For those who are encountering Zumba for the first time (like ourselves), it was originally started by a Colombian dancer and choreographer in the 1990s. Each class begins with basic easy-to-follow steps, all set to popular dance music (from hip hop and r&b, to meringue and samba). Ashlee leads each routine with repetitive motions and dance steps that allow beginners to learn without compromising the work out. As you attend more classes, the routines begin to become like second-nature (as we witnessed with the other women who attended the session).
So if you’re wanting to ‘liven up’ your exercise routine, we highly recommend attending Ashlee’s Zumba class. We can say in all honesty, we didn’t want the hour to end…and who says that about working out?
Ashlee’s course offerings:
Monday 18:00 and Tuesday at 19:00 Studio Annexe 36- rue se Genève 103 in Lausanne. It’s in the Cargo Domicile building (platform 18 on the 2nd floor)
Tuesday and Friday at 12:30 Centre Igokat- rue Centrale 31 (just underneath Pont Bessière in town)
