Zumba Gold targets the largest growing segment of the population: baby boomers.

What stays the same are all the elements that Zumba is known for: the zesty Latin music; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement, and fitness as a regular part of their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly—and most of all, fun.

This program is presented by Sanford Wellness, and there is no cost to participants. To register for Zumba Gold (Class #250011), visit www.siouxfalls.org/parks or call (605) 367-8222. Registration closes five business days in advance.
