The aim of the afternoon was to help clients gain access to sport.

Everyone seemed to enjoy joining in with the warm up and we had lots of smiling faces.

Zumba® Masterclass with Lyna Mourcou


The Masterclass was held at Totton Health and Leisure Centre on Sunday, 27th May 2012.

Thank you to all our ladies who attended.

I think you will all agree it was a fantastic evening. Lyna was electric !! She is such a character and it definately came over in her performance. We loved her impression of Mick Jagger !!

The weather at the weekend had been extremely hot but we rose the temperature even higher !!

Zumba®, sunshine, the addictive Latin music = the perfect evening.

Hopefully there will be another Masterclass very soon.

Check out our gallery for photos of the event.


Winchester Sports Festival 2012


Zumba® South Hants attended the Winchester Sports Festival on Sunday, 20th May which was held at the Garrison Ground, Bar End in Winchester.

Over 30 clubs covering the Winchester area were there advertising their clubs and holding demonstrations.

Zumba® South Hants held a demo in the main arena. Several of our ladies and gents joined in with the demo and they were soon joined by many other people attending the event.

The demo was great fun with the Zumba® music being played by Breeze FM.

A BIG thankyou to everyone who supported us on the day by taking part in the demo and an even BIGGER thankyou to Leah who stayed the whole day to help out (and it wasn't the warmest of days!!)

Our next event is towards the end of june. Further details will be available soon.


Zumba® JAM Session


All three of Zumba® South Hants, Glenda, Cilla and Chloe, attended the Zumba® JAM Session in Corfe Mullen on Sunday, 11th March.

Corfe Mullen is such a pretty place, the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and Zumba® music was pounding out from the village hall. What a perfect way to spend a Sunday!

The session was taken by the lovely Lyna and involved us learning four great new routines.

The JAM sessions are designed to teach instructors new routines, give us new ideas to bring to our classes as well as giving us the chance to meet other Zumba® instructors.

All three of us had a fantastic time, learnt lots and laughed loads.

Look out for more new routines in our classes over the next few weeks. :-)


Zumba Gold® & Zumbatomic® Training


The New Year began with Cilla completing her Zumba Gold® training followed a few weeks later by Zumbatomic® training.

The Zumba Gold® training was with Sirin Ortanca. The training was amazing and it was fascinating to learn how Zumba® steps could be adapted for the participant looking for a lower impact Zumba® class.

The Zumbatomic® training was with Naomi Di Fabio Mokoena. The training was brilliant fun and the course was packed full of fun from start to finish,

Children will love Zumbatomic®!

Maybe you are involved in a school or know of a school or children that may be interested in Zumbatomic®. Cilla is more than happy to offer a free taster session. Just give Cilla a call on 07729 263058 or email her at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
