St. Theresa Students "Zumba for Haiti"

St. Theresa students try out some of the different Zumba moves that instructor Lori Mitchell shows them while raising money for Haiti.

March 21, 2010 - Students from St. Theresa Catholic Elementary School had the opportunity to try something new and exciting on Wednesday, March 10, 2010. All of the classes had a chance to experience the exciting new exercise called Zumba which is a Latin inspired fitness class with a hip-hop flavour. The students had been trying to figure out something different for them to do to raise money for the people of Haiti and the idea of bringing in donations of any amount for a chance to try Zumba was the one idea that everyone agreed was the best. Zumba instructor Lori Mitchell from Lori Mitchell Fitness visited the school and had all of the classes join her in the gym to try some of the different Zumba moves. Maria DeMarco, Principal of the school enjoyed watching the students take part in the classes as well as trying out the moves herself. “It is a great way for the kids to get their daily physical activity.” said DeMarco. “As well, the school is able to promote physical fitness while supporting a really great cause like Haiti!”
