Downtown Zumba following grows

Kacy Hibdon, [email protected]

Zumba is an exercise craze that has swept over the nation with Ennis as no exception, and now fans will have two more chances each week to join the party downtown.

Downtown Zumba is currently held Monday-Friday from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. and on Mondays and Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m., but starting this Tuesday, the 6 p.m. class will also be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday of each week.

“The 4:30 p.m. class has been such a steady crowd so we felt we needed to do it for the 6 p.m. class, as well,” said instructor Tonya Barber.

Instructor Shanna Matous-Davis said the 4:30 p.m. class was initially geared toward the many teachers in the community while the 6 p.m. class caters more toward the traditional 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. crowd of “Zumba addicts.”

For those who haven’t “ditched the workout and joined the party” as the Zumba slogan suggests and may not know what it’s all about, Instructor Ann Mathes said it will make people re-think traditional exercise.

“Zumba is a Latin-inspired exercise class that is so much fun you won’t feel like you’re exercising,” she said. “After you do Zumba you won’t want to get back on the treadmill.”
