Zumba! The fitness program to a Latin beat made its way to the Home recently, when 11 students and their instructor gave a interactive demonstration for our Residents.
Zumba, a Latin inspired dance/exercise program set to lively dance music is a new phenomenon sweeping the country. We invited in Marlene Suchora, a local Zumba instructor from St. John’s Lutheran Church here in Oregon, to demonstrate the program for our Residents. Marlene brought 11 of her students and gave an upbeat presentation. She modified the Zumba routine for our Residents and assisted them by modifying the movements to fit their individual abilities. The Residents enjoyed the fast paced, upbeat, and energetic music!
