What Should I Expect in a Zumba® Class?

A Zumba® class is not a normal, everyday aerobic class.  A Zumba® class is dynamic, fun and effective, without the strain and boredom normally associated with “working out.” The music is joyful and exhilarating, and everyone is happy because they want to be there.


Each 60 minute class starts with a warm-up, proceeds through intervals of faster and slower tempos throughout the duration of the class and ends with a cool-down and stretch.


Unlike many fitness classes, the instructor will not use a microphone in a regular Zumba® class. Instead, she will use visual and hand cues to lead you through easy, simple choreography that includes a combination of dance and fitness moves plus some hip and booty shaking.
