Zumba wraps dancing and exercise into a more attractive package than past hybrids, beating out tap dancing with dumbbells strapped to feet or fox-trotting on the bottom of a full swimming pool. Shimmy yourself healthy with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 12-class punch card to Zumba Con Amy (a $60 value).
Experienced Zumba instructor Amy Quinonez leads participants through fat burning, dance-fueled fitness classes five days a week. Created by choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez, Zumba decimates calories and burns fat with easy-to-follow dance moves set to cardio-boosting, Latin-inspired rhythms. During the last 20 minutes of each one-hour session, Amy leads students through a Zumba abs routine, crunching cores with aerobic regimens and interpretive reenactments of Paul Revere’s Ride. Most classes consist of about 20 students, and Amy frequently updates the music and choreography to keep class as fresh as the air wafting from a laundromat in an orange grove.
Starting Monday, August 8, Zumba Con Army is moving from it's current location on Pioneer Drive to 1350 N. 10th St.
