What Should You Wear to a Zumba Class?
Comfort is key for Zumba! With it’s high intensity, dynamic dance moves that constantly have you jumping and darting, comfortable fitness attire that gives you full range of motion is perfect.
You also want to wear clothes that absorb sweat, such as cotton and nylon. When choosing bottoms to wear we recommend wearing stretchable leggings, capri pants or workout shorts. For tops choose breathable t-shirts and singlets.
Zumba is all about having fun, so when choosing your clothes don’t be afraid to go for bright, vibrant colours!
What are the Best Sneakers for a Zumba Class?
It is important that you wear comfortable, supportive shoes. Zumba has a lot of pivots and side-to-side movements so you want to make sure your footwear can handle that and support your ankle whilst providing cushioning. We recommend wearing shoes that are lightweight, breathable and supportive, especially around the arch area.
