FAQ About Zumba

Zumba is the recent dance exercise class that’s taking over the world.

With various dance steps from meringue & salsa to bollywood & belly dancing they are blended together into a lesson with a wonderful party atmosphere.

Zumba was originated by Beto Perez from South America who one day forgot the music for his aerobics class. All he had was a variety of music CDs from his car. With that mixed bag of music the class he instructed proved to be very well received & the rest is history.

It was discovered that countless students were intimidated by the usual stategy of teaching a work out lesson. So in comparison all Zumba classes are performed with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the trainer to perform the steps right.

The girls in the class just follow the routines the coach is making but if they cannot or do not desire to do that move, all they must do is to do their own thing, keep moving & to have fun fun fun!

Zumba is awesome for people over the age of 16 and is great for all groups of fitness and experience. But for dancers younger than that there’s Zumbatomic. There is no dress code (Spandex is NOT mandatory!).

Just use what you feel comfortable in but also remember you will be very hot! The best shoes to use are those that will assist your foot support (similiar to an aerobic type shoe). It’s best not to bring a shoe that has too much traction as this can enhance work on your knees.

People are asked to bring a towel & a water bottle along with them because they will get very hot! There is a stop between each dance allowing every body to take a quick shot of water before the dance goes on.

With Zumba lessons popping up everywhere,neighborhoods are slowly starting to rock as if struck by an earthquake, as people shimmy, shake & move to the awesome Latin music that is Zumba Fitness.

Zumba is addictive with many people having to go to four or 5 lessons per week because they appreciate the system SO much.

In an average 1 hour long lesson, you will melt between 500 – six-hundred calories but can lose as many as 800 if you pull all of the stops out.
