I have never been to the sale but I know they are doing free Zumba classes. And the instructor is awesome - she is opening her own studio near me (out in Advance) so I'm a little biased. But really, she's super energetic and fun...I highly recommend her.

(Will be meeting friends for dual birthday/wedding anniversary dinner downtown that night - otherwise I'd be there.)
