Zumba a hit for all ages
FROM dancing solo in the living room of her home to instructing classes at the Christ Church hall, Summer McBryde never expected she would be a Zumba teacher.
But as a smile beams from her face as she bounces around on stage teaching her Monday morning Zumba Gold Class, its clear Ms McBryde is not looking back.
With well attended classes now running three times a week, Ms McBryde said it was great to see the physical improvements her students were making.
Sandra Perkins has attended the classes for several years after first seeing the Zumba style on television.
“I thought it wasn’t for me, then I rang up and she said it was for all ages,” Ms Perkins said.
“It’s been tremendous, my aches and pains aren’t as bad because I’m not as tight. “It’s really worth it.” Eve Voysey said the classes could be tailored to your fitness level as you work at your own pace.
“The feeling that I can dance for an hour is phenomenal,” she said.
Tyrone Joyce lets daughter Layla join in at the end of class and she couldn't wipe the smile off her face.
