SARC gauging interest in Zumba class

Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center staffers are considering the addition of a Zumba class to the facility's offerings.

The proposed Latin/hip-hop dance/aerobics class would be from June through July and be taught by Staci Stratton, a Sequim High School graduate and exercise science major at the University of Idaho.

A Zumba workout mixes body-sculpting movements with easy-to-follow dance steps mainly derived from Latin music.

To add one's name to an "interested" list or for more information, call the SARC front desk at 683-3344 or Stratton at 477-9707.
