BORP relaunches popular Dance to the Beats class on April 9

It was only a five-session class but get ready as BORP is pleased to announce the return of this class every week starting on Tues., April 9th from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

This class introduces easy-to-follow choreography from a seated position done to Latin & World music. JanpiStar uses a wheelchair so the moves will be geared towards upper body and core strengthening, yet is open to anyone that wants to move to a beat. No experience is necessary.

The class is held at the BORP Fitness Studio located at the Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline St., suite 150, Berkeley.  The cost is $11 per class, and for seniors 55 and older & veterans, $8 per class.
