Party Hearty Zumbathon on April 30 to benefit American Heart Assn. – San Jose fitness |

You’ll feel like you’ve ditched the workout and joined the party when you “Party Your Heart Out” at the Party Hearty Zumbathon, April 30, 2011 fundraiser benefiting the American Heart Association.  The 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. event is being held at Cheryl Burke Dance in Mountain View.  The Silicon Valley event is one of a number of Party Hearty events being held nationally.

The organizers promise “two hours of shaking it with your fabulous peeps!” and given the high-spirited fun of the local Zumba community that’s easy to believe.  Plus there is a giant floor, lots of mirrors (better to check yourself out), nightclub lighting and prizes and giveaways.  All this for a $10 entry fee.

If you’ve ever taken Zumba locally, check out this who’s who that of people who will be at the event:

  • Roger Yamat, Zumba Instructor and former ZES
  • Alena Groopman, Zumba Jammer
  • Efren Buzzo, Zumba Jammer
  • Annamarie Flores, Zumba Instructor
  • Bonnie Sarmiento, Zumba Instructor
  • Heidi Hirahara, Zumba Instructor
  • Joyful Mathieson, Zumba Instructor

Given the enthsuaism of the local Zumba community, the organizers are likely correct when they say, “Buy your tickets early.”  This event could sell out early. Please note that tickets can only be purchased at
