Zumba Party in the Park



Such a joyful scene in Roberts Park, Saltaire on Sunday when lots of young women got together for a 'Zumba Party in the Park' to raise money for The Haven in Leeds, an organisation that provides support and counselling for women with breast cancer.








The mass zumba workout was organised by the proprietor of Shipley dance school 'The DM Academy', Deana Morgan, who was herself diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006.  (Zumba, for those who don't know, is the latest fitness craze, fusing dance moves with Latin rhythms. "Ditch the workout, join the party!")






I must say it looked like lots of fun.  There was a great atmosphere in Roberts Park, enlivened still further by the arrival of the local Shipley fire crew! (Who could blame them for coming along to lend support..?)

  5. Great to see people having fun, getting fit and raising money for a good cause. I like Zumba too, but I hurt my knee and haven't been able to do it for a while.

  7. No, I didn't dance! I'm hopelessly badly co-ordinated - and the moves were highly choreographed.
