New Year's Party, December 29!

NEW YEAR'S ZUMBA PARTY at Orem Friendship Center, Dec. 29, 7:30-9:30. $5 entry.

The first 24 people in the door get a Zumba jingle bracelet to "ring in the new year." These are rare items! And we will have a drawing for prizes throughout the night and you get to PICK your favorite from the prize table--tank tops, t-shirts, and other ZumbaWear. You should not miss it! Meet our new instructors, Kristi and Mikayla, as well as dance favorites with Shelly, Marquita, and Nina.

This is a great time to bring friends who have been thinking of trying Zumba. Help them get a headstart on their New Year's resolutions! Invite them with the event link below (and then carpool to the event together!):

A great woman from our class shared this post from another blog with a similar sentiment and I thought I'd share it with you as well. You might enjoy the rest of this blog. It's loaded with good thoughts and recipes from a person who has lost 135 pounds and maintained it. She knows both worlds quite well. You'll have something in common no matter what. Check it out:
