Our next #HumansoftheY story comes from Glenn at the Wheeler YMCA, who visits our facility several times a week to get his groove on! Check out his moves, and hear how he learned them:
“As an ROTC Cadet at Syracuse University, we were required to take a semester of ballroom dancing. Because I had always enjoyed dancing and because tuition covered the cost, I took it all four years, eventually serving on the Men’s Dance Line and then the Co-ed Dance Line that performed at athletic events and other festive occasions. I became especially adept at the Latin dances such as the Cha Cha, Rumba, Mambo, and Samba.
"When I joined the Wheeler YMCA four years ago and saw that they these dances were heavily incorporated in Zumba movements, and I enthusiastically joined the Zumba classes. The rest is history!”
