Virtual Zumba

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Virtual

Join us for a 6-week virtual Zumba® series, led by local Zumba® instructor, Lisa Harris. Zumba® takes the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called "exercise in disguise." Perfect for everybody and every body! 

 

Please wear comfortable clothing and sneakers and be sure to have a water bottle nearby.

 

Registration via Zoom is required. Please click here to register. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the session.

Praised by media far and wide, including NPR, The Washington Post, and Entertainment Weekly,  Guillory has truly made a name for herself.

Guillory will be in conversation with fellow author Alisha Rai who pens award-winning contemporary romances. Her novels have been featured on the IndieNext and the LibraryReads lists and been named the Best Books of the Year by the Washington Post, NPR, New York Public Library, Amazon, Entertainment Weekly, Reader’s Digest, Kirkus, “O” the Oprah Magazine and Cosmopolitan Magazine. When Alisha is not writing, she is traveling or tweeting.

While We Were Dating is available for pre-order at Underground Books. https://underground-books.indiecommerce.com
