Zumba class to benefit child suffering from Angelman Syndrome

Tribune staff report

A special Zumba class fundraiser will be held Wednesday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m.

This class will be taught by visiting teacher Cyndee Yonker Orcutt, who danced and taught on the South Shore for many years. She has been a certified Zumba teacher since 2004, having taught in Wisconsin and currently in Idaho.

The class is called Zumba Angels and will benefit Orcutt’s daughter Zoe, who was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome at 9 months old. Angelman children are characterized by their smiles and happy temperaments while they are afflicted with severe developmental delays, speech difficulties, seizure disorders and more.

Zumba Angels will be held at the Marcia Sarosik Dance Studio, 2107 James Ave.

Local Zumba instructor Alejandra Quirate is encouraging her students to attend and support the event. There is no charge for the class, but donations for the Angelman Syndrome Foundation will be accepted.
