Stop counting the reps. Start training to the beat.

ABC: AFRICAN BEAT CULTURE SESSION
Presented by Zumba® Education Specialist Mansoor Galant
ABC: African Beat Culture is about taking a journey through music and dance, showing ZIN™ Members the evolution of South Africa from the apartheid era to the present. ZIN™ Members will be exposed to music native to South Africa, not only "African" music, but mainstream music as well. Native South African dance elements and choreography will be taught, thus expanding your dance learning spectrum. Due to the diversity within Africa and South Africa, this will allow instructors to learn and experience a variety of dance and rhythmic styles. ZIN™ Members will feel empowered and inspired by the presenters as they also give different tips and techniques on how they can cue and connect with their students in class.
4:30PM - 6:00PM
