The Zumba® Kids & Zumba® Kids Jr. programs are designed exclusively for kids (4 – 6 & 7 -11 years old*). These programs appeal to children who are currently active in sports but also children that are not necessarily attracted to traditional physical activities.
These programs inspire kids to express themselves through movement and play while effectively improving their overall health and well-being.
Educators love it because it’s active, fun and helps increase focus, self-confidence, boosts metabolism and enhances coordination.
Myself as a Zumba Instructor qualified to teach Zumba for kids since 2011. I believe that is important to do something different and fun with kids and give them a memorable experience. Zumba® introduces them to dance and fitness, shows them how body, rhythm, movement, creativity and feelings work together to become an art.
