Hi Everyone, 

The zumba teachers at my gym have created a Zumbathon charity event that will help raise funds for a great community cause, Dancing for Dreams! 

The 90 minute Zumbathon will be held on Saturday, April 12th at the College Gardens Elementary School (near Montgomery College in Rockville). The event starts at 10:00 AM, but doors will open at 9:30. A $10 donation will be collected at the door. 

This event's proceeds will benefit the Dance Place, a non-profit in Washington, D.C., whose mission is to build a community of dance artists, audiences, and students through high quality performances, commissions, training and educational programs. 

The proceeds will fund their children and youth educational programs, such as NEXTgeneration, "Energizers", and Training in Dance and Arts Administration. All programs focus on building a nurturing community and meeting challenges faced through childhood and adolescence by delivering and executing a curriculum involving life skills, dance, art education, promotion of physical activity, and the development of leadership and tutoring skills. 

For more information about the Dance Place, please visit www.danceplace.org 

They will also be raffling gift cards and free local zumba class passes. 

Please bring cash and do not miss out on this opportunity!!

Water will be available on site for sale- Cash only
