Zumba enthusiasts have an opportunity to not only dance nonstop for two hours but also support a cause.

Instructors from across East Texas and the state will unite to raise money to battle cancer from 2 to 4 p.m. March 1 at Coach’s & Cowboy’s, 8374 Paluxy Drive in Tyler.

Move to the Beat to Beat Cancer will feature music by DJ CP from Inkredible Sounds.

Tickets cost $20 and 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Smith County.

Tickets and T-shirts can be purchased at www.danceforcancer.eventbrite.com .

Last year, Zumba instructors came together to raise more than $2,000 for the victims of the devastating tornado in Moore, Okla.
