This class is open to every fitness level, so please join us, just drop in. If you are shying away because of being self conscious about your 'dancing ability' or lack thereof, here is my favorite quote from a newcomer who was expecting the buff Spandex crowd: "This is Zumba for normal people!" Classes are free for the first class, $6 ongoing. Please wear comfortable 'work out' clothes, good sneakers, and bring water to drink. For more information, you can email the instructor Debbie Speed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
