Kassie Fugate-Cate, Director of Strategic Communication, has officially brought the Zumba exercise program to Fort Scott Community College.
Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Although this is where Zumba started, Fugate-Cate has added a more modern twist to the classes as well, using today’s popular music and dance steps.
Fugate-Cate fell in love with the Zumba program when she had the opportunity to be a teacher’s assistant for the class that was offered when she went to Pittsburg State University, she said.
Fugate-Cate thought that getting certified to teach a Zumba class would be a great way to get back into Zumba and also show other students and community members what a great program it is.
The class is offered every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-6: 30 pm.
Tuesday, September 11, was the first class.
Until further notice, the classes will be held in the auditorium at the college’s Ellis Fine Arts Center.
Each class has a $3.00 fee and welcomes men and women of all ages.
Cate says, “No one is too old for this class!”
