Walkers get to Zumba and dance to Bollywood tunes

Kong (front, centre) and other instructors from Zumfit Bercham will be performing a Zumba routine at tomorrow’s Ipoh Starwalk 2017.

PERFORMERS from Zumfit Bercham and Yencci Dance Studio are going to spice things up a little at Ipoh Starwalk 2017 tomorrow.

As participants cool down from their 7km fun walk, instructors from Zumfit Bercham will lead a 10-minute Zumba routine to a medley of songs, its principal Janice Kong said.

That’s not all.

Yencci Dance Studio principal Irene Au said nine-year-old Angela Baby Chiew, who is a top 10 finalist in the Astro Xian Tai Yang 2016, would be performing a Latin dance while fellow finalists Nicole Chiew and Bernice Sak would jointly deliver another dance entitled “The Shine”.

“Another pupil, seven-year-old Apple Chang, will be singing for the crowd.

“She will mesmerise all present with her rendition of You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban,” said Au.

Meanwhile, personal trainer Jeremy Ng of PFC Studio will be teaching participants some exercises using resistive bands.

“Part of this includes warm-up exercises, in particular activation exercises and dynamic stretches, which are absolutely important but very often neglected.

“It is not a waste of time and absolutely necessary. We should spend a bit of time to warm up our joints and muscles to prevent injuries,” Ng added.

Ipoh Starwalk will be flagged off at 7am at the Perak Turf Club on Jalan Raja DiHilir tomorrow.

The walk is organised by Star Media Group in collaboration with Ipoh City Council, Perak Education Department and Perak Athletic Association.

The Platinum sponsor for the walk is YES while the Silver sponsors are Julie’s, Counterpain, F&N, Federal Oats, Sports Toto, Sanctband, Chek Hup and Spritzer.

The Perak Turf Club is the official venue provider and Weil Hotel is the official hotel.
