Generally a Zumba program involves 2-3 warm-up songs with 7-10 actual workout songs & 1-2 cool down songs. This data is not precise & can be altered according to the length of the songs. It is usually recommended to use 70% of Latin rhythms while 30% of any other type of music chosen by your Zumba instructor. Many different music styles like cumbia, salsa, tango, rumba, mambo, salsa, calypso, and even Rock & Roll are nowadays included in a Zumba program. You can select any Zumba CD for you from a large collection available like “Vibe Tribe” & “Party Nation”. The Exhilerate 1 & Exhilerate 2 are the latest Zumba CD that contains the Latin rhythms with music for Belly Dancing, Hip Hop & Tango. The songs on these CD’s are sexy & fun, which can definitely help keep you in a great mood!
The Zumba music & workout routines are individually set by the Zumba instructors. You can get the Zumba music either from the Amazon, iTunes Store or from other music downloading sites. But if your instructor is from a Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN) then your instructor will get different Zumba CD or choreography every month. Your Zumba CD gives you the mesmerizing Zumba music while you can also get the steps of each Zumba song by the Zumba choreographed DVDs. Song selection is completely in the hands of your instructor. He or she can even take some ideas and tips from these DVDs for their classes. Being in a Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN) means all your requirements will be fulfilled.
For people who are new to Zumba exercises as well as for the active older adults, Zumba Gold class programs are there. The music used for Zumba Gold is sometimes the same as regular Zumba programs. The Gold music Zumba CD is also available for the people who get involved in a Zumba Gold Workshop. Generally the Gold music Zumba CD includes the following forms like C’mon and Dance (Merengue); Cabo de la Vela (Salsa Cha Cha); Zumba Cumbia (Cumbia); Ya Llego (Salsa); El Twist de la Munequita (Rock ‘n Roll). Muevete Pa Ca Muevete Pa lla and Quien Balia, Quien Goza are used as warm ups while Mi Ritmo and Aromuzak are used as cool downs. The Zumba Gold involves the slower beat & transitional moves.
