For many Canberra office workers, their hour lunch break is spent eating their humble ham sandwich or chicken salad at their desk while browsing their emails. While this may seem like an efficient way to go about the day because their hectic schedule has made them far too busy for a break, they are missing out on more than just fresh air.
Locals are being encouraged to step away from their keyboard and head down to Garema Place and enjoy a little boogie and a little exercise, thanks to free lunchtime Zumba classes in Garema Place, starting on Tuesday, 14 August.
Every Tuesday and Thursday until late November, the Spanish Speakers Association have organised these Zumba classes, giving Canberrans a chance to enjoy the fresh air during their lunch break while taking part in a fun exercise routine with their work colleagues.
The Spanish Speakers Association, a non-profit organisation run by a volunteer committee of parents, are passionate about getting people moving in a supportive environment and have created a dance-fitness class that is friendly and fun.
The classes are open to everyone, no matter the level of experience or grooving talent.
To participate, simply arrive at Garema Place by 12:30 pm on a Tuesday or a Thursday and join in the fun. There is no need to sign up beforehand.
