You’ve seen the commercials. It’s all over YouTube. Everyone’s doing it.

Now it’s at Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC).

Beginning today, Tuesday, Oct 16, BRCC faculty and staff will have the opportunity to take free Zumba classes, taught by current BRCC student Cammila Foreman.

Foreman, a 2nd-semester nursing student, is happy about her new endeavor.

“I’m excited about teaching Zumba classes at BRCC. I love BRCC as a student, and I’m looking forward to my experience as an instructor,” she said in a recent interview.

Foreman is no stranger to Zumba. She is a certified Zumba instructor, and currently teaches Zumba classes for the Live After Five YMCA Outdoor Fitness Series. She also teaches at Pards and Z Time Fun Fitness, in addition to teaching private lessons.

With such a busy schedule, you would be surprised to learn that Foreman has a 3.7 GPA, and is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa and Sigma Kappa Delta (English) honor societies at BRCC.

When asked how she is able to maintain her grades, with everything that she is involved in, she said that she applies the same philosophy to her studies that she does with Zumba.

“You work hard and study, and the end result is good grades. And Zumba is no different. You exercise and work hard, and eventually, you have the body that you’ve always wanted,” said Foreman.

BRCC plans to continue the classes beyond the month of October, possibly as a permanent exercise program for faculty and staff.

Zumba Schedule:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 16, 5:20 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 23, 5:20 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Oct. 30, 5:20 p.m.

All classes will be held in the Bonne Santé Wellness Center Dance Studio.
