Over the last twenty years I've a done a wide range of aerobics and dance classes but Zumba is totally different in the way it combines Latin music with dancing and fitness.
Over the last six years I've spent a lot of time Salsa dancing and have learned to love Latin based music which also forms the basis for Zumba.
I help teach salsa classes in New Mill on Sunday evenings and thoroughly enjoy the interaction with those who attend. Many people are often dragged in by a partner and so start off quite nervous but they quickly gain confidence. After a few weeks they can actually dance and I take great pride in that and feel a great sense of achievement having helped them on the way to becoming dancers.
Zumba always fills me with energy and gives me a real high, as soon as I hear the music I just want to wiggle those hips! It has certainly given me a huge confidence boost and taken me way out of my comfort zone. I often get up on the stage at the different Zumba venues to demo some of the routines – something I never thought I would be able to do. I can honestly recommend Zumba to anyone who wants to keep fit and have fun at the same time, something made a lot easier by the great team that we have.
Hope to see you at a Zumba class soon!
