Items by Zumba Fitness may be covers; search Amazon or iTunes for the title and listen to a sample to see if it the same song. If it is not available for purchase through one of these venues, it is probably a Zumba original song and unavailable to buy.


Aqua Zumba playlist additions – 2013-07-18

Here’s a listing of new songs I’ve been teaching recently.

* Cogelo Ahora – Sie7te – rock/pop (I use the Zumba cover)
* Contagious – Zumba – electropop
* El Testamento – Zumba Fitness – techno cumbia (available by various artists)
* Ice Ice Baby (Zumba remix) – Zumba Fitness & Vanilla Ice – rap & hip-hop
* Mano’ Pa’ Arriba – Papi Sanchez – reggaeton
* Shisha – Exotic Arabian Grooves – Middle Eastern

I also have a lot of requests for this song:

* Hola My Friend – Zumba Fitness – Polynesian rhythm

I can’t find it to purchase, so I think it must be a Zumba original. My students love to sing along to this one!


Aqua Zumba on hiatus

Thanks to all my intrepid Aqua Zumba gals! The class wasn’t even on the official schedule, and we managed seven or eight people a week. Thanks so much for your support and enthusiasm!

I hope to get the class up and running again in May, assuming pool availability. Be sure to watch my blog, my Facebook page, and my Twitter feed—I’ll let you know when we reboot, never fear.

My Big Jambox has been returned to the manufacturer for replacement. Thanks for bearing with me during my music trials and tribulations, and for singing along to conceal the static.

Zumba love!


Aqua Zumba pickup class added (Jan-Feb 2013)

You asked, I responded! I requested an addition to the UMF HFC schedule of Aqua Zumba. After checking pool availability, we’ve scheduled Aqua Zumba on Tuesday evenings at 5:15–6:00p. Class begins today (January 22, 2013) and ends at the end of February (last class February 26, 2013).

This class is not going on the schedule because we can’t guarantee that it will be covered with some kind of aqua offering when I am unable to teach the class. So count yourself in the know, and I hope I’ll see you there!

This class is right after the only class I’ve got on the published schedule: regular Zumba at 4:15p. This class will be covered by other instructors when I am unable to teach it.
