Go wild with ‘Zoomba’


Special to the Altus Times



The Southern Prairie Library System is hosting a “Zoomba” presentation from the Oklahoma City Zoo. This program concludes the 2016 Summer Library Reading Program, “Get Ready, Get Set…Read” and is scheduled 2-3 p.m. Thursday in the west side of the Altus Community Center, 401 Falcon Road in Altus.

Move, dance, swing, and sweat like wild friends do in the zoo.

Do elephants really stomp? Do caterpillars crawl? Do gorillas dance? Whether they slither, soar, swim, or hop, join the Oklahoma City Zoo staff and learn the move it and groove it secrets animals use to stay healthy in this fun, music-filled workout. The program will include live animals from the zoo.

This program was made possible by a grant from the Oklahoma City Zoo FUNd for Kids. The Oklahoma Zoological Society or OZS/ZooFriends is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and was created in 1954 to support and promote the zoo and its four purposes of education, conservation, zoological research and recreation. Twice a year, OZS awards grants to schools and organizations to help defray the cost of Oklahoma City Zoo education classes and activities.
