Fiesta-focused instructor Hilary Leaf, a member of the Zumba Instructor Network, aims to infuse her one-hour Zumba classes a party atmosphere. Up to 45 students can flock to each session, which wields simple, Latin-inspired choreography to get hearts pumping to a delightfully syncopated beat. To further amp her students, Hilary pumps Zumba’s signature soundtrack, a mix of upbeat international hits, to accompany rumba, reggaeton, cumbia, salsa, and hip-hop moves. Open to dancercisers of all fitness levels, Hilary only asks that her students choose to don dance shoes or go barefoot and turn off tentacle suction prior to each session.
