Zumba Gold targets the largest growing segment of the population: baby boomers. It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active old participant as well as those just starting their journey to fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements Zumba is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement and fitness as a regular part of the their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun.

Trinidad Recreation Center is owned and operated by the DC Department of Parks and Recreation. It is located at the corner of Childress and Holbrook Streets NE, in the Trinidad neighborhood. The recreation center, which was built to LEED certification standards in 2009, has an indoor gymnasium, a multi-purpose room, a weight room, an arcade/game room, a computer room, and an arts and crafts room.
The Friends of Trinidad Recreation Center is a committee of the Trinidad Neighborhood Association, and is organized by neighbors to identify both the needs and resources to support the community recreation center. Since the city’s recreation budget is not adequate to address the needs of this neighborhood asset, the Friends of Trinidad was formed to bridge the gap.
The Friends of Trinidad maintains a formal partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation in order to facilitate the improvement and beautification of the recreation center. We are the voice of the neighborhood.
The Friends of Trinidad Recreation Center aims to:
Bolster programming for all members of the community, from young children to seniors, by leading classes and recruiting volunteer instructors, by organizing special programs and events, and by working with DPR staff to ensure a full roster of programming options.
Beautify the building and grounds so that Trinidad Recreation Center is nice place to be, with regular clean-up days, gardening events, and anti-littering programs.
Engage community partners to bring our neighbors and local businesses and organizations together for the betterment of the recreation center.
Raise funds to provide equipment for programs and classes so that there is no barrier to participation, and to host community events at the recreation center for the enjoyment of all our neighbors.
