The Student Recreation Wellness Center is hosting a Zumba Halloween party. This is the second year the Rec Center has hosted a Zumba Halloween party, with this year’s actually being on Halloween.
“The party is this Thursday, Oct. 31. I’m very excited and expecting it to be just as much fun, if not more, than last year’s,” said Ruthie Swedlund, group zumba instructor.
Swedlund said that she hopes these parties will continue for years to come and continue to become better.
“I can’t wait to see the turn out at the Halloween party,” said Taylor McDaniel, sophomore art major from Fort Worth. “I went to the zumba party last year, so this year my expectations for this years are even higher.”
To spice things up a bit, the Zumba party will not only include a calorie burning workout, but also fun and exciting contests with prizes.
“We’re going to have a costume contest if you come to the party dressed up, and we will be giving out prizes,” said Swedlund.
“I think the party is a good way to work out and still have fun while doing it,” said Stacy Campos, sophomore nursing major from Garland.
Swedlund said there will be various Halloween songs played such as “Thriller” and other halloween favorites.
“Last year the songs were great, they really put me in the Halloween spirit and I had a awesome time dancing to them,” McDaniel said.
Swedlund said that because the party is on Halloween this year, she hopes the turn out will be just as big as it was last year.
“It’s a hour long and going to be at 2:00 p.m. this year, so I’m hoping that it is early enough in the day that people will still come and be able to get wired up for Halloween,” said Swedlund.
The Zumba Halloween party is open to all members of the Rec Center classes. It will be held on the second floor of the Rec Center in studio one.
