Moving to Xcite dance was a huge step in improving the quality of my classes. With this big step, i decided that now was a good time to make my classes even better once again to offer the best class possible for my students. The following are a few other steps that i have made.
1) Payment Options etc.
Drop ins now $7
New 5 punch pass, $30
Monthy Memberships $45
(10 punch pass still $50)
2) Front Desk help:
Before it was becoming quite a joke trying to teach a class while collecting money, signing ppl in all at the same time. I have hired someone to help out daily. Check in with her beforehand.
3) 100% Mixed class :
It does take time, but I started t doing a continueous mix throughout the whole 1 hour class. (Ill take requests and cool down after.. my classes end up about 1:15 mins.) This way class is more intense, the cardio wont drop as much, and it flows better. I have / will also throw in 10 second breaks to grab water.

Before, i have always been very true to what i believe the zumba formula should be. 75% Zumba basic rythms (cumbia/salsa/reggaeton/merengue). I am changing that percentage for a number of reasons. Quite frankly, the basic have lost much of their novelty to me and my longtime students over the last 3 years. Also I am on the east side now.. not in midvale that is predominately latin.. White music.
Anyhow, with electronic music being more popular than ever, i am doing alot more of it. Also, i have always been great at hip hop... my classes are always begging for it. So there will be less latin, more Electronic / Hip hop.
The new standard is the best music, and not the most popular, which is not usually the same. This takes at least 3 - 4x longer to find.... but i intend to offer the best class possible.
