Description
Zumba is a fusion of Latin and International Music and Dance themes creating a dynamic, exciting and effective fitness system; both fast and slow rhythmic training will be used. Students will join the fun party-like atmosphere and will receive feedback as they monitor caloric burn. Current fitness level will be assessed and analyzed using accepted measurement techniques. Those measurement tools will be used throughout the quarter to measure fitness progress and students will be taught how to apply these tools to any form of cardio work. Students will also have an opportunity to improve dance skills.
