We’ll share our top three picks for the best Zumba classes in Canberra. This way, you can exercise and have fun both at the same time.

Let’s start.

What Makes a Reliable Zumba Class?

There are several key differences between a good Zumba class and a great Zumba class. You want to find a class that you’re excited to return to again and again.

We suggest that you watch for these important traits:

  • The instructors connect to the class. The instructor should be able to show their classes that they’re having fun. They should offer routine modifications so all fitness levels are comfortable when they attend the classes. You want to see song requests and an instructor who shows interest in their students’ progress.
  • There is a solid reputation.The Zumba class in question should have a great reputation for being a fun and safe environment to exercise. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask current and former members what they thought of the class.
  • Competitive pricing. You don’t want to go over your budget when you pay for your Zumba class. Look for classes with competitive pricing. If you plan to take a group, look for possible group discounts or offers.
  • Insurance and certifications.No one wants to get hurt. But, it’s important to know that you have coverage if you are. Make sure that your Zumba instructor has their certifications and that there is liability insurance in place.

If you want high quality Zumba in Canberra look no further than Zumba with Naomi at the Canberra Dance Theatre in Civic. It is on at Wednesdays 7.30pm or Sundays 4pm.

Amazingly fun, high energy, gorgeous choreography and the most welcoming, encouraging teacher to guide you from beginner to advanced.

I am just a participant, no financial interest, just have been so impressed I wanted to share. You can find Zumba with Naomi on Facebook or Google the Canberra Dance Theatre.
