Monica Bengston

Zumba is a fusion of Latin and international music/dance themes that create a dynamic and fun workout!  The routines are easy to follow and do.  No dance experience is necessary.  The routines feature fitness interval training, with combined fast and slow rhythms, that tone and sculpt the body.  

Please note that this class is normally conducted wearing appropriate footwear.  In this venue, we will be dancing barefoot.  Therefore, the class will be modified.  “Barefoot Zumba”, will be conducted at a slightly slower pace, with an emphasis on core and balance.  We will use rhythms such as Flamenco, and Bellydance, as well as modified Salsa and Cumbia.

We will focus on the joy of moving and on individual artistic expression as we explore spacious, vigorous dancing and engage in a movement community.  Class includes a structured warm-up leading to longer phrases in center and across the floor.  Some previous dance experience recommended; senses of playfulness and openness encouraged!  “Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost.”~Pina Bausch
