Sing and Dance This Weekend

If weight loss and good health aren't enough to inspire you to workout, maybe charitable giving will get you moving. On Saturday afternoon from 3 to 6 p.m., dance instructor Carolyn Maragno will lead a Zumbathon for Bridges at the Rumba Room on South Main. Zumba is a dance workout that combines Latin dance with hip-hop and even a little belly dancing. So get off your butt and help Bridges, a local nonprofit that helps youth fight racism, poverty, and educational challenges.

You want your kid to grow up to be the next Lil Rounds? Well, Opera Memphis can't help you there. But they can teach your offspring to sing opera. During the Summer Opera Conservatory, students learn the process of opera from audition to production. The program is open to students ages 8 to 20, but they must first pass an audition tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. or Saturday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. Auditions are held at the Clark Memphis Opera Center.

If you've lost your job due to the recession, there’s still hope for finding a new path. The Cordova Branch Library is offering a free two-part "Spring Out of Recession" program on Saturday. Round one begins at 1:30 p.m. and gives participants hints on how to find another job. The second half begins at 3:30 p.m. and offers job-interviewing tips.

Ladies, ditch your male partners this weekend for a girl’s day out at the Southern Women's Show. The annual expo features sales of women’s clothing and gifts, makeover demonstrations, cooking tips, and more. The expo runs through Sunday at the Agricenter.
