Festive Zumba Dance Party

Everyone loves a great party, and not least at the end of the year, right?! On 29 December, maroc-o-phile organised probably Essaouira‘s first ever Zumba Dance Party!

Under the theme of ‘dance your way into 2013’, around 15 local ladies and visitors attended the event at the Nokado Jiu Jitsu on Rue Zenata in Borj for two hours of Christmas calorie-burning, butt-shaking, energy-intensive, dancing fun!

We were privileged to have the talents of two professional Zumba instructors: professional dancer, Mahatara Youssef, who is now teaching regularly in Essaouira and, from the UK/Poland, Joanna Weintritt.

Inspired by the music and dance of the World, Zumba is a great way to party yourself fit! Mahatara offers regular classes for adults and kids in Essaouira and hopes to participate in further workshops in 2013 to fill you with energy and inspiration for the year ahead!

No Zumba or dance experience is required for classes or workshops – just come along and join in the fun!! And be prepared to sweat!

This event was supported by: maroc-o-phile, Fitness Soul and Let’s Dance Morocco/Mahatara Youssef.
