Zumba—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favorite hybrid fitness routine with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get 12 Zumba classes (a $60 value) at Zumba Pachanga Colorado, located in the Aerial Dance Over Denver studio on Hampden Avenue. Although today's Groupon does not expire for a year, once you've taken your first class, you must dance and sweat your way through the remaining 11 classes within 30 days.
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.
Latin dance is an excellent way to jump-start a fitness routine, a fun way to meet new people while remaining active, and ideal for pounding unruly floorboards back into place. Zumba Pachanga's airy central studio provides a roomy environment for shaking prehensile tails and backside plumage; orange and red walls contrast vibrantly against black floors, the warm tones in sync with the flavor of the Latin music. With today's Groupon clenched dramatically between your teeth, saunter down to Zumba Pachanga and get rolling, stepping, and shimmying on your 12-class package.
