While in-person activities and events are being canceled left and right to promote social distancing and follow CDC guidelines, opportunities to participate via livestream are popping up in their place.
While social distancing and self-isolation are necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19, considerable efforts by people and organizations around the world are being made to ensure that physical isolation doesn’t lead to despair and people are still able to connect with others, partake in their hobbies, and be entertained.
This was the idea behind continuing Zumba classes remotely—bringing a class that brings people joy, physical fitness, and activity directly to their living rooms.
The Zumba program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a unique fitness program that provides as much fun as it does exercise.
The Tamarac Recreation Center’s Zumba instructor is providing online classes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
In order to participate, dancers need to pregister in order to be approved by the instructor, then download the Zoom app on the phone or computer and enter the meeting ID for the class: 4027801889, and the password: zumbalove.
The instructor plans to authorize residents ten minutes before each class. While the class normally costs $7 for residents and $8 for non-residents, there is no charge for the Livestream. All that students need to do is make sure they have enough space to move and be ready to follow the instructor.
