Zumba can be intimidating if you don't dance. But I can teach you the basics! Follow these simple steps and see how you do. Class is simple once you master the basics! There is no right or wrong in Zumba. Zumba is about adding your own style! Learn the basics, have fun, and let loose!
Please refer to pictures for general stance. Refer to videos for movement (**Note: My left is your right. Likewise, my right is your left.)
Step 1: Your Zumba gear
Keep the following in mind before class:
- Wear work-out clothes: shorts, tank tops, sweat pants, etc
- Wear dance shoes or sneakers: You will move your feet around a lot. Make sure your feet are comfortable!
- Bring a bottle of water or gatorade to class: You need to re-hydrate between dances. Drink plenty after class as well!
