Hello! I'm Marie Kube, and I live in St. Paul, MN. I've been a ZIN™ Member since Jun 2019 and I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! I am currently licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba® Toning, Zumba Gold®, Zumba® Kids & Kids Jr. I am an AFAA Certified Group Fitness Instructor. Come join me, I guarantee you will have a blast! Got questions, don't hesitate to drop me a message!
-Welcome to your FREE Zumba® dance
fitness classes live via Zoom and on demand (see class schedule below)! All are welcome!
-I call these classes suave dance fitness classes because they are intended to be smoother (suave) with less impact on the joints to make you feel good.
-Classes are designed for any gender.
-Rhythms include Salsa, Merengue, Reggaeton, Cumbia, Bachata and more.
-I will be facing you, so follow me like a mirror image. I will give you visual cues like hand signals to indicate what moves to do and in which direction.
-Listen to your body and your healthcare practitioner to modify any moves to what is good for you. You can progress moves by increasing range of motion and intensity; and you can also do the opposite to make it easier. Keep your knees behind your toes and aligned with your 2nd and 3rd toes.
-Drink water to stay hydrated. Take a break if needed; just try to keep moving so your heart rate and blood pressure do not drop too rapidly.
-Let’s warm up and then dance and then cool down and stretch. Clear a safe space free of obstacles. Wear aerobics, cross-training, court, or Zumba® shoes that provide lateral support and allow you to twist and turn. Wear Dancesocks if you are on carpet.
-Have fun! Thank you for dancing with me!
Thank you for your comments; I use them to help improve the class.
-I have PTSD (Zumba dance fitness helps!), which makes it easier for me and others like me to be startled. This is an involuntary response that one has little or no control over. I will not yell or shout at you or stick my tongue out at you. I let you enjoy the awesome music. Thank you for understanding. Love, Marie
