How are 'Zumba Latina' classes different?
Salsa Latina is the 1st Studio in New Zealand to run Zumba, and these are also the longest running Zumba classes in NZ orginally starting off with Marcela & Maria. Zumba isn't 'just' about fitness, its also about flavour! We believe good Zumba instructors should also be able to dance the above 'Latin dances'. Although you don't need to be a dance expert to get fitness benefits of Zumba, but by having that extra flavour, you get a 'real' taste of what Zumba should be like, (compared to a regular fitness instructor). We encourage you to come and experience Zumba: Latina style – heaps of fun and something a bit different! Plus get your 1st Zumba Class FREE!
What is Zumba Fitness?
Zumba is a worldwide exercise hit that invites everyone to "ditch the routine and join the party" with music-inspired, spontaneous and utterly contagious fun. By combining sexy Latin dance with dynamic yet accessible exercise moves and rhythmic cardio-momentum, Zumba has already helped to melt the pounds and inches off over 3 million Zumba-addicts in over 35 counties. However, you don't have to love exercise to love Zumba! Zumba combines the most fun easy dance styles, including; Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Flamenco, Reggaeton, Samba, Axé, Belly Dancing, Rock and Roll and more - yet the moves are so easy to do! From the dance-phobic to the dance expert, Zumba is for you! The Zumba® program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will blow you away. Our goal is simple: We want you to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked. Zumba® Fanatics achieve long-term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exciting class of calorie-burning, body-energizing, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life! The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. Add some Latin flavour and international zest into the mix and you've got a Zumba® class!
