Do I need to know how to dance?
It is not necessary to have any dance experience in fact most Zumba class participants don’t. Zumba is not really a dance class rather a dance- fitness class. There will be dance movements in the workout but no dance experience is needed, just the willingness to try something new! The main thing is to just have fun and keep moving - as long as you’re doing that then you’ll be getting a great workout!
What if I can’t follow the steps at first?
The great thing about Zumba is there are very few rules; just dance a little, laugh a little and sweat a lot, and just keep moving. As long as you are moving you are working. Just have fun with this class. You’ll soon learn that exercise really can BE FUN! Each time you come you’ll get more familiar with the movements, and with practice you will soon see how quickly you will master the routines!
What should I wear or bring to class?
Wear light-weight, loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to move in. You must wear shoes (no bare feet or socks) Also no street shoes (heels, sandals). Dance/aerobic shoes with a smooth/flat bottom are preferred for easy pivoting. Running shoes/trainers are okay, however some have a lot of tread that prevent you from turning with ease. Look out for shoes that provide shock asborbency and cushioning for impact, as this will help prevent stress on joints. Please also bring along a bottle of water!
I haven’t exercised in a while, will I be able to keep up?
Remember to go at your own pace. The class is structured so that beginner and more advanced level students can work at the same time. Everyone in the class is coming from different fitness and health backgrounds. You only need to be concerned with yourself and your abilities and health. If you do have any medical conditions, injuries or if you are taking any medications that effect your heart, please seek advice from your doctor prior to participating.
