Zumba fitness is as popular on Rarotonga as it is in the rest of the world. There are classes morning, noon and night in various villages around the island, and it costs only two or three dollars a session.
Locals and visitors, young and old, big and small you’ll find us all dancing off the kilos, keeping in shape and having a ball!
And we’ve got some really great instructors showing how it’s done.
Three of the best, Frankie, Nana and Miss G, recently organised a fundraiser for the local Girls’ Brigade. It was held at the Telecom Sports Arena, built for the mini games in 2009 with space for two full-size netball courts, so there was plenty of room to move and the sound system at the TCA is pretty good too.
It was all very kid-friendly. Plenty of space for the little ones to sit down near mum or get up, wander around and join in.
I had a great time and you can see from the smiling faces in the video that everyone else did too.
Having fun, keeping fit AND helping out a good cause. What more could you ask for?
