Description

Program Details

Program Name:

Zumba

Program Category:

Health and Fitness


Program Description:

Zumba Fitness is a Latin-inspired cardio-dance workout that uses music and choreographed steps to form a fitness party atmosphere. While many of the types of dance and music featured in the program are Latin American inspired, classes can also contain everything from jazz to African beats to country to hip-hop and pop. Since its inception in the mid-'90s by creator Alberto "Beto" Perez, the Zumba program reaches 10 million people in more than 90,000 locations across more than 110 countries.

Zumba is truly for anyone who can stand up and dance. And "dance" is a very liberal term here, as no dance experience or skills are necessary. People of all ages, shapes, and sizes are welcome and encouraged to attend classes. If you can shake your booty and like fun music, this class is for you.

Most Zumba classes are an hour long. They begin with a dynamic warm-up and end with a cool down and some static stretching. The workout portion is broken down by song, each with a different dance routine. While many of the dance moves instructors use are pre-choreographed by Zumba, instructors often add their own flair, dance steps or even create an entirely new routine to their favourite songs. Common moves in class are mambas, V-steps with exaggerated hips, cha-cha-chas and side touches. Unlike other aerobics classes, where you learn a move and then add on more moves to create a routine, Zumba uses different parts of the song, such as the chorus or a particular phrase or sound in the song, as the basis of its choreography.


Cost Per Term:

$ 70.00 per term


Registrations:

Late registrants will pay for a full term and make missed up missed sessions by attending alternative sessions within the lifelong learning program, within that term. Attendances cannot be accumulated, carried forward or 'banked' for later use.

A pro rata rate for the remainder of the term can be issued in certain cases at the discretion of Council staff.

Terms cannot be shortened and discounted further to factor in non-attendances dates. It remains the responsibility of the participant to ensure they undertake all sessions. Forgotten or missed sessions will not be brought forward into the next terms' enrolment.


Please observe the scenario below:

Mary registers and pays for a 10-week term of Zumba. Mary has been on holidays and returns to start in the 3rd week of a 10-week term. Meaning, Mary has missed 2 sessions of a total of 10. Mary will, therefore, attend the remaining 8 sessions of yoga, but in addition, will participate in an additional 2 sessions of another program of her choosing during a different time slot and/or location to make up the total of 10 sessions.

Mary can do this at another location across the LGA or even in a different program area like Yoga or Pilates. Mary has emailed the Centre staff or Lifelong Learning Officer to confirm which make up sessions she will attend before doing so; Council staff have informed the facilitator ahead of time.


Notes:

  • Casual sessions and 'pay as you go' are not available;
  • Staff will most likely not be onsite at the time of the program to take your payment. Therefore, this needs to happen before participation;
  • Some of Council’s community Centres are staffed during business hours. Please use Council’s Eventbrite pages for all registrations and payments;
