“Jazzercise is so popular in Seneca that we found it necessary to open a larger facility,” local instructor Kara Ellis explained. “We are proud to have been offering classes in Seneca for 5 years now and look forward to our future here.”

“We can now offer our customers a great workout in a brand new center and expand our class offerings.”  Ellis continued, “We held our first class in January 2008 with only three students and currently have more than 50 members.”

Classes formerly held at 311 N. Main St. will now take place at the newly renovated Seneca Jazzercise Center at 258 N. Main St.

The Seneca Jazzercise current class schedule includes nine classes weekly: 8:30 a.m., Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday; 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 5:40 p.m. Monday and Wednesday.
