Zumba Pachanga offers up a steaming platter of exercise that's more enjoyable than riding manatees. Zumba combines thrumming Latin rhythms and music with simple, heart-pumping choreography. Owners Jamie and Felix Ojeda are bilingual, energetic, and certified Zumba enthusiasts itching to instruct fitness pilgrims on the rhythms of salsa, cumbia, bachata, samba, and more. Though Latin dancing brings forth collegiate memories of doing the Cotton Eye Joe during Dead Languages 101, in actuality it emphasizes movement through the hips and waist to build core strength and burn calories. Partake in this dance feast with the studio's flexible schedule, which offers classes six to seven days a week at a variety of times and includes the new Zumba Toning class that incorporates weighted sand sticks and strength training into traditional Zumba moves. Each class lasts for about 60 minutes.
