I can’t dance. Will I still be able to do a Zumba® class?

Yes!!  Zumba® is suitable for dancers and non-dancers alike.  Zumba creates a party-like atmosphere that provides a non-intimidating opportunity for non-dancers and new exercisers to participate in group exercise!


What should I wear?

Zumba® is a fitness class so it is advisable to wear clothes suitable for exercise.  Footwear is also important…trainers or dance shoes are recommended.  Regular Zumba® participants like to wear shoes with less grip on the sole such as Nike Shox, Nike QVida, Nike MC, Capezio dance trainers etc.


Where can I find Zumba® music?

Most of the music you hear in class has been specially mixed by Zumba®  for use by instructors. It is, however possible to find versions by the original artists online through iTunes.  On iTunes you will also be able to purchase several specially created Zumba® albums.


Are there any Zumba® DVDs?

Yes.  There are currently two or three sets of Zumba® DVDs available for purchase online on the Zumba® website.


How many calories can I burn during a Zumba® class?

The number of calories each person burns per class varies.  However, depending on your body parameters (type, composition, intensity, range of motion), you can burn hundreds of calories per class.


Do I need a dancing partner?

No.  This is a group class.


What should I bring to class?

Bring a towel and plenty of water.  There are pauses in between songs and those are good moments for you to get hydrated.
