Get ready to dance in the pool! Auburn City Pools will have Aqua Zumba in the 2017 season!

Aqua Zumba integrates the Zumba formula and philosophy into traditional aqua fitness for a safe, effective and challenging water-based workout that is not your normal aqua class. Combining Latin dance rhythms and water resistance, participants will be able to feel their muscle working nonstop in this unique, fun and challenging aqua class. All exercises are performed to music in water that is 4 - 5 feet deep. Participants are encouraged to wear inexpensive water shoes to protect their feet while jogging in the water. Swimming ability is not required and life vests are available. There will be no classes held on 6/29 and 7/27. For more information about this class, please contact the instructor, Leigh Anne Dagalea, at leighanne.dagalea@gmail.com.
