Is Zumba the thing that will finally get you to make exercise a habit in 2014? It's got some of the necessary ingredients: good music, dance moves that are fun and easy to learn, and a room full of sweaty and enthusiastic dance partners. If that sounds good to you, then grab 15 bucks and head to the Cyril Magnin Ballroom on the 4th floor of the Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel tomorrow at 7pm (or buy tix in advance, see below). The hotel, along with San Francisco Dance Fitness, is hosting a giant, 1.5-hour-long Zumba dance party.
All proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association, and the organizers are encouraging red workout-wear to support the cause. Some of the city's most popular instructors will be teaching, and there will be prizes! Buy tickets and get more info here
