Tina Guershon oversees the fitness curriculum at FuzeMove Fitness, channeling more than 20 years of dance and performance on the island of Barbados. The majority of her fellow teachers were once former students at FuzeMove, who became enamored with the supportive atmosphere and the slimming effects of their Zumba and Bokwa workouts.
Both party-like group workouts mix dance with aerobic movement to tone muscles and burn calories. Zumba draws from salsa, cumbia, hip hop, and other dance styles to choreograph routines, whereas Bokwa combines basic boxing techniques and Kwaito, an African dance method. Though they might look impressive in action and painted on a velvet canvas, neither of the methods require any prior dance or fitness experience.The fitness studio mixes up their routine with special events, such as bollywood dance workshops or Zumba parties set in a night club setting complete with black lights and glow sticks.
