Shake and shimmy your way to fitness with today's side deal: for $30, you get five Zumba classes at Alaska Dance Theatre (a $60 value). A local non-profit with more than 600 students, Alaska Dance Theatre excites the weekly urge to boogie to intoxicatingly rapid drums and upbeat rhythms. Zumba classes draw from salsa, merengue, cumbia, reggaeton, and samba dance styles, stimulating the body to the pulsing rhythms of Latin music. Fitness seekers will gather in a mirror-lined studio where feet bounce and hips undulate in a time-honored tribute to maracas. Following the workout, cool showers are available in the locker room for those with dampened foreheads. Classes take place on Wednesday evenings from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Though Alaska Dance Theatre has yet to receive many reviews, the dance company has more than 700 Facebook followers.
