Wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat and towel.
Zumba Class, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Fisher Pavilion Roof, invites participants to join in an energetic hour-long workout night that uses simple choreography to take them on a dance journey around the world through Latin , rhythms from around the world, West Africa, belly dancing, pop and classic rock.
