Kids, Get Ready to Shake It: Zumbatomic Classes Begin Tuesday in Edmonds

The dance fitness class is a youthful version of adult Zumba.

You've probably heard of Zumba, a dance fitness program that incorporates Latin music but other musical styles as well.

Adults aren't the only ones who can get caught up in the craze.

On Tuesday, the Edmonds Parks and Recreation department will offer a class called Zumbatomic, geared for kids 4-12, at the Frances Anderson Center.

Kids who sign up can learn cool dance steps and routines to kid-friendly songs.  Dance moves are simplified so that the younger set will get a sense of accomplishment, said Tammy Rankins, recreation coordinator.

"They will develop balance, discipline, memory and creativity, all while being physically active to help develop strong muscles and bones, weight control and self-esteem," she said.

The class is for boys and girls.

Classes are Tuesday through Feb. 14. Hours are 4:30-5:15 p.m. for ages 3-7; 5:30-6:30 p.m. for ages 8-12.

The fee is $36 for Edmonds residents, $41 for nonresidents.

You can register through Edmonds Parks and Recreation at 425-771-0230 or by going to www.reczone.org.

The is at 700 Main St.
