Newly created art parks in Atlantic City will be the sites for free fitness classes and theatrical performances on Friday that will continue for 13 weeks.

Dubbed "Mind, Body & Soul ARTLANTIC," the programming is sponsored by the Atlantic City Alliance and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. Arts organizations, performers and fitness experts will lead the performances and demonstrations at the sites.

The park located at California Avenue on the Boardwalk will host morning fitness classes including Zumba and Sunrise PiYo. Interactive performances will take place at the site in the evenings.

The park at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Pacific Avenue will host nightly musical performances by groups including the Atlantic City Ballet and the Bay Atlantic Symphony.

Both sites will host performances from ComedySportz, an improv comedy troupe, children's musical productions by the Greater Ocean City Theater Company, and Bardwalk and Shakespeare in the Parks presented by The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, XYXeee and Dante Hall Theater.
