Chair Zumba Gold Classes Encourage Seniors to Shimmy & Shake it Up!!

Chair Zumba Gold Fitness Class

Lighthouse Pt. Independent Living Community,  Chesapeake, VA

  Chair Zumba Gold Fitness Classes invite all people to dance, regardless of physical limitations. Participants tell me that Chair Zumba Gold Classes bring them so much joy, as they remember those days when they could dance for hours while standing. It reminds them of their youth, when they danced to Latin music. It reminds them that they can still feel sexy and alive…and still ‘feel the rhythm of the music’.

Chair Zumba Gold Fitness classes provide people with a fun, joyful experience of moving their bodies once again to the rhythm of the Latin beat. Some are ‘dancing’ for the first time, while others are able to dance again, after many years of being unable to do so.

We dance Cha-Cha, Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Cumbia, Belly dance, Flamenco, Bachata with lots of upper body movement, as well as fancy footwork. We’re keeping joints flexible, burning calories, detoxifying, stretching and strengthening muscles, increasing cardiovascular function and even breaking a sweat.

Participants in their 90’s,  shimmy and shake it up to the Latin rhythms of Zumba Gold

I  encourage them to shimmy and shake their belly dancing scarves, wrapped around their hips, so I can hear the coins jingling and jangling. I encourage them to hoot and holler, laugh and play with the music. We have a ball together and they feel alive and plugged in.
