Classes are offered at all levels, including standard Zumba, Zumba Gold for senior citizens in the UAE, Zumba for kids and even Aqua-Zumba done in swimming pools. Because Zumba is based on music and dance, it seems to speak a universal language that people of all nations can relate to. There is no large learning curve in a Zumba class. New participants may receive small-scale step rehearsals before some longer dances, but in most cases, first-timers can simply jump right into a class and follow along with the Zumba instructor in Dubai or Abu Dhabi.
As a Zumba instructor in Dubai I always have plenty of modified options for clients if they have some issues with the knee or if they are a bit more overweight and can not do quick and intense movements like jumps etc..
Each movement has a modified option what gives people more comfort and confidence to join any class even if they are a beginner.
I also explain before the class to client , if they are can not follow the movement first time it is no problem at all , it is all about keep doing it and practice and that is when the brain learn the movement and the muscle memory happens.
