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.

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!)
