Hello - I'm Jane and I love Latin and the many African based rhythms of dance which I have been performing and teaching for well over 10 years. Zumba is a great combination of all these dance genres and combined with the fun and fitness element of Zumba is a fantastic way to have loads of fun, get fit, healthy, active and add some amazing dance moves for your wild nights out!!
I teach Zumba Fitness and Zumba Gold (Low impact Zumba for beginners or those needing low impact exercise) and offer a wide range of dance styles including Cha Cha, Bhangra and Bollywood, Mambo, Rhumba, Pan African, Bellydance, Flamenca, Samba and all the usual Zumba styles as well as a lot of my own choreography.
I have a 2 lovely daughters, a great husband (who also teaches Zumba and Zumbatomic for kidz, Ben Ward) and run my own company World Jungle which is all about bringing music, dance, play and arts from around the World so that everyone can enjoy it.
You don't have to be able to dance as long as you can move you will be able to follow, I make sure my classes are easy to follow and also give instruction on the different dance moves so that you can learn the techniques.
One of the great things about Zumba, is that there is no right or wrong way and you don't have to know how to dance. Anyone can do it whether you are young, old, or in-between. Everybody has their own style and works at their own fitness level. It doesn't matter if you get all the steps right, they will come. What's important is having fun while getting fit in a welcoming, encouraging, high energy environment.
Clothes - You can wear any type of fitness clothes, think comfortable and cool. As for shoes, wear cross-trainers or dance shoes, anything that will give you support but allow for easy turning / swiveling on the toe. Also remember the importance of attending every session with plenty of bottled water.
Cost: My classes are all £4, I also offer a 10th class free card which can be used at anytime at any of my classes (Fitness and Gold)
