ZUMBA GOLD® is a fitness program specifically designed to take the exciting Latin and international dance rhythms created in the original ZUMBA Program and bring them to beginners who have never done Zumba, the active older adult, and other special populations that want a safe and effective total body workout. In other words, anyone can do Zumba Gold!
Created to emphasize the basics, this energetic program is so easy to follow that people of any age can do it! This invigorating Latin-inspired, dance-fitness program includes Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Belly Dance, Flamenco and Tango. Every class feels like a party! There is lots of smiling and laughing during Zumba Gold!
The movements focus on exercising range of motion, improvement of balance and coordination. All classes start with warm up activities and end with cool down and stretching activities. Zumba Gold can incorporate the use of a chair as needed for people with mobility or stamina needs. It’s great for the mind, body and soul of participants. In addition to getting a great aerobic workout, Zumba Gold is a social event. You will make some new friends!
