Free Zumba Gold presentation offered

TERRE HAUTE — The Maple Center for Integrative Health and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offer a free presentation on Zumba Gold by Cathleen Drobny from 1 to 3:30 p.m. May 1 in Westminster Village at 1120 East Davis Drive.

Drobny is licensed to instruct Zumba, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold, Zumba Gold Toning and Zumbatomic. She will explain about what is distinctive about Zumba Gold classes. She will also give some of her own history and talk about the history and concept of the Zumba program. Zumba Gold is different from regular Zumba in that the focus is on safe movement for everyone. Zumba Gold is low impact, with fewer transitions and turns.  The warm-up and the cool down/stretch are designed for each group session and often a balance segment is included.

Drobny will also tell what she has witnessed in her own classes, and will cite studies about the benefits of dancing on special populations.  Zumba Gold Classes address the need for cardiovascular exercise for all ages.

For centuries, dance manuals and other writings have lauded the health benefits of dancing, usually as physical exercise.  More recently medical research on further health benefits of dancing, such as stress reduction and increased serotonin level, with its sense of well-being.  

Drobny plans to play some Zumba music, showing examples of some of the rhythms used in her classes, talk a little about the country of origin, and show some steps she might use to represent that rhythm.

The Maple Center for Integrative Health offers Zumba Gold with Cathleen on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5:45 - 6:45 p.m. The classes are held at the Maple Avenue United Methodist Church, 1203 Maple Ave., Terre Haute.
