Last Thursday, the Downtown Hyde Park Farmer’s Market opened for its 2018 season. Every other Thursday, Gigi Tonye’, dance and fitness instructor, will lead an outdoor Zumba class. This “Zumba Bash” will be from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. (weather permitting) in Harper Court, 5235 S. Harper Court. The next class will take place on June 28.
Tonye’ will also be leading a free Zumba class every other Saturday at Kimbark Plaza, 1236 E. 53rd St., from 9am to10am. The next class will take place June 23.
For “Zumba Bash” events, please bring gym shoes, a towel and water. According to the event website, this will be “an electrifying, fun time,” and is not a workout but a dance party.
The classes are free and open to all fitness and experience levels. To confirm your spot register online in advance. There are only 30 spots available per class.
