Zumba was created by Columbian Beto Perez by a "happy accident" in the mid-90s.Beto arrived to teach an aerobics class and had forgotten his traditional aerobics music.Improvising he unpacked some of his favorite latin music tapes from his back pack, popped them into the sound system and let the music move him. The Zumba Fitness-Party was born!

In 2000 Beto decided to take Zumba to America, it was a struggle at first but in 2001 his idea caught the eye of two entrepreneurs, the three men joined together to create Zumba Fitness.

Zumba is now all over the world. It's the most funyou will ever have whilst burning those calories without even realising it!

Zumba Kids & Zumba Kids Jr. (Zumbatomic)

Zumba Kids & Zumba Kids Jr. (Zumbatomic) are amazing - the kids love it just as much as the adults! It fuses the Zumba program's exciting formula with the psychology and physiology relevant to teaching kids (Zumba Kids 7-11 years, Zumba Kids Jr. 4-6 years).

As well as weekly classes, I organise Zumba Kids Parties for children in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

Zumba Kids blends dance fitness routines with high energy music, fun and games which include dance offs and much more.
(Included in the package, present for the birthday girl or boy and rewards for the party goers!)

Up to 10 children £50 one off payment, more than 10 £3 per child. 1.5 hours.

The number of calories each person burns per class varies. However, depending on your body parameters (type, composition, intensity, range of motion), you can burn hundreds of calories per class.


A frequent question people ask is how many calories does Zumba burn? Many other resources tell you that you can burn 500 - 1000 Zumba calories per hour, this is good to know but still a bit vague.

Other examples state that if you are 150lb you burn 536 Zumba calories per hour, this is great if you happen to be 150lb, but what about everyone else?
