How to Build Confidence Through Dance

You come for the exercise. The friendships. The party. But, have you ever stopped to think about how confident you feel after class? Research has proven that dancing boosts self-esteem, likely because learning new skills and socializing both improve self-image. One study even showed that just 12 weeks of Latin dance training was enough to increase dancers’ self-esteem.

Here’s why we think you leave Zumba® class feeling so good!

Getting gown and dirty with the destrozaZumba® moves are made to help you feel like your best self while you’re burning calories. Doing those hip-shakin’, glute-shapin’ moves gives you an excuse to let your inner Beyoncé out!

Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle, yeah! Getting your groove on like you’re in the middle of a dance floor at the club is a great way to try out hot new dance moves without leaving your comfort zone. When you get home, you feel like a million bucks because you know you still got it. 

 Letting it all go. Whether you’re a teacher, a stay at home parent, a construction worker, or anything in between, we guarantee you can shake your day off in Zumba class. Within a few minutes, you won’t be thinking anything other than “single single double” and “wepa”! Classes are designed to #LetItMoveYou and when you do, nothing else matters.
