What's new?

So many new and exciting things are coming up in the next couple of months!

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27 @ 7:30 pm - We are having an Introduction to Zumba (Zumba 101) special class!  If you are new to Zumba or have friends who have been wanting to try it, or if you simply would like to brush up on your skills - this class is for you!  Cost: $7 or use your punch pass.  We will break down the steps for Cumbia, Merengue, Reggaeton, Salsa, Tango, Flamenco, Belly Dance and Samba.  Bonus notes and sample song list will be provided.

PUNCH PASS PROMOTION  This August is a student appreciation month!  If you come to my classes at least twice a week – this deal is just for you!   Here is the scoop :)  During the entire month of August get 2 punch passes for only $85.  That means you get 20 classes + 2 FREE classes for less than $4/class! WHAT??!!!  That’s right.  You have 3 months to use both passes which means you need to come to class just twice a week (or more if you'd like!), but this will save you $15 in punch passes cost.  What a deal!  This promo will expire on August 31, so hurry and get your double pass and a free pass holder starting August 1!

ZUMBATOMIC ADVENTURES are Zumba for Kids classes designed for children ages 3-11 will also starting in August!  Zumbatomic Adventures program has been designed by Karine who has a special license to teach Zumba for Kids.  Zumbatomic Adventures combined everything the kids love to do:  dance, explore and have fun!  These monthly classes will run on Friday afternoons from 4 to 5 pm at TLC Dance.  Sneakers or dance shoes are ideal for this class.  Dress your kids in breathable clothing and send in a bottle of water.  Check our schedule on the right and get your kids excited - we are going to have a blast!  Cost is only $7 per class and every class is a party adventure!  We will visit places around the world and learn about different cultures, music and dance.

Zumbatomic Camp revisited

We had the most amazing time at Zumbatomic Camp this week!  So many talented little dancers, so many new friends!  Kids' ages ranged from 3 to 8, and every one of these kids brought something unique to share with everyone - their cute fun personalities made this such a delightful experience for everyone.  They learned as much from me as I learned from them :)  They now can tell you all about cumbia and show off their best cumbia moves.  They can dance to Waka Waka better than mom while pretending to be wild African animals.  They can teach you a "penguin" dance and rock it to the latest radio hit in their sunglasses.  They dance to merengue and put on the best neon light disco show in town!  They even get their parents to party with them like rock stars!  What a fun two days we had!  These kids trully inspired me.  I can't wait to share my new ideas with parents and with my little friends :)  Stay put for more from Zumbatomic at TLC Dance!

P.S. Huge thanks to TLC Dance for making this happen and for always being open to my ideas, to Vangie Manzanares and Nadia Ganom for helping me with the camp activities!

I'd like to hear from you!  Post your song suggestions, comments, questions!

Have you tried Zumba Toning yet?

While I do a lot of toning exercises/steps in my regular Zumba® classes, I felt like I wanted to push my body a bit further and add that extra boost to my workouts.  So when I learned about Zumba® Toning last year, I decided to get certified and add a separate toning class to my schedule.  It soon became one of our most popular classes and my students' favorite.

When it comes to body sculpting, Zumba® Toning raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick). It combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba moves to create a calorie-torching, strength-training dance fitness-party. Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs and thighs. Zumba Toning is the perfect way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.
These are the toning sticks!  The yellow ones on the left weigh 1.5 lb each.  These are the ones we work out with in class.  Some of my students have recently started using heavier, 2.5 lb toning sticks (on the right) to add an extra boost.  Give it a try and see what works best for you!

Zumba Toning classes:
WED @ FUEGO at 5:30 pm
SAT @ TLC Dance @ 9 am (will be switching to Monday nights in June).
