Dance classes raise funds for Big Bike ride

Zumba dance classes support Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Zumba dancers can move to the rhythm of the music Thursday nights in Nanaimo while donating to a good cause.

Nanaimo fitness instructor Gina Galway is leading zumba classes with proceeds going to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

The classes are by donation and will help support the Biker Chick Big Bike team, comprised of Coastal Community Credit Union staff, which is trying to raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

The zumba dance classes, for people 13 and over, are held Thursdays, from 7:30-8:30 p.m. at the Clubhouse dance and Fitness, at 1420 Wingrove St., just off Departure Bay Road.
