Zumba with Dessy
Our Southampton volunteers ran their first event which was a Zumba class for all dance lovers.
On Saturday 21 January the Southampton Development Group of Dreams Come True ran their first event, a Zumba class for all dance lovers. The event took place in the morning and aimed to give all attendees a fresh and positive start to the day while supporting a great cause.
The class was attended by approximately 20 people of all ages with a mix of Zumba experience. Attendees were dancing on 10 songs all in a different style such as salsa, cha-cha-cha, flamenco, hip-hop, reggaeton, and more. The Sports Hall in St Mary's Leisure Centre, the location of the class, was full with laughter, smiles and desire to dance and help towards fulfilling young people' most sincere dreams.
This Zumba event received a number of positive comments and willingness from the attendees to attend another dance class in the near future. Some of the thoughts people shared were:
"Fun, happiness and love. Keep up the good work!"
"Thank you! It was amazing"
"We had a really good time. Thank you!"
"Amazing class for an especially amazing cause. Would do it all over"
"Thank you! So much fun and a great workout"
Together we managed to raise £170 as the donations will be split in half for Dreams Come True and another organisation called Solent in the Community which aims to enable groups, individuals or clubs to deliver programmes of sport or physical activity that benefit the population of Hampshire.
The Southampton Development Group are very happy and pleased with the outcomes of their first event and feel motivated and encouraged to run other successful events for the future in order to make more dreams come true.
