When I hear the word Jazzercise, for some reason Richard Simmons’ Sweatin’ to the Oldies workouts from the ‘80s come to mind. Jazzercise is not antiquated and is no joke! The Woodlands Township Jazzercise is a modern, pulse-pounding, beat-pumping fitness program that gets results! This high-intensity dance workout mixes modern moves with strength training. Set to Top 40 music, Jazzercise targets the three major muscle groups for a full body workout. This program is held at The Recreation Center at Rob Fleming Park Monday through Thursday, and Saturdays. Register online or by calling 281-516-7348.
We all know GenuWine Tasting Room as a hot spot for enjoying wine and live music. This week on Wednesday, May 1 from 6:30 p.m to 8:30 p.m. GenuWine is hosting something different: a wine and art event. Try rare wine and create a one-of-a-kind mandala on a ceramic plate. Yulia Drozdova, a renowned artist, is known for creating captivating mandala plates using a point-to-point technique. She will lead the art instruction for the evening. Seats are limited.
