    Zumba® Toning is designed for all ages and raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick), as exercise in disguise. The class combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and the same high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba® moves to create a calorie-torching, strength-training dance fitness-party. Students will learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like toning sticks to enhance rhythm and tone target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs. Zumba® Toning is a great way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.

    Weights are optional and can be purchased or rented from the class instructor. Students may also bring hand weights weighing three pounds or less. One pound sticks are available to rent or purchase from the instructor for the class, if desired. The instructor for the course will be Melanie Lombardi, a licensed Zumba® fitness instructor since October 2011. She has taught at several locations in Western Maryland including Energy Health and Fitness and Life Fitness Management, including the satellite site at the Western Maryland Health System.

  • | Schools and Education
    - Each year, college students and parents are required to file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This application is required in order to receive any federal, state and in most cases institutional grants, scholarships and student loans.

    Even though there are priority deadlines, schools continue to accept and process the FAFSA throughout the school year. Federal aid does not have a deadline until the end of the academic year. However, there are deadlines for state and institutional funds. Even with the state scholarships, there are times when additional funds are made available and late awards are made.

    “Summer is a great time for students to be using the next couple of months to search for private scholarships,” stated Cissy VanSickle, Director of Financial Aid at Garrett College. “It is important to note that one should never pay for a scholarship search, a scholarship application, or help in filling out a FAFSA.”

    The Garrett College website provides a list of helpful links for students and parents to find information on various scholarships and scholarship search engines, including http://www.studentaid.ed.gov and http://www.fastweb.com. “Even if a student is not attending Garrett College, the Financial Aid Office will be more than happy to answer general questions,” VanSickle said. “Students who will graduate in 2017 will experience some changes in federal aid and the deadlines. We will announce that information early this school year, so students and parents are aware.”

    For general questions or for more information about financial aid, contact the Garrett College Financial Aid Office at 301-387-3080 or visit http://www.garrettcollege.edu/payingforeducation/financialaid/scholarships.

    This first session of the Mountain Maryland Music Institute (MMMI) will enroll high school instrumental students who play any instrument with any level of ability.

  • - Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development will be offering Zumba® exercise fitness courses at Saint Ann's Catholic Church in Grantsville on Tuesdays, June 21 to July 19, 6-7 p.m.

    Zumba® Toning is designed for all ages and raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick), as exercise in disguise. The class combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and the same high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba® moves to create a calorie-torching, strength-training dance fitness-party. Students will learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like toning sticks to enhance rhythm and tone target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs. Zumba® Toning is a great way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.

    Weights are optional and can be purchased or rented from the class instructor. Students may also bring hand weights weighing three pounds or less. One pound sticks are available to rent or purchase from the instructor for the class, if desired. The instructor for the course will be Melanie Lombardi, a licensed Zumba® fitness instructor since October 2011. She has taught at several locations in Western Maryland including Energy Health and Fitness and Life Fitness Management, including the satellite site at the Western Maryland Health System.

    For additional information contact Terry Beachy, Program Coordinator, at 301-895-4700 or terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu. To register for this class, persons may contact Garrett College Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069.
