My First Class™: Empowering Your Zumba® Journey

12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Presented by Zumba® Education Specialist Lindsey Taylor.

We know that the biggest question new ZIN™ Members have is, “how do I digest all the information from my B1 training and put my playlist and choreo together to start teaching?” So, we created My First Class™, a new instructor’s ultimate tool for teaching success. This one-hour Zumba® class is designed to have you teaching sooner and with less of a time commitment. In addition to music and choreo, we’re providing guidance and tips on getting started, connecting with your students, and the next steps in your teaching journey.

Hip-Hop Turn-Up

4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Presented by Zumba® Education Specialists Gina Grant and Dahrio Wonder.

From its origins in the Bronx to the “Dirty South” flavor of Atlanta, hip hop still reigns as a global culture, dominating the mediums of dance, music and fashion. Influenced by the mind-blowing footwork of the Chicago Steppers, the fierce styles of the scene in Los Angeles, the talented crews of the Bay Area, and the international breakdance scene in countless countries around the world. Learn the moves and how to incorporate them to turn up your Zumba® classes.

Theme Party

9:00 p.m. – Midnight

The Theme Party is always one of the most memorable events during the ZIN™ Convention! In the past, we've gone Greek, took it back to the ‘80s, danced through the decades and dusted off our best prom attire. So, what will the theme be this year? You’ll have to wait and see, but we promise that it’ll be an epic night.

Sunday, July 28
