What to expect in your first Zumba® class

Not everyone likes a surprise.  If you are getting ready to visit a class for the first time, here are a few things that might put you at ease.

So, you think you can't dance?  This is dance, but it is also fitness. The choreography is for regular people, yet it's not an old school aerobics class. You are coming to an international fitness dance party and rarely does anyone master the choreography the first try! Simply start with the feet and you can gradually add arms and hips as you get more comfortable and learn the moves.  

The music drives the movement.  When parts of a song repeat, the movements will also repeat.  In some cases, your body will even learn the steps before your brain.  I don't change an entire playlist at once, so you will have a chance to learn the songs and make them your own before you know it.  You might even surprise yourself and let go.

Don't stop the party.  Unlike traditional group exercise, the cues are primarily non-verbal.  Instead of calling out directions, motions and body language will let you know what's next.  It's a great way maintain the party-like atmosphere without competing with the music. Miss a cue? No worries!  Unexpected solos are welcome.

This is your workout.  You know your body and your fitness goals better than anyone else.  I will show you modifications to accommodate your needs.  Whether your goal is to get fit or simply dance away stress, Zumba® Fitness is the perfect workout.  You can make it higher or lower intensity and even layer in fitness moves to take it to a whole different level.  

Nobody's peeking.  At the party, no two people dance the same. Every person brings their own style to a Zumba® class!  This should be a happy place where we leave judgement in the car.  Especially self-judgement.

What to wear?  Comfy athletic clothes are perfect.  Sweats, leggings, shorts, tanks & tees.  Cross-training shoes are preferred for lateral support, but any athletic shoe will do.  This ain't no fashion show!

You will have fun.  And make friends, And reach your fitness goals. And smile. A lot. What could be better than that?
