Zumbawear: How to make a halter top out of a racerback tank (via ZLife) (via Zumba Fitness with Alena) My favorite way to wear a Zumba top! One of my favorite new looks is to make halter tops out of the Zumbawear racerback tanks.  This look became HOT after the one and only ZES Joy Smith started rockin them in classes and at events.  I like matching my new halters with colored sports bras (see below). The following are the series of steps necessary to make a halter top out of your racerback tank.  ZLife did just a great job of documenting the step … Read More

Happy thanksgiving!!

I’m at the airport waiting to board my plane home to Baltimore to see my family and I’m having my moment of reflection to think about all that I am thankful for.  I am so happy to have joyful and hilarious friends, family and boyfriend.  Life is grand!  Happy thanksgiving to all!!  There is no class tonight 11/24 or on Saturday 11/27.  I will miss you all!

Also, if you need a Zumba-fix this holiday weekend, please join my Zumba friends Stef and Claire at a Thanksgiving Zumba Class on Saturday 11/27 – go to www.zumbawithstef.com for more details!  How cute is that Zumba turkey?!

New Zumba Fitness Video Game

Woo! I adore this new trailer for the Zumba Fitness video game!

I’ve been having some great discussions with my other Zumba Instructors friends about the video game.  I really see it as a great way to get new students interested in taking Zumba classes as opposed to a replacement for Zumba Fitness classes.  Anyone who has experienced the JOY of a live Zumba class knows how the energy of the room, the people and the music feed off each other.  But I also feel for those newcomers, who walk into this crazy, intense class where everyone knows all the moves and sings all of the songs.  That can be intimidating to say the least.  So if they can try out the new video game with some of our favorite songs (Mueve La Cadera, for example) then they will be right up in the front row in no time!

What is Zumba®?

Yelp user janice l.shares, “Alena is so much fun and energetic. Her routines are easy to learn yet exciting moves. She keeps the group rockin & rollin for all types of gym rats. If you haven’t tried Alena, you don’t know what you’re missing. Alena’s special ingredient is her personality which shines through during the entire class. Alena (combined with Zumba) is what makes exercise fun!”

Yelp user Maia B. says, “I really love Alena’s class!! The music is awesome and Alena is really fun and energetic! Who knew working out could be so much fun? If you get frustrated the first couple times you go, don’t give up! I was a little discouraged the first time I went, since I didn’t know the moves and it was a bit challenging, but I am so glad I went back because it just gets better every time!”
