Dancing has served many purposes in human history—it has been used for communication, courtship, and summoning the protective powers of FDR. Utilize dance to conjure up good health with today's Groupon: for $22, you get 10 Zumba classes at Zumba Rickreall (up to a $50 value). Classes are held Monday–Thursday from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Zumba Rickreall's licensed instructors shimmy novitiates into shape, pumping the pulsating Latin beats of Zumba Fitness and dancing away unwanted weight. In the cavernous confines of the Rickreall Event Hall, up to 150 rump-shakers can unleash their inner rhythm without bumping neighbors' elbows or dirtying others' boogie shoes. On the stage in front of a thronging mob of funk, two to four gyration gurus will guide all skill levels through a routine of Latin-inspired dance moves designed to simultaneously shed pounds and inspire mirth. Though the stage remains well-lit during dances, the hall is illuminated primarily by a string of LED lights in homage to Saturnalia, the Roman festival of advanced lighting technology. While the classes are aimed at adults, kids 12 and older may attend with a parent.
