I’ve been taking Zumba dance classes at Jubilation (where your first class is always FREE!) for years and love it. The music, moves, and community fill me up in so many ways.
The owner, Honore LaFlamme has a big heart and when I asked about using the studio for a Back on My Feet fundraiser, she didn’t hesitate to say “Sure!”!
I believe in supporting nonprofit organizations when I can b/c they do so much for our community. Besides, the idea of helping homeless people get back on their feet with a jogging program sounds empowering! —Honore LaFlamme
She’s also hosting a food drive that one of the other instructors,, Michelle Poulin organizes every Thanksgiving.
It is a great village!
There are all ages and abilities at Jubilation and all the instructors are fun and supportive! Personally, I love being part of the older culture gravitating towards that back row! There are quite a few of us boomers doing what we can, supporting each other, screaming on occasion, and welcoming new people. Did I mention that the first class is always FREE? And the schedule has options for everyone!
What’s the fundraiser about?
Lori Austin, a local social worker and student at PILL-Portsmouth Improv Learning Lab, (among other things) is leading the fundraiser with her non-imposing, yet very inspiring alias Lightening Larry!
The local event will take place on 2/24/18 and is part of Lori’s bigger fundraising plan. We’ll share more about that soon, for now I just wanted to publicly thank Honore for helping and casually mention Larry’s, I mean Lori’s Back on My Feet crowdsource project!
