Things to Consider:
Zumba is fast paced dance exercise, do not start without consulting your doctor, especially if you have any sort of heart condition or joint problem.
If you live close to few dance studios or gyms, always take a free class in both the venues and judge before you commit to any place.
Zumba classes are conducted in groups, make sure you check with the studio if they allow only a fixed number of people and if so, how many.
Some gyms or dance studios accept more people per class just to increase their revenue and this can cause a lot of discomfort to you as it get crowded, sweaty and you’ll end up bumping into others regularly.
In conclusion, you will that Zumba classes in Dubai are an affordable and fun way to lose weight, especially when you choose the right venue and surround yourself with the right people.
Have a great time!
