Zumba zooms to Altamont

By Jo E. Prout

ALTAMONT — Anne Linendoll loves Zumba so much, she’s brought it to Altamont. A Zumba instructor in Guilderland and in Schenectady, Linendoll wants to share the latest exercise craze with local residents.

“People told me they didn’t want to leave the village, so I’m bringing it to Altamont and I’m hoping they mean it,” she said. “It’s a really fun exercise.”

Zumba is practiced in 70 countries, she said, and it is based on many ethnic dances, including salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton. The exercise uses exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves, she said, and classes are known for their party-like atmosphere.

While several people in the area are certified to teach Zumba, Linendoll is the only one who teaches Zumba Gold, a class for seniors or people unaccustomed to exercise.

Classes begin on Jan. 18 at St. John’s Lutheran Church at 142 Maple Ave. in Altamont. Zumba Gold will be held from 6 to 6:50 p.m. and Zumba will be held from 7 to 8 p.m.

The 50-minute classes are $7 for drop-ins, $30 for six classes, and $50 for 10.

To pre-register or for additional information, call Anne Linendoll at 861-6847 or e-mail altamontzumba@verizon.net.
