FAQ: Q. What is the difference between Zumba class and Zumba party?
A. Zumba classes occur regularly (eg, every week) and is typically facilitated by one instructor. It usually lasts 45 min to 1 hour. Participants commit to attending those classes on a regular basis for the purpose of having fun and increasing fitness level. Zumba Parties are major events lasting 2 hours or more. Parties may contain other form of entertainment such as dance shows by professional dancers, shows by singers, guitar players – just to name a few. Parties are facilitated by several other instructors. This party will have approximately 8 instructors (to be announced). They will bring participants from their regular classes – and next thing you know…you’ve got a studio full of people who are addicted to fun that Zumba brings. Each instructor will perform several of their favorite songs.
Q. What do I do when I come to party?
A. Just like in regular Zumba class: you follow the instructors and dance! If you get tired (yes, two hours can be a bit challenging to sustain dancing in full energy), you tone your movements down, or even step aside a bit until you decide to continue again.
Q. What do I wear or bring?
A. Wear clothes that is suitable for workout. Yoga pants, track pants, t-shirt or whatever you feel most comfortable with. Bring water as it is important to keep hydrated.
