So you are still studying but also looking for ways to make money on the side? You have read about Zumba classes: they are all the rage these days and that sounds like fun, so you are thinking about teaching zumba while completing your bachelors which is a pretty good idea, actually!
Here is what you need to know in order to become a licensed Zumba instructor:
You must have a love for dancing and a sense of rhythm. If you are already in love with Latin dance moves and are a fitness freak, then you are more or less set!
The first thing you need to do in order to become a certified Zumba trainer is to visit the Zumba Academy Training website and register there. It is a trademarked exercise program, and so it is required that you are certified from them.
You must then enrol in the beginners program like Zumba Basic Steps Level 1 and Jump Start Gold program. After this, they will teach you four different dance moves like salsa, merengue, reggaeton and cumbia. They will also teach you how to show dance moves to your students, both young and old, and how to meet their physical and psychological needs and requirements.
There are lectures and then practical training sessions that will help you learn and develop the required skills. Once you have successfully completed the training, you will be given a license that will allow you to teach Zumba to your students for exactly one year. You are required to renew the license every year in order to continue teaching your students.
It is important to understand different aspects of Zumba and not only learn, but also master different dance moves to perfection because only then will you be able to teach your students. You will have to be physically fit and fine in order to learn this art form.
