This past Friday, CAB hosted its first Zumba class.
Zumba combines Latin and international music with a fun and effective workout system. The aerobic fitness class incorporates dancing inspired by various styles of Latin American music and movements. The different types of dances incorporated into a Zumba class includes hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and the mambo.
CAB decided to try something new and different — something that more people could get involved in. Zumba is not just about dancing, it’s about getting a workout and having a good time while doing it. According to students who attended, there was a great turnout, with about 30 in attendance.
“The teacher was great,” said Katie Langland, a first-year. “The energy in the room was amazing and full of positivity. It was a ton of fun and everyone who was there loved it.”
Some of the members from the Loras College sorority Alpha Sigma Alpha also an appearance in support of the CAB event. It’s safe to say that fitness classes like Zumba will be featured in future CAB events.
