The Zumba Fitness Program, sponsored by the Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department, will resume on January 28, 2014. Classes will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday evenings through May 2014.

Join Jessalyn Watson, licensed Zumba Instructor, for this amazing total body workout. Zumba will get your heart pumping and increase your endurance - you'll have more energy and burn fat. Besides the physical benefits, Zumba is a "feel good" workout, not a dreaded chore - the music is motivating and fun, you'll leave happy!  

Participants may register for classes at the Civic Center recreation building Monday through Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. A discount punch card, good for five classes, is available for $25.00. A discount punch card for nine classes is available for $45.00 and includes a free 10th class. The individual class fee is $6.00. Punch cards purchased in 2013 will be honored for classes in 2014. 

An annual $20 non-resident fee will be charged to all participants living outside of the Oak Ridge city limits.
