Dance-A-Thon to benefit flood victims

First Posted: 3/21/2012

The public is invited to shake it up for a great cause at the Hips for Hope Dance-a-thon March 31 from 2 – 5 p.m. at Keystone College in La Plume.

For only $10, you can dance all afternoon and help victims of last year’s flooding in Wyoming County. Zumba Fitness®, Ballroom and Line Dance will each run continuously through the event so participants can try all three if desired. No partners necessary.

Jill Wetzel will instruct ballroom enthusiasts in the basic steps to each song. Line dancers will be led by Rosemary Lubinski in songs such as “Tush Push” and “Mama Mia.” Zumba Fitness® instructors Kelly Hilsey, Joyce Jennings and Maritza Acevedo will each take a turn at leading participants in this calorie-burning fitness phenomenon.

A raffle will also be held, with prizes from Shabby Shek Salon, Majestic II Salon, Twig’s Cafe, Comfort Inn and DGK insurance.

Registration begins at 1 p.m. Minimum age for participation is 14. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent.
