ZUMBA is alive at the Racquet Club!

Image

Zumba originated in Columbia in 1990 when Aerobics teacher, Beto Perez, forgot his usual music and had to improvise with the traditional Latin/Merengue music he had in his car. That class ended up being a huge success and is the birthplace of Zumba as it is today. It is now taught in 35 countries with over 20,000 certified instructors. Classes are music based on Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Raggaeton etc. Zumba's mission is to get fit and have fun!! There are no complicated moves to learn and you don't need to be coordinated. Not to mention the music is so infectious it makes you want to dance.

"It's a great way to lose weight, increase strength and coordination, foster self-esteem and have fun all at the same time!"
