The Senior L.I.F.E. Center of Loomis is collaborating with McLaughlin Studios to bring something new and exciting to the local senior community.
Jennifer Moore, one of the studio’s dance instructors, is taking over the exercise classes at the Senior L.I.F.E. Center and will bring her own flair and spunk to classes offered there.
Moore has been dancing for 30 years and is looking forward to sparking activity among seniors.
Moore’s extensive dance background makes her the perfect person for the job.Years of experience as a professional dancer and dance instructor have allowed her to master how to mold her teaching methods to fit her students.
Stretchersize, a class created by the staff at the Senior L.I.F.E. Center, “offers strength building, toning and increased flexibility for the more mature body,” according to the Center’s website.
Along with taking over this existing Stretchersize class, Moore will let her love of Latin dance shine through by teaching Zumba Gold, a slower paced dance class specifically geared toward seniors. This class allows participants to move and dance, while also enjoying a cardio workout and strengthening muscles and bones.
Moore doesn’t want anyone to be discouraged from trying her class.
“You will never know if you like it if you don’t try it. The beauty of Zumba is that you can go at your own pace. Everyone is different, so do what you can and most importantly, have fun,” Moore said.
Zumba Gold will be offered at the Center beginning at 9 a.m., Feb. 5.
