Tonya Speed’s Dance Connection has connected restless feet with inspiring rhythms for more than 20 years in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. During one-hour Zumba classes, one of the studio's seasoned instructors coaxes shy dance muscles and hesitant limbs to sway, stomp, and groove to exotic Latin and international music. The sessions, limited to 20 participants, can decrease stress and shake off pesky shoulder anvils. Students should come in fitness attire and comfortable tennis shoes for the upbeat full-body workouts, designed to incinerate calories, drop pounds, increase energy levels, and pound unruly floorboards back into place. Zumba participants must be 12 years of age or older.
