Zumba Gold ~ Why Zumba Gold? Just as much fun, just not as fast. All the fun of Zumba, but at a lower paced and a low impact. For active older adults and those that may have limited mobility for any reason such as a weight issue or injury recovery or simply someone that has not been exercising. Zumba Gold utilizes Latin styles of music and dance, it’s innovative, fun and exciting. No Dance experience or partner is needed.
