Get Your Halloween On, Zumba® Style

It’s that time of year again – goblins, pumpkins, witches, and skeletons are everywhere and it’s time for… Zumba®? Yep, instructors everywhere have great ways to bring the season into their classes. Check out these five approaches to getting your Halloween on, Zumba style!

Go Classic

This easy-to-follow routine to ‘Monster Mash’ is sure to have everyone singing and dancing along. It’s not really Halloween unless you’ve heard this old favorite!

Go Contemporary

On the other hand, everyone loves Justin Timberlake, and his creepy 2013 song ‘True Blood’ is the perfect way to get your JT fix while celebrating Halloween this year.

Go Non-Traditional

Far fewer people might know ‘Calling All the Monsters’ by China Anne McClain, but the catchy tune will quickly become a class favorite. Here’s instructor Isabel Torres showing us how fun this song can be.

Go Subtle

Mariadela Ramirez leads her class in a bubbly, powerful routine to Iggy Azalea’s ‘Black Widow’… but if you listen closely enough you realize this song is about a pretty creepy fatal attraction. Getting caught in Iggy’s web is definitely scary!

Go ALL Out

Instructor Hector Case really went for it with his class, replicating Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ video. Dressed in full costumes and make-up, these Zumba zombies really transformed themselves and their dance studio!
