A man led a free socially-distanced outdoor Zumba class for his neighbours in Mont-St-Hilaire.\nThe whole street took part.\nThis is the kind of energy we need right now.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nIn order to motivate his neighbours and help them stay active in this time of containment, a Mont-Saint-Hilaire resident recently organized an outdoor group training session. A video of the class shows the entire neighbourhood out in the street exercising while maintaining appropriate distance from each other. It's exactly the kind of energy the world needs right now.\nJean Hébert, who has worked as a Zumba teacher for several years, took the initiative to offer a free class to the residents of rue des Sittelles on Saturday, April 4, at around 1:00 p.m.\nUsing a trailer as a stage and setting up speakers to blast music, Jean set fire to the neighbourhood as everyone participated in the project with great enthusiasm.\nOn his profile available on zumba.com, Hébert explains, "I love offering Zumba classes. The reason is simple: each session is like a big party!"\nThe video, published by his neighbour Mireille Bourgeois, shows a party, indeed.\nUnfortunately for the dedicated coach, it was the first and last such event to take place on Sittelles, as Mireille says: "The police came [because of] the noise, [the] complaints [came] from the other streets."\nThe neighbourhood has obtained the necessary permission from the city, however.\nIts official Facebook account even promoted the event.\nIn fact, not everyone seems to agree with the complaints.\nComments in support of the event abound under the original Facebook post.\n"It was a great idea and you were all well distanced from each other, too bad the police came to stop it. It must have been good for the morale of your neighbours," wrote one commenter.\nUne séance de zumba gratuite ce soir, ça vous dit?\nOn finit le Mois Défi Santé en force avec Jean Hébert!Posted by Ville de Mont-Saint-Hilaire on Tuesday, April 30, 2019\nIf John's energy made you want to take up Zumba, he should certainly be back in action when the confinement order is lifted.\nMireille Bourgeois | Facebook\nUntil then, you'll have to be patient and make do with the few videos available on YouTube to motivate yourself.\nThis article was originally published in French on Narcity Québec.
