Senior’s Zumba Record Has Been Set

By News

We knew they were determined but didn’t realise how much. During Senior’s Week, our Zumba clients set about to establish the Shire record for the longest running senior’s Zumba session. The goal was a minimum 2 hours and maximum 3 hours. In the rules, the group needed a minimum of 10 to remain dancing  to record the official time. We are thrilled that all 29 participants remained “zumba-ring” right through to the end.
To learn more about the event and join in on the recognition of this outstanding achievement, see this week’s article in The Leader.
