It can be both intimidating and motivating that the vast majority of the campus (or so it seems) gets a daily dose of physical activity. But, if you’d equate running Vermont hills with taking a stroll through hell, or would rather be tethered to a library carrel than brave the humid, and often over-crowded fitness center, don’t be dissuaded; there’s a new fitness option. Enter, Zumba.
Zumba is a high-energy fitness dance class that features salsa, hip hop, samba, merengue, mambo, pop, cha cha, reggaeton, cumbia, belly dance, tango, and more. Sounds saucy, to say the least. According to our dear middbeat submitters, by “treating yourself” to an hour of these “fun, easy-to-learn dance moves,” you’ll not only break a serious sweat, but “can burn 300-1,000 calories in just one class.”
If you’re into it, Zumba classes will be held here at Midd every week with a professional Zumba instructor named Lindsey, from 12:30 to 1:30 every Wednesday in the Field House, 3rd Floor Rehersal Space. You can drop in to test it out for $5 per class, or pay $60 for 12 classes (once a week for the semester). The first class is this Wednesday on September 17, and registration for the 12-class package continues online (go/boxoffice) or at the McCullough or CFA box offices until September 26 at go/tickets. If you’ve got any questions or want to learn more about the class, contact Lindsey herself at firstname.lastname@example.org.
