(Courtesy of Kaplen JCC on the Palisades) The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is holding a free Saturday Night Zumba Party on February 10 from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m.. The latest rage in endorphin-boosting fun, Zumba combines Latin, Hip-Hop, African and Israeli music to produce a high-energy blend of music and great dance moves. The party will be led by a team of expert JCC Zumba instructors, who will lead people aged 12 and up through 75 minutes of easy-to-follow moves, allowing everyone from beginners to serious dance lovers to take part in a one-of-a-kind, not-to-be-missed fitness party.

“In an effort to encourage people to engage in more healthful activities, we always look to feature a wide variety of fitness options,” said Hagit Tal, group exercise director. “Zumba is one great option, because it provides great music and dance routines that are fun to learn. It also offers a great cardio workout that incorporates high and low aerobic intervals and an appealing routine that keeps people motivated. And keeping people motivated is our goal.”

The JCC has over 65,000 feet of dedicated wellness space and offers year-round health and wellness programs geared to the entire family. It features all the latest in cardio, strength and exercise equipment, including a state-of-the-art dedicated Pilates apparatus training studio, cycling bikes with advanced Bluetooth technology, The Benjamin Bergen Youth Fitness Center (offering age-appropriate fitness equipment, training and drop-in exercise classes for 6- to 13-year-olds), and a luxurious spa center offering massages, facials, waxing and more. This comprehensive, ultra-modern recreation facility is a place where members can enjoy individualized instruction, all the latest equipment and a motivational staff that can assist people in achieving their fitness goals. There are also private family changing rooms and complimentary babysitting to members while they work out.
