How It Works: We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

Adult Dance

Ages 18+ / Thursdays / $10/class / 7-9 p.m.

Mark Cohen started teaching Ballroom Dancing in Tampa Florida in the 1980s with Fred Astaire Dance Studio and received his certification to teach with National Dance Board Director Cher Rutherford and Linda Dean. Several years later he went to work for Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Tamp and we certified by World Dance Champions Wilson Barrera and Margret Burns. After moving back to Ohio, Mark opened Simply Dancing Dance Studio in 1999 and retained his certifications and also learned and started teaching the nation's most recognized dance syllabus - Dvida - which is recognized by the National Dance Council of America.

The Rumba began with African Slaves of Cuba more than 400 years ago, dancing an exotic pantomime under the spell of elemental music. Since its introduction to the USA in the early 30s, the social Rumba has been a favorite, characterized by smooth and subtle hip motion, and rather heavy walking steps. Of the three styles of Rumba introduced to the USA - the Son-Rumba, or Rumba; the Bolero- Rumba, or Bolero and the Guaracha-Rumba, only the two former maintained popularity. The latter faded from vogue in the 40s with the introduction of the Mambo.

The Eastern Swing, originally called the Lindy Hop, was born in the South of the USA and is the most famous American folk dance. The best forms having included the Charleston, Black Bottom, Shag and Lindy Hop. In the early 40s these dances consolidated into what was called the Lindy. The Lindy was first danced as a modified box step, with a slight shuffling movement, not unlike the Single rhythm in today's swing. This evolved into Double and Triple rhythms, and today all three form the basis of good swing dancing. It was in Harlem of the 40s that Swing took on most of today's popular steps and styling.

West Coast Swing (WCS) is a dance with rots growing out of Lindy Hop. In the 1940s there were hundreds of regional styles of swing dancing being done across the country. Rumor has it, Dean Collins, an influential swing dancer from the east coast, traveled to Hollywood to get into the movie business. While there his style of dancing helped influence what would become the West Coast Swing, even though he takes no credit. In 1988 WCS became the official state dance of California.

There has been little written as to the history of the Cha-Cha, perhaps due to its close identification with Mambo. It sprang from Cuba and the USA both, but there seems little argument over the actual origin of the dance, and who claims it. It is derived from Mambo, but takes its timing from the Swing. The tempo is slow and staccato, much like a sensational blues number. Because of this and it's "on-the- beat" feeling it is very much a real "let-yourself- go" dance.
