Atlanta Zumba Dance’s certified instructors inspire exercisers of all shapes and sizes to sweat along to cardio routines inspired by salsa, flamenco, cumbia, and other South American dances. During each 60-minute Zumba class, easy-to-follow choreography peppered with squats and lunges makes muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Using the principles of interval training, teachers combine bursts of high-intensity exercises with waves of slow, relaxing movements that torch calories as they shimmy away stress. World music fuels each party-like workout, helping students tone muscles with energizing footwork, sultry hip swivels, and staged dance battles between actual jets and sharks.

Atlanta Zumba Dance
No one has ever trained for the lead in Swan Lake just to tighten their abs, but dancers, choreographers, and Atlanta Zumba Dance instructors Faaridah and Nahari both agree that it comes with the territory. That’s why they’ve channeled their experiences in the performing arts into a platform for dance-based fitness instruction. Faaridah was particularly drawn to Zumba because of her Caribbean and Hispanic heritage, and Nahari has been a student of Middle Eastern dances for nearly a decade, so their curriculum of Zumba and belly dancing was a natural fit.
Students can shed pounds and throw on their shiniest layer of sweat during Zumba classes, a 60-minute dance-based aerobic workout with easy-to-follow choreography performed to a soundtrack of Latin rhythms. The dance moves are an amalgam of styles that includes elements of salsa, cha-cha, merengue, flamenco, and tango. Classes at Atlanta Zumba Dance always begin with a warm-up, followed by intervals of faster and slower tempos. Visits conclude with a cool-down and stretch session. In addition to group classes, patrons may rent the studio for a private-lesson Zumba party or to spin around in an office chair without anyone telling them that they’ll get sick.
