More like a dance party than a strict fitness regimen, really! Ever since Zumba® was introduced to me by "The Floor" at Girinagar in June 2013, it has quickly become the hottest routine for many fitness enthusiasts in the city. I am one amongst those bunch of doctors, lawyers, home makers and teenagers who trooped to the dance floor not with the slightest idea about what lies ahead. Within months of being a client, I chose to be trained as an instructor with my passion for Dance spurring me ahead. Trained by ZES Sucheta Pal,Zumba® became more than a fitness routine, it became my zest and career!
Now I delight in bringing more and more people into the wonderful dance and fitness movement known as Zumba®! Dance history includes 5 years of Bharatnatyam, Contemporary/Bollywood @ SDIPA, Pune, Hip Hop @ The Academy Of Modern Dance, Chennai, 1 year of Kathak @ Jathiswaraalaya Academy of Dance and Music and 1 year of Indian and Western Contemporary @ Aangik by Arunima Gupta, Cochin.
The Foundation and formula to teach Zumba® classes with the four basic Zumba rhythms (merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaeton). Zumba Fitness provides all the tools and resources needed to lead successful Zumba classes.
Without this license, no instructor is allowed to take a "Zumba" class
The Zumbatomic® program is now Zumba® Kids and Zumba® Kids Jr and it's twice as good. Zumba Kids classes for ages 7-11, and Zumba Kids Jr. classes for ages 4-6.
This course allows you to identify the right fun, kid-friendly moves to impress today's youth and tomorrow's Zumba class participants!
With cool and age-appropriate music, Zumba Kids and Zumba Kids Jr. classes are a great way to increase focus and self-confidence, whilst boosting metabolism and improve co-ordination.

Conversation overheard during an office tea break after a co-worker experienced a mild health scare: "It was only a slight variation, nothing to worry about," said the visibly relieved colleague, sipping his daily dose of machine-made tea. "Well, you're about the right age, you should be due for a heart incident soon," joked another, a 'veteran' patient after a recent angioplasty. Busy schedules and long working hours have left fitness and fun by the wayside and given rise to a whole generation who take hefty medical bills to be a given in their future. But necessity is the mother of invention, and this same generation is now embracing modern workout routines that seek to combine fun with fitness, with dance, martial arts and even the simple act of reminding oneself to get up from the office terminal being integral parts of making fitness an achievable goal
