You must do some background check before joining a Zumba class with Zumba Instructors.
Zumba Licensed Holder.
Do check the license from Zumba site. There are many illegal Zumba Instructors. Please don’t take classes with an Instructor who is cheating you in the 1st place.
Well, most of you think Zumba is a Dance form. NO, Zumba is a Music Company. Yes, music company, they make money from selling music license. Membership sold to ZIN (Zumba Instructors Network.)
The ZIN that means the Zumba Instructors buys Zumba music to use it in the class. So that you can have good fun in the class.
The Zumba instructors are taught different music rhythms (merengue, salsa, cumbia, cha-cha-cha, Bollywood) to take a class. Not dance styles. They eventually learn over the years. This is the important part. You must not join them in this period as they waste your time, money and energy to train themselves.
So, it is suggested, find a Zumba instructor who has at least one year of Zumba license and 3 years of dance teaching experience.
Find a Zumba Instructor with Dancer Background
This is important because dancers have a better sense of body postures. If you are struggling with few movements. The instructors can guild and help you develop your postures in the correct way.
Age of the Instructor
Find a Zumba Instructor according to your age. Zumba has 2 segments, “Zumba” and “Zumba Gold”
Zumba is for all age groups, except people who are older than 45 years. For people who are above 45 years of age should take you Zumba gold.
The instructor’s age is important here as there are instructors ageing from 18 years to 50 years. Joining someone who is outside your capacity may harm your interest in joining and doing Zumba.
Where should I find my Instructor?

The best experience is always in the group class in the studio. The energy is awesome in the studio. There is always great fun in doing classes with friends and people. Also, all studios have good facilities and maintained ambience. There is a sense of achievement in the studio class.
