Leading global dance fitness company Jazzercise, Inc. announced a new initiative for 2017 that supports the growth and development of young women by offering free classes to girls aged 16-21. Dubbed GirlForce, the program aims to empower young women by giving them a place to get fit, learn healthy habits, and find a place they belong in their communities.

Set to launch in January 2017, participating Jazzercise locations will encourage teens and college-aged women to join the movement and learn to “dance their own path.”

The classes are offered at the North Bellevue C0mmunity Center, 4063 148th Ave. NE

Monday and Wednesday 5:45-6:45 p.m.

Tuesday and Thursday 4:30-5:30 p.m.
