ZUMBA Session 4


with Robin Lovell, Wells-Ogunquit Adult Community Education

Calendar Apr 24, 2024 at 6:15 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Robin's Zumba® classes have been running strong for over 13 years through the Wells Ogunquit Adult Ed. Zumba® is dance exercise for people who don't consider themselves dancers but love to dance. The hour flies by and you will get a great workout. Robin uses fun, high energy music and the moves are basic and repeated enough times so that you really know them. Plus one of the best things about Zumba® is the emphasis on modifying the moves to make them your own.  Questions about the class? Contact Robin via her Zumba website (Robin Lovell - Instructor Page (, or Wells-Ogunquit Adult Ed.

A knowledge of basic line dance steps is helpful, but some dancing proficiency and sense of rhythm should be sufficient.
