Zumba Formats Defined
Not sure which type of class is for you? Here's the rundown on what each of the Zumba formats entails...
(Basic or Regular) Zumba Fitness: The original Zumba Fitness is a Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music and contagious, high-energy steps to form a "fitness-party" that is downright addictive. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating!
Zumba Gold: This type of Zumba takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of people who need a lower impact, slightly slower-paced form of exercise. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for... the zesty Latin music, the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. It's perfect for beginners, folks who've been sedentary for a time (or forever), older adults, Baby Boomers and more.
Zumba Toning: 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.
Zumba Gold-Toning: A modified version of Toning, this format is an easy-to-follow, health-boosting dance-fitness program for baby boomers as well as beginners. Through dynamic lightweight resistance training and exciting international rhythms, these classes help participants build muscle strength, increase bone density, and improve mobility, posture and coordination.

I am taking this class over from another instructor; I begin July 11th, 2012. Class is for anyone wanting a more gentle, but still tons of fun!, Zumba experience... older adults, people just getting active, beginners to Zumba fitness, or anyone wanting a low impact, easier type of steps and music in their Zumba fitness. We'll still be having a party, but it won't be as intimidating as a regular Zumba class can be!
