Zumba is coming up as a fun-filled form of entertainment as well as exercise. Most students choose Zumba classes as a means to fitness in their daily routines. We have an official page on Zumba.com as a certified Zumba instructor and a ZIN member.
Delhi Dance Academy has trained instructors to teach Zumba and classes are held throughout the week.
Zumba Dance for Weight Loss:
We understand that one of the primary reasons why people join any fitness program is mostly weight loss. Zumba dance fitness knocks out extra fat stored in the body, while strongly aiding calorie-burning. In the one-hour class, you can burn between 350 and 800 calories, depending on your built and the intensity with which you perform. By committing to Zumba training and healthy eating, you will organically start seeing a decrease in numbers when you stand with your fingers crossed and clenched teeth on the weighing machine.
There are various other enormous health benefits of Zumba:
1. There are four Zumba core rhythms (Basic 1), viz. Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia and Reggaeton, and six advanced Zumba rhythms (Rhythms 2), viz. Belly Dance, Flamenco, Tango, Samba, Soca and Quebradita. In 2020, the pioneer Zumba team also introduced four new peppy rhythms (Rhythms 3), namely Brazilian Funk, Bhangra, Afrobeat and Street Heat. With all these Zumba dance steps, you get to work on different areas of your body. In fact, there are special Zumba choreographies that not only include these sparky dance styles but also specifically target the core, arms, legs and glutes.
2. Any Zumba training session would incorporate fun dance-based cardiovascular movements that have a direct, positive impact on the heart, lungs and blood vessels. Performing these regularly has been scientifically proven to improve blood circulation, resting heart rate and metabolic rate, and reduce cholesterol levels, heart disease risk and, smile please, weight.
3. Muscles are important because they help us move, exercise and perform bodily functions. It hence is of primary importance to strengthen them with some strength training. With Zumba workout, you do not require weights to perform muscle endurance and muscle strengthening exercises. Certain Zumba movements target our muscles by leading them to contract and use maximum efforts for an efficient muscle training. Muscle contractions lead to better posture and bone density while providing stability to joints.
4. With regular Zumba sessions, you can bid adieu to muscle tension and soreness. When muscular tension is released from the body, our joints naturally gain more range of motion, leading to better flexibility and body posture.
What to expect (class videos)
Origin of Zumba:
On a fateful day in the mid-90s, a Colombian dance teacher, Alberto Beto Perez forgot to carry the required aerobics music to his class. Having no better option, he decided to use the old salsa and merengue music from his personal collection. This experiment resulted in hours of non-stop party like dance classes that are now known as ‘Zumba’ all over the globe!
Today Zumba involves the elements of various dance forms like belly dancing, salsa, merengue, hip-hop, martial arts and bhangra, etc.
In fact, Zumba has now evolved to constitute various categories including Aqua Zumba which includes Zumba dance steps being performed inside a swimming pool so that the dancers can enjoy a fun-filled water-based workout while toning their bodies.
The most interesting quality of Zumba is the fact that it engages its dancers in an exhilarating mode of exercise while giving them the pleasure of enjoying a stress-busting dance party!
Zumba Classes in Delhi:
Zumba has spread throughout the world in a very short span of time. With the ever-increasing demand for it in Delhi, many institutes have cropped up to meet the needs. However, while selecting an institute to learn Zumba, it is essential to keep a few things in mind.
The most important thing is to ensure that your Zumba trainer really knows his/her dance.
Being a high energy based dance form, Zumba requires you to put in a good amount of physical strength. And, while this technique serves wonders in regards to the body fitness results, it is important for your body to be well warmed up before you start to put in all that amount of effort into your dance. A good training instructor would hence, ensure that you follow a good warm-up regime along with a flawless Zumba dance schedule.
The next important thing to remember while deciding a good place to learn Zumba from is to ensure that along with all the exercise, your dance class provides you with a truly exuberant experience so that the Zumba time stands as a stress releasing and positive-energy infusing part of your day!
At Delhi Dance Academy, with our talented and dance loving trainers, we aim to make sure that your Zumba learning experience is totally enthralling and at the same time, incredibly beneficial for your physical fitness.
Which Fitness Workout is Best for Me?
At Delhi Dance Academy we run 4 fitness programs – Zumba, Aerobics, Power Yoga/Yoga and Self Defense Martial Arts. All these are aimed at increasing body flexibility, reducing fat and making you physically stronger. Power Yoga is more about muscle training along with breathing exercises and asanas to increase body endurance whereas Martial Arts are for self-defence techniques to improve combat and to protect yourself in case of adversity. Aerobics and Zumba are major stamina builders – major advantages of both and comparisons are listed on our Aerobics Vs Zumba page. If you’re a dancer, then go for Zumba and if you want rock solid abs and muscle training, then go for Aerobics! Whatever you decide to do, Delhi Dance Academy has excellent trainers and infrastructure. You can call us to discuss your personal requirements.
Question: What should I wear to a Zumba class?
Answer: You should wear what feels comfortable and breathable to you. You may choose from a range of apparels (sweatpants, joggers, leggings, crop top, hoodies, sweatshirts, leggings, etc.) easily available online and in the markets but make sure that what you wear is neither too skintight nor too baggy. Women must ensure wearing the right sports bra to the class for optimal comfort and results. Ideally, opt for clothes made up of cotton fabric as cotton soaks up most of the moisture while you work out. Avoid polyester as it is water-resistant. Lastly but most importantly, wear shoes or sneakers that aid easy leg movement and stability while you move.
Question: What age is suitable for joining Zumba classes?
Answer: Since Zumba offers everyone the liberty to enjoy classes as per their own pace, it is suitable for all age groups, including children as well as active older adults.
Question: Is Zumba suitable for beginners?
Answer: Yes. Zumba employs different groovy exercising techniques and being a medium-intensity workout, this dance workout is as suitable for beginners as for others.
Question: How is Zumba different from Boxing or HIIT (High-intensity Interval Training)?
Answer: Firstly, with Zumba training, you will get to naturally learn some funky dance steps while targeting your health and fat-loss goals. Secondly, unlike boxing and high-intensity trainings that follow a particular structure and drags you into a mentally- and physically-demanding session, Zumba comes under Intermittent Training and hence does not follow a particular structure. Zumba also does not demand a physically strong body or high stamina, and results in the stimulation of our happy hormones. The intensity of a Zumba class ranges from low to medium, and can be followed along easily by anybody and everybody.
