FANCY dancing yourself thin while raising money for a vital cause?

This Saturday (Oct 20) from 5-7pm, Petra Bonich is hosting a ZUMBA charity master class to raise funds for the Renal Unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Join Petra for two hours of party fitness at the Arts Centre in Great Dunmow as you dance your way to fitness, have a blast and do your bit for charity. This Zumba event will be ideal for beginners with a wide variety of dance from Salsa to Cha Cha, and Hip hop to Bollywood. Entry is £10.

And if that isn’t enough, flying in from is Tereza Zalesakova – she was last seen in England when she joined with Petra at The West End Live Show, where and audience of more than 15,000 watched them perform.

The class is part of the Renal Transplant Games where children who have received a kidney transplant can form team, and participate in the National Transplant Games – held over a weekend in the summer.

Petra said: “It is a fabulous sporting opportunity for them & they feel like any other child. Indeed some participants go on and represent us at the World Transplant games.”

Petra has four Zumba classes at the Arts Centre as well as others in the area. To find out more visit petrabonich.zumba.com/classes; call 07884336614 or e-mail bonich.p@tiscali.co.uk.
