They have teamed up with local Zumba instructors to offer a kids Zumba workshop on Tuesday 23 January.

The class will be held in the acacia/boronia room of the Tomaree Community Centre.

Let the kids burn off energy in this Latin inspired fitness workout designed just for kids.

They’ll be in the groove with amazing music and great exercise in a fun and energising class.

Zumba is an exercise fitness program created by a Colombian dancer and cyclist/choreographer.

Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements.

The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo.

Entry is only $5, which goes back into supporting the wonderful work the Tomaree Community/Neighbourhood centre does.

Tomaree Neighbourhood Centre Administrative Coordinator Georgina Scott told News Of The Area, “We’re excited to provide these activities for children at the centre.”

“We love to see them being active and trying something new!”

“It’s guaranteed to be a fun-filled class with lots of energy, movement and laughter,” she said.

Any primary school aged child is welcome to attend, and no previous experience with Zumba is need to shake a tail feather and give something new a try.

Tomaree Neighbourhood Centre volunteer Helen Dykes said, “Zumba is a fantastic way to encourage healthy activities in our young people, whilst having a whole lot of fun.”

“We encourage as many parents and carers as possible to sign their children up to give it a try.”

Caregivers are asked to drop into the centre to register and pay for your child by Monday 22 January.

If you have any enquiries, please call the centre on 4984 6220.
