Think you can’t dance? Come and find out the truth: of course you can, and it feels good, and life is better when you do. Zumba is an amazing full-body workout disguised as an inclusive, feel-good, easy to follow dance party with Latin and international rhythms. Megan’s fun, sweaty, and supportive classes will boost your core strength, improve your endurance, and make you look even better in pants. When a Zumba instructor first invited her to try it, Megan said, “I’m uncoordinated, forty pounds overweight, and I can’t dance… but sure, I’ll try.” Four years later, Megan is known as an encouraging, light-hearted and high-energy instructor who personally invites you to try it too. Especially if you think you can’t. Join the party!
