How to Find a Zumba Class

Save

Zumba is a dance fitness trend that over 5 million people participate in per week. Zumba classes fuse Latin rhythms, international beats and easy-to-follow moves for an excellent cardiovascular workout. As of July 2009, the Zumba program was being taught at over 40,000 locations in 75 countries, so finding a class should be simple.

Things You'll Need

  • Internet access

Finding a Zumba Class

  • The official Zumba website keeps a searchable database of classes and Zumba instructors. To search for a class, go to www.Zumba.com and click on "Find a Class." Enter your address or zip code to find all the Zumba classes offered in your area.

  • To search for a Zumba instructor, click on "Find an Instructor." From this page you can search by name or by location. For example, to see a list of Zumba instructors in Chicago, IL., click on the "Search Locations" tab and enter "Chicago, IL." A list of all Zumba Instructors will pop up with photographs and phone numbers. You can also view an instructor's profile to learn more about her and where she teaches.

  • To search for an international class, from the "Find a Class" tab, click on "Looking for classes outside the US?" then select the country and city.

  • Once you have located a class, call the instructor, gym or studio to see if you need to make a reservation or arrive early. Zumba classes can be very popular and some facilities have a limited amount of space.

Tips & Warnings

  • Wear comfortable clothes and appropriate workout shoes.
  • Drink plenty of water before, during and after the Zumba class.
  • If you already belong to a gym or fitness studio, ask at the front desk if Zumba classes are offered.
  • Before beginning a new workout, be careful and start slowly. Some participants may need to consult a doctor before attending a class.
