Power Hula, not free but definately Fun!

Next session July 15 – August 19

Thursday evenings 6:15- 7:15pm

Spring into ACTION with Power Hula

6 classes for $65 (includes one make-up session)

Unlike any other fitness class, Power Hula is a fusion of hula basics and over 40 minutes of muscle conditioning that will help you improve both your dance posture as well as your overall physical health. The use of stability balls, resistance bands, medicine balls and dumbbells, along with isolation exercises will take your dancing, and your fitness strength, to the next level! During this hour you will be inspired to groove to the energetic sounds of Polynesian techno and the pulsating rhythmic drum-beats of kahiko (ancient) chants and mele (music). Whether you’re new to hula, experienced only in a few simple dance steps, or feel as if you have no rhythm whatsoever, you are sure to get a great workout no matter what your background!

For those who want more than just an “exercise class” we can work together to build a support system and help you set a personal goal, whether it be to strengthen your hula hips, fit into your favorite pair of jeans, or lose a few pounds for that special occasion. Like many of you I too have struggled and continue to battle with my weight so I know the challenge and understand the the amount of energy required to just be marginally healthy, but in me there is an endless reservoir of compassion and I promise to be your biggest cheerleader!

Space is limited so sign up early
Maximum capacity – 15 students

Salsa at the Cove with Cuban Singer Fito Reinoso

Concerts at the Cove continues its 12th season of free outdoor concerts with the Cuban, timba and salsa stylings of Cuban-born singer-songwriter Fito Reinoso and his orchestra from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 9 at Crab Cove, 1252 McKay Ave. in West Alameda.

Fito Reinoso is the premier Cuban born sonero performing in the Bay Area. His sound includes a variety of styles from timba to the most recent urban Havana grooves to the classic son and cha-cha-cha. His dynamic personality and showmanship have led him to collaborate with some of the top musicians in Cuba and the United States.

An expanded line-up of West Alameda food vendors at the concert includes Everett & Jones Barbecue, Yumygurt Frozen Yogurt, Island Java, Crolls, Calafia Taqueria, Chow Down Special Hot Dogs, Vest Flatbread, Hula Hawaiian and Miggy Kettlekorn. Beer from Drake’s Brewing Company and wine from both Rock Wall Winery and R&B Cellars will be on sale throughout the event. No outside alcohol is allowed in the park. The Crab Cove Visitor Center, which is adjacent to the concert area, will be open until 7:30 p.m. each night during the concerts offering organized activities for families and children. Free parking is available at Crown Memorial Beach and parking lots at Santa Clara at Webster and Taylor at Webster. Free valet bicycle parking will be available from BikeAlameda at the concert site.

For those of you new to the parade this year, let us provide you with a sampling of what to expect: a seemingly endless procession of marching bands, floats, politicians, art cars, Cub Scouts on bikes, church groups, fez-wearing secret societies, gymnasts, dancers, martial-arts students, banjo pickers, hula dancers, and more. So much more that residents like to say half of the population participates in the parade while the other half lines the streets to watch.

A Memorable Event for the Entire Family!

The annual Fremont 4th of July Parade features floats and parade entries from throughout our community and the Bay Area, so you’ll likely see many familiar faces marching through the parade route. We’ve been very fortunate in past events to have dedicated teams of volunteers help in preparation of what has become one of Fremont’s signature events, and we hope to continue this tradition, with your help. We’re also planning a few surprises for 2010!
