Celebrating culture, heritage and diversity bioRithm hosted a Zumba morning at Ned Doman High School this Heritage Day on Saturday 24 September.

Ninety minutes of exhilarating fun, sharing the dance floor with a diverse group of Zumba instructors, had those working up a sweat before a few of them proceeded to braai later on Heritage Day.

BioRithm founder and owner Rukaya Galant, wanted the community to share her passion for fitness and desire to live a healthier, more active lifestyle through Zumba. Describing the humble beginnings of BioRithm back in 2009 and having only two members in her class, Galant defines Zumba as her natural anti-depressant in a time where exercise was deemed taboo and chronic illness lurking in her family background. Since 2009 BioRithm has achieved many triumphs with an average of 80 students per class to now having five instructors as well as six supporting Zumba instructors.

BioRithm’s mission is to provide an entertaining, fun and energetic fitness experience using Zumba as a platform.

Galant explains: “Through a health and fitness practice suitable for all we are passionate about Zumba and strive to share this life changing experience by making it accessible to all.”

Zumba is a fitness program that developed in Columbia that encourages individuals to lead a healthier lifestyle through a combination of dance and aerobic movements.

“Zumba is a ‘universal dance language’ that unites fitness fanatics all over the globe and combines many dance cultures in one. The bioRithm “Dance to the heritage heartbeat” party saw individuals from all walks of life enjoy a morning of fitness, fun and dance, celebrating South African heritage and culture,” explains Galant.

Galant adds that the Heritage Day celebration was a great way to enjoy exercise while having fun. The “diversity at its best” party turned out to be an adrenaline charged event highlighting the diverse cultures of the Cape Town community coming together in dance.

BioRithm has weekly Zumba Classes at Ned Doman High School, St. Athans Road on a Monday and Wednesday at 18:30 and Saturday at 09:00.
