Boost your fitness with Zumba in the Park


ROSEBURG, Ore. – Zumba in the Park returns to Roseburg in June!

Burn some calories at free Zumba in the Park sessions on Wednesday evenings starting June 15, thanks to the YMCA of Douglas County and the Roseburg Parks and Recreation Department.

The Y and Roseburg Parks and Rec take the “work” out of workout by mixing low- and high-intensity moves in these interval-style, family friendly dance fitness parties on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. through August 24. Please note that a Zumba session won’t be offered Wednesday, August 10.

“This class is a great opportunity to get outdoors, get a great workout and enjoy our parks all at the same time,” said Roseburg Parks and Recreation Program Manager Val Ligon. “We are excited to partner with the YMCA again this summer.”

Zumba is a dance fitness program developed by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez in the 1990s.

In Roseburg, a YMCA instructor will teach the high-energy cardio dance classes to upbeat music. The sessions are held in the grass just west of the large pavilion in Stewart Park.

No registration is needed, but please arrive a few minutes early to sign in. Wear comfortable workout clothing and bring water.

For more information, call the YMCA at 541-440-9622 or Roseburg Parks and Recreation at 541-492-6899.
