Get Lucky with Zumba & Win €45 class credit

We’re always up for a festive giggle @ The elbowroom.  We would love if you’d join us for some craic & spraoi @ next Friday evening’s Zumba class.

Karla came up with the great idea that you should wear something green to celebrate St.Patricks Day.

We agree and think the zumbi with the most imaginative out-fit deserves €45 class credit.

So get your green thinking caps on, we look forward to seeing you on Friday 14th March @ 6.40pm with your fabulous green attire (even if it’s just your zumba lucky socks!)
