NEW ORLEANS (press release) – The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel is bringing back its popular rooftop workout series in collaboration with Footprints To Fitness. The Sunset Soiree fitness series features a mix of yoga, Pilates and other exercises and are offered on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. on May 23, June 6 and June 20.  The Sunset Soiree exercise classes are available for both locals and guests atop The Roosevelt New Orleans’ rooftop pool deck overlooking beautiful views of the Crescent City.

A portion of the proceeds from the classes will go to the Footprints Foundation, which partners with other local organizations to provide underserved New Orleans area communities with high-quality CPR/First Aid and fitness programming.

“We look forward to the Sunset Soiree classes every year,” said Tod Chambers, general manager, The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel. “We love welcoming friends — new and old — to our hotel and supporting the wellness needs of the New Orleans community.”

“We are excited to partner with The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel again for this series,” said April Dupre, wellness coach and founder, Footprints To Fitness. “It’s a spectacular setting for our classes, to not only encourage our students on their own health and fitness journeys but also to raise funds for our foundation which brings critically needed health and wellness programming to people who might otherwise not be able to afford it.”

Ahead of class and available post-workout, participants can place orders from The Roosevelt New Orleans’ menu, featuring healthy treats and small indulgences from Executive Chef Jason Schneider. Options will include blue crab & avocado toast, fried shrimp & green tomatoes, Caesar salad, French Market salad, an Angus cheddar burger and a Beyond vegan burger.
