Get out your favorite workout wear and dancing shoes and be prepared for an entertaining, energizing and calorie burning experience at Miami’s largest free Fitness Dance Party on Saturday, July 25, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Tropical Park Equestrian Complex. The inaugural event is part of the celebrations for Miami-Dade’s Park and Recreation Month and is being presented by the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department and the Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade and sponsored by Baptist Health South Florida. Residents of all ages and skill levels will find it easy to move their feet to the beat with energetic dance rhythms set by music-spinning DJs and easy-to-follow dance exercises led by professional Zumba instructors. Hundreds are expected to descend on the Complex for a morning of exhilarating fun. Admission and parking are free.

Traditionally a site for world-class equestrian events, the shade-covered Complex features more than 150,000 square feet of floor space and overhead fans, providing event-goers with plenty of room and cooling breezes while they get their heart-healthy dance moves on.

As a warm-up prelude to this ultimate fitness event, Miami-Dade Parks is hosting a free “Super Senior” Active Adults Fitness Dance Party for ages 55+ on July 22, 11:00 a.m., at the Arcola Lakes Senior Center.
