Erica Kovacs leads students through Zumba classes that burn up to 1,000 calories. While trading boring repetitions for an energetic dance-party atmosphere, Zumba marries Latin-style dance moves with international music. Erica teaches three varieties, starting with Zumba Basic for beginners and fans of the original flavor. Zumba Toning participants shake maraca-like weights to add resistance to their shimmies. Alternatively, students dance with chairs during Zumba Sentao. This challenging workout blends dancing with squats that make the chair really jealous.
