Dan Buchtal, instructor at Mount Si Sports + Fitness, will get people moving with a Zumba demonstration, 4 p.m. at the Community Stage, located at the corner of North Bend Way and Bendigo Boulevard.

Zumba is great exercise, and one of the more popular formats at Mount Si Sports, says owner Ben Cockman.

The program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program full of calorie-burning, body-energizing, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life, Cockman explains.

The routines feature interval training sessions, combining fast and slow rhythms and resistance training, to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. Add some Latin flavor and international zest into the mix and you’ve got a Zumba class.

Zumba is now being taught at over 50,000 locations in 75 countries and has changed the lives of Zumba fanatics worldwide.
