Loretta Bates a Zumba education specialist under the umbrella of Zumba Instructor Network will hold Zumba sessions in Bacolod City on October 4, and at The Playground, Ronac Art Center in San Juan, Metro Manila on October 5.
Zumba is a dance fitness program developed by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez in the 1990s. In recent years, it became popular among women who are looking for alternative to monotonous and boring gym workout.
DanceSports Council of the Philippines Inc. President and The Manila Times columnist Becky Garcia said that Zumba is more popular among women although men can also learn it for fun and fitness.
“Zumba is really good for the heart. It is a form of cardio exercise and good for the health.” Garcia also explained that Zumba is different from dancesport.
Bates conducts regular training sessions in North and South Carolina. She also travels around the world to teach Zumba. She is also an American Council on Exercise certified personal trainer and Aerobic and Fitness Association of America certified group fitness instructor.
Bates’ Philippine visit is a part of C-Lium Fibre and Live Love Party International’s advocacy of healthy living.
