How safe are you to dance? 
Keeping up with Dance Out Diabetes

Guidelines developed by your Board of Directors will help to prevent dance or exercise injuries.
Do you ever wonder what your blood sugar or blood pressure should be to be safe before starting your physical activity? Check out the recommendations here.
Although these guidelines are geared towards dance, you will find some general tips as well to keep you safe. 


Zumba Gold THIS Saturday, 6/9, 1-3 pm!
(Download flyer and share with others  here.)

Rossy Leon is BACK by popular demand. She is a certified Zumba instructor and will be teaching the Zumba Gold version for us on Saturday. 


What is Zumba Gold? Think of it as an "easy" Zumba (warning - you will sweat!).  Zumba Gold has a slower pace and modified moves that everyone can follow while enjoying the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton. Rossy Leon has a YouTube playlist which inspires you to move your caderas (hips).
