It was great to attend the UK Zumba Academy 2020 at Manchester on Friday 7th February. The first day was a master class with all the UK Zumba Educational presenters. Saturdays sessions kicked off with a master class from the boss himself Beto Perez who was brilliant! Next to follow was a Flamenco workshop with the amazing Jessica Espocito called “Flamenco Flow”. The session was full on with lots of tips and advice on how to incorporate the flamenco style into our Zumba classes. Next up was Zumba Strong, the latest speciality from Zumba which was fab to watch from the side line! I think my favourite session was the afternoon workshop with Mansoor Galant called “African Beats”. Hard work with lots of isolation moves and a real challenge! The final session was Latin Urban and I have managed to pick up quite a few choreography ideas to use in our classes so all good x
We all had a big surprise when the X Factor finalist Fluer East took to the stage with Beto! May be we should bring back our “Sax” track in Fitsteps? The day ended with a gracious speech from Beto and I finally managed to get a picture with him!
All in all I had a fabulous weekend with great company and came back fully inspired!!
