It is a combination of Latin and international dance music combined with aerobic moves, and is changing the way many people view exercise. You spend an hour and you don’t realize that you are exercising. It is a mix of easy to follow dance steps and rhythms that provide a complete workout. It is just fun fun fun, what else can I say?? In fact you don’t need to have a dancing background, and still benefit from Zumba.

Based on interval training, it combines fast high-energy moves and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body. You burn calories without knowing it. Zumba is the perfect solution for controlling stress for all ages. If you hate to exercise but love to dance, Zumba is for you.
