Zumba a hit for all ages

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

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.

PHO­TOS: LEAH KIDD

Ty­rone Joyce lets daugh­ter Layla join in at the end of class and she couldn't wipe the smile off her face.
