Before dance was identified as an effective workout routine, it was believed to be useful only for stamping down dirt floors in barns and avoiding falling hail. Give new meaning to your feet’s lives with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get four drop-in Zumba classes at La Bella Dance Company in Clovis (a $20 value). Zumba classes take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday with Phillip.
Experienced instructor Phillip teaches students to shake their hips and step to Latin rhythms while staying fit during Tuesday-evening Zumba classes. The one-hour workshop allows dancers to shimmy off surfeit calories while following choreographed routines that meld aerobic workouts with dance styles such as hip-hop, samba, salsa, belly dance, and full-contact mime. Classes accommodate all levels, and the evening class time easily accommodates after-work fit-seekers.
