Project Coordinator Barb Daly said, “After I completed the Centacare Evolve Housing’s Neighbourhood Leadership program, I was given the chance to come up with an idea for a project for the community. This is just one of the fantastic ideas that was presented and here I am six months later making it a reality.”

Barb hopes the project will help community members struggling with isolation, depression and mental health, to help build and maintain relationships, mental wellbeing and self confidence in a fun, safe and supportive environment. “My hope is with enough community involvement I can continue to build this project and have classes of all ranges,” she said.

Barb has already applied for a Community grant for some Spring/Summer classes. For more information on the free classes you can follow the group on Facebook at Brighton Zumba Classes.
