JOINING FORCES, the New Providence Community Centre (NPCC) and Club One Fitness Centre staged a fitness event Saturday to help create awareness for diabetes.
“Move and Groove: Dance for Diabetes” gathered over eighty adults and children, who exercised and learned important facts about diabetes.
Dr Graham Cates, organisers and member of the health and wellness ministry at NPCC, said dancing is a great way to get in shape, have fun and meet other people. “In fact people had such a great time that they didn’t want to leave. Many wanted us to do it again next week,” he told Tribune Health.
As the day went on, the event included a Zumba Hip Hop session with Lorrinda Maura of Yodephy, Salsa with Ellen Key, Street Jazz with Jennifer Roach of the Kaleidoscope Dance Cooperative, a Fitness Party with Dianne Gibson of Club One and a Soca session with Junkanoo Comby of Club One.
Local recording artist Julien Thompson and the Juice Unit dancers also played a part in the entertainment for the day
