First UK-based Zumba instructor conference

Posted on February 14, 2012

The first ever UK-based Zumba instructor conference is about to take place, owing to the huge success of Zumba Fitness nationwide.

The dance-craze’s birthplace, Florida, is already the scene of a three-day conference held exclusively for ZIN (Zumba Instructor Network) members but, thanks to the talent emerging in the UK, Beto Perez, Tanya Bearsdley, Gina Grant and Kass Martin will meet at London Excel, from February 24 to 26. 

The conference will give UK instructors the chance to boost their careers whilst enjoying an exclusive preview of a brand new speciality – Zumba Sentao. 

In addition to the introduction to Zumba Sentao, highlights of the weekend will include Friday’s Zumba Fitness Concert, which will be led by founder Beto Perez, and UK Carnaval: A Grand Gala of Music and Dance on Saturday night.
