What is Zumba?
ZUMBA® is a dance “fitness” class inspired mainly by latin music and dance movements ie salsa, rhumba, chacha, tango. But because it is taught worldwide the music and movements have been modified to cater to the wider genre eg. Rock and roll, country, hip hop, etc.
The good thing is that ALL moves are modifiable – you can Zumba your own way; there is no “right” as we all have different fitness levels and forms of expression. So long as we are moving.
Our Zumba Gold is a workout appropriate for those just beginning a fitness program, or returning to exercise, the active older adults wanting to keep their fitness levels maintained or wanting to join a dance based fun exercise class.
ZUMBA® GOLD provides an appropriate workout for those just beginning a fitness program. Feeling the music happens when one suddenly forgets they are dancing in a class and the music is the reason to move with joy.
What to Expect
Remember: anyone can do Zumba. People of all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels have all discovered this fun new way to lose weight, feel good, and look better, all while having a great time!
For your first trip to a Zumba class, wear comfortable clothes that you can move around in (and don’t mind getting a little sweaty) and comfortable shoes with sturdy support. Most participants wear typical exercise clothes: athletic pants, shorts, leggings, tank tops, t-shirts, etc. The most common type of shoes are flat-soled sneakers.
Bring a water bottle and a towel. No other equipment is required.
Try to come in a few minutes early for your first Zumba class this will give you ample time for us to get you set up in the class.
Classes are held at the Waihi Beach RSA, 8:30am every Tuesday and Saturday morning.
Tuesday’s class begins at 9:00am, however we start at 8:30 for those who want to go over new choreography or practice dance steps – highly recommended. The RSA make fantastic coffee!! So after class we catch up, have a laugh and socialise over coffee – this is extremely popular.
