How Long Does it Take to Get Good at Zumba?

What Are Zumba Classes?


     Zumba Classes are a fusion of Latin dance movements and exercise that provides the ultimate fun workout experience.  Our Zumba classes here at Take The Lead are an hour long, so plan for at least 60 minutes from start to end.

     The first part of the class is an energetic warm-up that is done to an upbeat song and gets students in the mood to dance followed by a transition into actual dance songs across various styles.  Each song has its own choreography/ dance r...
