Brilliant Zumba class tonight with Gueti. Please note that her class was previously at 7.30pm and it is now 7pm.
I spoke to other women in the class and they love Gueti because she puts her heart, soul and passion into her fitness classes. This is Zumba with a difference: Brazilian-born Gueti knows her latin music and she cleverly mixes samba, salsa, merengue, cumbia, aerobics, stretching and conditioning.
She's warm, she's energetic and she has a mission to get London shaking that booty!
I recommend her classes, even with the tube strike the place was full, Gueti followers would climb mountains to make it to her lesson.

Do you do Zumba regularly, is it hard to learn? I really want to try it but recently gave Zouk Lambada a go and found it quite hard to do the steps, though that was mainly because it was with a partner which was very new to me!

Hi Judy! Lovely to hear from you! Zumba hasn't got a Pineapple Dance Studio-style structure so maybe it's more similar to good old fashioned aerobics. The teacher, Gueti, does put together very short steps sequences but they are repeated several times so everything becomes second nature. Give it a try! And by the way to offer for a massage is still valid, when you have time please come and say hello at Trinity :)

I went to a Zumba class lead by Gueti Ribas, the Brazilian fitness bombshell with so much energy she could light up the Christmas Lights on Oxford Street without any electricity!
Zumba as many of you know is the latest fitness craze mixing Latin dance with aerobics for fast and effective fat loss. You burn between 400 and 600 calories an hour and you can see it at the end when you have to wring out your t-shirt like a damp cloth!
Gueti is an amazing teacher, very inspiring and the hour goes in a flash.
Dragon Hall is also a good venue, very central (near Holborn station) and the dance studio is very spacious, I reckon we were about 40-50 people exercising there and there was enough space to do all the dance moves, arms waving and all!
I do recommend you try this drop in class at Dragon Hall, every Wednesday at 7.30pm (£7 per class and when you do 9 classes you get the 10th free, just remember to bring your loyalty card).
This is the most fun you'll have with your clothes on!

Having never done dance classes I wasn't sure what to expect, but the teacher was really good and got us launched right into it so that by the end of the first class I was able to do something that was clearly recognisable as ballroom dancing! The venue was ok but the class felt a little crowded as the hall is fairly small.
