India, 2019:15th March 2019 was a milestone day for Zumba® in India. International icon Gina Grant from Portland made the crowd go gaga with her electric Zumba® moves at the National Sports Club of India.
This was an unforgettable experience for hundreds of participants as Gina had arrived in India for the first time and conducted a non-stop 90 minute Masterclass for Zumba® enthusiasts. She was also joined by Zumba® presenter Maria Browning and India’s Global Ambassador for Zumba® Sucheta Pal.
The ravishing actress Yami Gautam also participated in this vivacious session. She energized the crowd by grooving to the zestful beats of Badshah’s Mercy, for which Zumba® has created a choreography, soon to be available to instructors worldwide.
Yami Gautam has made Zumba® a part of her life in the recent past. She enjoys her Zumba® workouts as they combine dance and fitness. Engaging in Zumba® workouts not only keeps her fit but also ensures that she is upbeat when while getting started with her day.
Yami Gautam Says, I’m very excited to promote this amazing way to keep fit. Zumba is loved world over and to bring it to India in this big way is what got me to come on board. I have always loved experimenting with different ways to find fun in my own personal fitness regime and Zumba combines the aesthetics of fitness with dance. This breaks away from the monotony of gyms and regular workout. I am looking forward to working with Gina Grant. She is a world-renowned expert and has worked with some great names in the West. Together we are looking forward to shaking a leg and show the people the fun activity that Zumba is.
“We could not be more delighted that Yami has recognized the power of the Zumba® programme. It’s a privilege to have her attend one of our events, teaming up with International Zumba® superstar Gina Grant – she could not be in better hands,” said Dave Sibley, Managing Director, Zumba® Fitness, Europe, India and Russia
Hundreds of attendees were able to kick start their weekend and burn a lot of calories with a vibrant 90 minute Zumba® party by moving and rollicking to exciting Zumba® beats.
