Sign up to the Rhondda Cynon Taf Zumba-thon on May 12
A charity Zumba-thon is being held in Rhondda Cynon Taf in aid of the Mayor’s Appeal - and everyone is invited along to the party!
Zumba, a Latin-inspired dance fitness programme incorporating hip-hop, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts and belly dance moves, is a popular leisure activity at Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Leisure Centres.
But now you can get fit as well as raise money for worthy causes at the same time as Rhondda Cynon Taf Mayor, Cllr Sylvia Jones, joins forces with a team from Zumba South Wales.
A charity Zumba-thon, in aid of the Rhondda Cynon Taf Mayor’s Appeal, takes place at Rhondda Sports Centre, Gelligaled Park, Ystrad, on Saturday, May 12, from 1pm until 5pm.
All monies raised at the event will go to the Mayor’s Charities, which this year are Viva Wales; RCT Crossroads; Rhondda Powerhouse Trust, Llwynypia; Mid Rhondda Operatic Society; GTFM Community Radio (Taff Ely); Colstars Youth Theatre (Cynon Valley).
Refreshments will be provided on the day and a prize draw will take place, with some fantastic prizes up for grabs.
The four-hour Zumba-thon will be a massive calorie-burning fitness party as well as a marathon fundraiser. The party is open to all ages and is suitable for beginners to the more experience Zumba dancers.
