Keller Williams Hosts Zumba Dance Concert at Kings Harbor
Do you have the New Year’s resolution to exercise more? If so, don’t miss the Keller Williams concert in January. Local health club instructors will lead Zumba dancing and Latin music will be provided by the band Dozziz Tropical. This free concert will be held on Fri., Jan. 15 from 7-10 p.m. at Kings Harbor in Kingwood.
Rain date is Jan. 22.
Zumba is a Latin-inspired aerobic dance fitness program designed to burn calories. “This type of workout is appealing to those who want to sweat and work hard, but it is still fun,” says Cindy Samudio who has been teaching Zumba classes with her husband Joe for the past five years. Participants say that they get so caught up in Zumba dancing that the time just flies by – it doesn’t feel like you are exercising.
Zumba has easy-to-follow moves from traditional Latin dances such as salsa, merengue, flamenco and tango. It’s appropriate for all ages and abilities. “Nobody is excluded from this workout,” says Cindy. “New people can easily keep up with the class just as well as someone who has been going for years.”
Trish King, a Zumba instructor from QLS and Lone-Star College Kingwood, has several tips for first-time Zumba dancers planning to attend the concert:
1. Dress comfortably.
2. Wear comfortable footwear such as sneakers.
3. Bring a towel.
4. Bring a jacket to warm up with between sets.
5. Bring a water bottle.
Participating Zumba instructors are: Trish King, QLS and Lone-Star College Kingwood; Cindy and Joe Samudio, Lake Houston Family YMCA; Rianne Garcia, Ekam Yoga Center; Chari Paulson, Kingwood Athletic Club; Melissa Reaux Dismukes, Halliburton Corporate Gym and Cornelia Berrocal, C-Results Fitness; Carmen Clemence, Lifetime Fitness; and Velia Abdala, Zumba with Velia.
The concert’s special guests will be the Hispanic Student Society International and the Hispanic Executive Society, which provides leadership and mentoring services to economically disadvantaged students at Humble, Atascocita and Summer Creek high schools. Donations will be accepted for the organization’s college scholarship fund.
We suggest that you bring a blanket, a lawn chair and a cooler with your favorite beverages. And don’t forget your dancing shoes. You won’t be able to sit still for long!
