Jumpstart January: Fitness Dancing for Seniors with Rita Swidrowski, Session #1

Wednesday, January 17 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Who knew that dance could be enjoyed into our older age?!  Rita Swidrowski, a senior and an avid Zumba dancer, teaches beginner dance classes for active older adults at the Belfast YMCA. She will lead a variety of dances with cha cha, twist, boogie, salsa, mambo steps & more to a variety of tunes. No dance experience is necessary, & steps are shown & cued. Repetition makes for easy following & modifications are shown. Each person is encouraged to follow his or her own body’s needs & styles. Studies show that movement & exercise are major factors in staying healthy & fit into older age! Come dance with us! 

There are two sessions of fitness dancing: Wednesday, January 17 at 2:00 p.m., and Wednesday, January 24, at 2:00 p.m. Please only sign up for one session. Both sessions will take place in the Picker Room.

Sessions are limited to 9 participants. Registration is first come, first serve. Registration requests will be honored in the order in which they were received. If spots fill up, you will not be guaranteed a spot. Sign up by emailing jsagaser@librarycamden.org, calling the library at 207-236-3440, or at the circulation desk.
