Dance Classes from The Past
Lets start with fitness Aerobics! If you were born between the 60's and 80's you know about Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons. Aerobics by definition means a system of physical conditioning that increases the efficiency of the body’s intake of oxygen, thereby stimulating the cardiovascular system, developing endurance, and reducing body fat. From an outsiders perspective fitness aerobics included neon or cheetah print leotards, big hair, a lot of jumping around sprinkled in with inspirational screaming. Dance programs like Reebok Step Up and Jazzercise dominated the 80's and 90's. Fitness clubs across the nation offered morning and night adult dance classes in the fitness aerobic category.
Zumba started working its way through Chicago around 2012. Classes have less people then ever before. Is this because Zumba is dead? No it's because our market is saturated with certified instructors. You can find Zumba in almost every fitness chain across america, inside local dance studios and national chains. Zumba lives on.
