- Zumba is a Latin inspired, easy to follow, dance-fitness party that exhilarates your senses and works all your major muscle groups in a high energy cardio blast.
- Brighton Zumba teaches people of all abilities, ages (minimum 15 years old) and fitness levels. You don't need to be a dancer or have any prior experience, the only thing you have to do is keep moving!

Meet Sherryn, Brighton Zumba's instructor
I'm Sherryn, fitness instructor at Brighton Zumba. I'm passionate that the programme really does change lives. I've been teaching the classes here since 2010 and after 6 years I still absolutely love teaching each and every class.
I'm a licensed Zumba Fitness instructor, a member of REPs, (Register of Exercise Professionals) fully insured and also hold a certificate in sports first aid. I've been dancing for over 20 years in a broad range of styles such as ballroom, latin, street dance, hip hop and contemporary dance.
Before Zumba, I worked as a performer in the world of musical theatre, I now teach Zumba and dance full time. Each year, I co-organise Brighton's largest Zumba charity event "Zumbathon". With the help of the amazing Zumba community, we have raised over £50,000 to date for The Martlets Hospice and hope to continue to raise much needed funds for this worthwhile local charity.

Frequently asked questions
How many calories can I burn during a Zumba® class?
The number of calories each person burns per class varies from 300 - 600
Are there any age restrictions?
You must be over 16 to take part in Zumba® Fitness. 13 - 15 year olds can attend if they are accompanied by a parent/guardian.
I have a previous Injury, can I still Zumba®?
Of course you can as long as it is detailed in your Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) and I am made aware of it. When attending class you can take it at whatever pace is comfortable for you. Make sure you make me aware of any new illnesses or injuries before the start of class.
No, Zumba® is designed for everyone, no dance or fitness experience necessary. People of many different ages, body types, backgrounds, dance and fitness levels all come together to have fun and get into fabulous shape with Zumba®.
I’m unfit and have never done Zumba® before?
There is no need to worry if you have never taken part in a Zumba® class before. Zumba® uses a repetition of steps from class to class. Be patient and try it out a few times. After a few classes you will get familiar with the basic steps and my teaching methods. Before long you will be telling me what move is next! Most of all just have fun! There is no right or wrong way in Zumba®.
Should I eat before class?
Absolutely. You must fuel your body throughout the day. Eat a good substantial breakfast, good size lunch, a piece of fruit or light snack an hour before class and drink plenty of water before, during and after Zumba®.
How much is it?
£7 per class.
Do I need to book?
No. All classes are drop in sessions so there is no need to pre-book.
How long are the classes?
What should I bring to class?
Bring bottled water (although I always provide free water where possible) and a towel if needed - burning 300-600 calories can be pretty sweaty. The most important thing is a sense of humour!
What should I wear to class?
Wear loose comfortable clothing that gives you freedom of movement - T-shirts / Vest Tops with leggings / tracksuit bottoms. Ladies wear a supportive bra during Zumba (preferably a sports bra). Shoes should be comfortable with plenty of cushion and lateral support. You may find that running shoes or cross trainers have too much tread to allow for side-to-side movement. No barefoot or socks please.
