 p.m. Participants must be 12 and older. A team of skilled and inspirational JCC Zumba instructors, including Louis Scriven, Evangelina Bishop, Hila Rivah, and Jessica Walsh, will lead the party.

Zumba is one of more than 90 complimentary drop-in group exercise classes that are offered weekly to JCC members. Group fitness allows people to achieve their fitness goals with great company at all times of the day to suit different lifestyles. Programs are geared for people of all ages and all fitness and skill levels.

“In an effort to encourage people to engage in more healthful activities, we always look to feature a wide variety of fitness options,” the director of Health and Wellness, Roberto Santiago, said. “Zumba is one great option, because it not only provides great music and dance routines that are fun to learn, it is proven to help maintain cognitive skills. It’s also a great cardio workout, incorporating a series of higher and lower aerobic intervals throughout the session. Our goal is to help people find appealing workouts so they stay motivated. And that is why we offer free, open-to-the-community events several times of the year, like our Zumba Fitness Party.”

The JCC has more than 65,000 feet of dedicated wellness space, offering year-round health and wellness programs geared for the entire family, featuring all the latest in cardio, strength, and exercise equipment, including a state-of-the-art dedicated Pilates apparatus training studio, cycling bikes with advanced Bluetooth technology, the Benjamin Bergen Youth Fitness Center (offering age-appropriate fitness equipment, training, and drop-in exercise classes for 6- to 13-year-olds), and a luxurious spa center offering massages, facials, waxing, and more. This comprehensive, ultra-modern recreation facility is a place where members can enjoy individualized instruction and all the latest equipment, and a motivational staff can assist people in achieving their fitness goals. There are also private family changing rooms and complimentary babysitting is available to members while they work out.

As a special incentive to experience firsthand what the JCC has to offer, it is offering a one-week free guest pass to prospective members who take a tour of the facility. It also is featuring a special winter membership promotion, “New Year, New You.” Families and individuals who join by January 31 receive $100 off membership. They get $100 in JCC cash, which can be applied toward JCC classes and programs, as well. If they are referred by a friend who is already a JCC member, they will both get an additional $50 in JCC cash to apply to JCC classes and programs.
