Samba Class

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Hello everyone,

I will be offering a samba dance class on Thursday February 22nd, 7-8pm (we will start shortly after we finish zumba class).

Samba is a Brazilian dance which we have done in Zumba. There is also a ballroom version of samba which incorporates some of the  Brazilian movements and in Zumba we use a mix of Brazilian samba and ballroom samba moves.  I love samba. When I competed, samba was one of my favourite dances, because of the combination of movement across the floor and dynamic rhythms.

I’m going to design the class like I did for the cha cha class we did recently (video on facebook here). We’ll do a routine and I will incorporate familiar moves from Zumba and do some technique and breakdown, and also a bit of new stuff to challenge you a bit, but it won’t be too hard!

$10 per person if you have a Zumba pass, or $15 otherwise. Anyone is welcome, it will be beginner friendly. Online registration or in person.

Wear your Zumba shoes, or if you are feeling up to it, dance specific heels or shoes are good too.

Happy dancing everyone,

Popi

Cha Cha Dance Class

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Cha Cha Dance Class

Hello everyone,

Since we have been doing a bit more of cha cha in Zumba lately, I thought it might be fun to do a cha cha dance class. Cha cha is a dance that originates in Cuba, and is also one of the dances in competitive ballroom dancing, which many of you know, I did for many years before my Zumba days. I love cha cha – it’s fun, rhythmical, with lots of hip action, grounded foot work and cheeky attitude. I’m going to design the class for solo dancing, ie no partner work, and I will focus on a dance routine that incorporates some of the movements and syncopations of cha cha. There will be some moves we don’t usually do in Zumba included to challenge you a bit!

Thursday January 25th 7-8pm (we will start shortly after we finish zumba class).

$10 per person if you have a Zumba pass, or $15 otherwise. Anyone is welcome, it will be beginner friendly. Register online or in person.

Wear your zumba shoes, or if you are feeling up to it, dance specific heels or shoes are good too.

Happy dancing everyone,

Popi

Zumba cancelled Wed Dec 27 & Thurs Dec 28

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Zumba cancelled Wed Dec 27 & Thurs Dec 28

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays.

I’m sick with a flu, so I’m going to do something I don’t normally do, and cancel class tonight and tomorrow. I think my body needs a rest, and I’m going to listen to it. I tried to find subs for the classes but this time of year as you can imagine is a bit difficult and I couldn’t find anyone suitable to sub.

Sorry to let you down if you were planning to come to zumba this week. Those of you who paid the month pass for December, can do $50 next month instead of $60. Classes will resume this Saturday.

Now, just because I need to rest, that doesn’t mean you do! So, I hope you find a way to keep moving this week! Wishing each and every one of you wonderful new years celebrations, and a fabulous year ahead. Even though I’m sick, I’m feeling grateful and reflective and I am looking forward to a wonderful 2018.

See you soon,

Popi
