Heritage Woods of Chicago, a BMA affordable assisted living community on Chicago's west side, is offering a Zumba class at 3 p.m. on the third Friday of the month, starting May 17.
The community, which is located at 2800 W. Fulton in Chicago, Illinois, serves low-income older adults, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
"Zumba is a dance exercise program that is designed to burn calories by combining Latin and international music with some simple and easy-to-learn dance steps," says Cindy Gladney, Director of Marketing for Heritage Woods of Chicago. "The program will be led by a dance instructor, who will have you moving, rockin' and shakin', so come and join us."
The Zumba dance class is open to the public. There is no cost to attend.

"We provide older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Gladney. "Residents benefit from living in their own private apartment and receiving personal assistance and help with medications."
Certified nursing assistants are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All three meals each day, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.
"Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in social activities and wellness programs such as the Zumba class," says Gladney.
