The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly has rescheduled its free community-wide 75-minute Zumba party. It is now planned for Saturday, February 4, from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m.
Participants must be 12 and older and will have the chance to dance nonstop for 75 minutes to great Latin, hip-hop, and African music. It will be led by a team of expert JCC Zumba instructors, including Cat Veca-Mejia, Lauren Greene, Hilah Reva, Jaclyn Alterwein, and Evangelina Bishop.
Zumba is one of more than 90 complimentary drop-in group exercise classes that are offered to JCC members every week. 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 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,” Health and Wellness director 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.”
