Went to Zumba (Six 1hour session for £20) at Sadlers Wells and Finsbury Town Hall. The teachers were really good. Studios were good too. If you are after a really good work-out then I wouldn't recommend Zumba, the hour session is not enough to work up a sweat. Overall, I had good fun (although I didn't attend all the sessions I booked due to the hassle of distance for me, travel expenses etc)
I actually did Zumba not salsa but there wasn't an option to pick Zumba. I think City Academy is a fantastic place and this was the first time I had tried Zumba. The teachers were great - all had a different style so I think for my next lot of Zumba lessons (Which i've just seen have another deal today - brilliant!) I know the style I like and will go for those teachers. Locations were all great and ultimately for £3 a lesson for a 60 min work (believe me, it is an intense work out) I couldn't praise it more.
Had no idea on what to expect with these zumba classes. All in all not bad.
In great locations and the teachers are always enthusiastic. Lack of consistency between classes and you often cover the same moves so very rarely challenging on your co-ordination but def on the heart.
Be warned classes are often oversubscribed and the hall itself has a tendency to lock you in or out. Changing rooms available on site!
In all honesty you get out of it what you put in.....Perhaps more fun with a friend and a large bottle of water.
I had to jump on the band wagon after hearing about Zumba. It was not a dissappointment either, you get to work those body muscles and have fun all at the same time. Sadler well was the best studio with undeniably energetic trainers, I did try some of the other studios on offer as saddler well was always packed and it still turned out that it was still the best.
I really enjoyed the Zumba class so far, I'm still doing it now, great energy and sweat out all the stress! Sadler's Well Theatre's space is nice, teachers I've met there are great.
The salsa taster was fantastic - we learnt the basic steps and towards the end of the lesson, could even perform a small routine to music! The teacher was lovely and her teaching style very effective - she also gave us a very good idea of what the course would be like if we took it up for the term (which we did). The venue is really exciting as the room is actually within the Sadler's Wells building.....you do feel as though you're part of the performing community! Overall, a great way to spend a couple of hours.
This location is ideal for city workers that don't live locally, the facilities make you feel like you are a real dancer! Zumba is a wonderful way to have fun, dance around uninhibited and work out whilst really enjoying yourself. I went alone and loved it, I really would recommend this to everyone.
