Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high energy Latin and international beats. All you have to do is copy the easy dance moves to the rhythmic music of salsa, merengue, bachatta, reggeton, rock, etc. Before you know it, you will be getting fit, burning calories, and your energy levels will be soaring, and it is easy to do, effective, and totally exhilarating.
Zumba is for everyone no matter what your age, size, or fitness levels, and the bonus is you do not require a dance partner. You do not even have to be a dancer; all you require is plenty of water to drink and be prepared to let yourself relax and enjoy.
Diane Brady says: “I have been teaching zumba for over three years and it gives me great joy and pride when I see that everyone is enjoying themselves and the great progress they make with all the Latin moves, etc. Zumba is not a fad, it has been successful worldwide for over 11 years. I started here in Westport/Castlebar three years ago and the class numbers remain good. The most popular feedback I get is that they have a good work out and thoroughly enjoy themselves. My philosophy is it is good for the mind, body, and soul.”
