B'ville: Hop on the Zumba train

Janet Wojnovich may have been the only participant in Canton Woods Senior Center's inaugural zumba class, but she certainly looked as though she was enjoying the dance-exercise program.

Wojnovick followed the lead of instructor Lee Pomeroy as the two line-danced across the center's dining area accompanied by upbeat, rhythmical music. Pomeroy brought the 45-minute dance and exercise program to seniors last Wednesday and will return at 3:15 p.m. every Wednesday beginning Aug. 26 to continue the fun.

"[Zumba] is a low-impact exercise for our mature participants," said Joan Ferstler, assistant director of Canton Woods. "It is usually a fast-paced dance program, but ours is a slower-paced program to accommodate our seniors."

All area seniors are welcome to participate in the program, even if they do not regularly come to Canton Woods. The cost is $5 per class payable directly to Pomeroy.

Canton Woods Senior Center is located at 76 Canton St. in the village of Baldwinsville. For more information, call 638-4536.
