Originally created by Alberto “Beto” Perez in Columbia, Zumba® is a Latin inspired dance fitness class that combines interval training sessions with fast and slow rhythms to sculpt and tone your body while burning fat.  Our goal is simple: We want you to want to work out, to love working out, and to get hooked.  Zumba® fanatics achieve long-term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in every calorie-burning, body-energizing class.  This class is perfect for all fitness levels and no dance experience is necessary!

Zumba®Toning - For those who want to party, but put extra emphasis on toning and sculpting to define those muscles!  It works by utilizing the challenge of adding resistance by using Zumba®Toning Sticks or light weights, which helps you focus on specific muscle groups, so you (and your muscles) stay engaged!  By using lightweight maraca-like toning sticks or light weights, Zumba Toning enhances sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning target zones, including arms, core and lower body.

So, join Dawn George, certified dance and Zumba instructor, as she leads you through the latest in fitness fun.  What are you waiting for?  Ditch the workout....join the party!

In a world threatened by overpopulation and over-exploited land, is there a way out of the coming food crisis?  For the makers of SEED: The Untold Story, the answer lies in the creation and maintenance of localized seed banks where the collection of traditional, often ancient seed species will ensure both planetary biodiversity and self-sustaining food supplies.  This inspiring film tells the stories of courageous individuals and communities across the planet: tribal peoples, citizen-activists, farmers, and others all working to ensure the earth's sustenance and survival.  SEED: The Untold Story reminds us of the inherent and unstoppable power of community activism in pursuit of the preservation of our land, our communities, and our lives.
