Shimmy Chic Fitness Demo at Ciclovia!

I will be teaching a 20-minute Shimmy Chic Fitness class demonstration at the Ciclovia event on March 24 and need your help! I am looking for participants. It is absolutely free and will not take longer than 20 minutes. Since it is a demonstration, I will ask that you briefly warm up on your own before we begin. I will teach 3 to 4 routines on the spot and then we're done! The routines feature basic, beginning-level belly dance moves which are repeated throughout the songs. I will go over the basic moves beforehand, then start the music and call out the cues. All you have to do is follow along, and have fun! 

The Details:
What: Pensacola Ciclovia Open Streets
Ciclovia (seek-low-via)-Penscola Open Streets originated in Bogota, Columbia in the 1970s and took off around the world in the 1990s. Pensacola joined the movement in 2017 with their very first Ciclovia! This event closes major streets in downtown Pensacola to motorized traffic and opens them up for people to ride bikes, walk, run, play, or whatever moves them! Check out more info here:
When: Saturday, March 24 at 11;45 AM. Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in.
Where: Downtown Pensacola. The Shimmy Chic Fitness Demo will take place in the Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis, & Overholtz parking lot at the corner of Main Street and Jefferson Street. I will also have a table set up at this area; look for the Shimmy Chic banner.
Other Details: The area where we will be dancing is paved. So wear some sort of dance sneaker or shoe that will protect your feet, yet allow you to pivot reasonably well. Wear your workout wear with a colorful coin hip scarf. If you need one, I can loan you one of mine, or I have brand new ones you can purchase for $10/scarf. If you have a Shimmy Chic top or Tshirt, please wear it! I have limited Shimmy Chic merchandise for sale; contact me if interested. Prices range from $10 to $25.

This will be a fun day for all kinds of exercise, fun, and fresh spring air! If you are able to participate, please email me at or text me at 770-361-7341. Yalla!! :-D
