Zumba is here

GLADSTONE residents just have to dance.

And now they can because Zumba is here.

With classes up until this point only being held in Tannum Sands, the Gladstone PCYC now has classes running every Monday and Friday.

Women from around the region danced this morning away at the Zumba launch with instructor Gabirlle McCarthy.

Zumba, though fun and entertaining, gives you a full body workout and at the end you will feel pumped after a hard training session.

Mother and daughters Chantelle, Mary and Angela O'neill were there and loved every minute of it.

“It is really hard, but it was a good workout. Now we know how unfit we are,” Chantelle said.

For all three it was their first time at a Zumba class and they are looking forward to coming back next time.

“It was good; the best part was the dancing and moving.”

Zumba caters for everyone, both young and old and male or female.

You can go at your own pace and just dance away to the rhythm. If you would like to give Zumba a go, classes are on every Friday and Monday morning from 9.30am to 10.15am, or Monday and Friday afternoons from 5.15pm to 6pm.

Places are limited and bookings are essential.

Costs are $10 for members and $12 for non members.

Child minding is available but only during the morning sessions. For more information you can contact the Gladstone PCYC on 4972 3122.
