Professional dancer Giovanni Pernice has partnered with global Latin dance fitness brand Zumba® to offer his very own series of Zumba® tutorials. Launching on YouTube today, along with a special mini workout, the ‘Zumba® for Beginners’ series gives everyone the chance to learn the moves and get fit for free with the TV dance star!
Following his introduction to Zumba® last year, Giovanni became committed to sharing the workout that has changed the way millions of people around the world engage with exercise with it’s fun, accessible vibe, easy-to-follow rhythms, and exhilarating music. The two-part tutorial series, presented with Zumba® Education Specialist Sandra Harnes, is designed to teach the core steps of the Zumba® workout, so that people can learn at home, at their own pace and start to become familiar with some of the moves.
All the steps then come together in the 15 Minute Mini Workout with Giovanni, where learners can experience the flavour of Zumba choreography in a ‘class’ environment, building their confidence so they can go on to attend a live Zumba class.
“Zumba® is such a great workout and I love that it’s known as ‘exercise in disguise’. It really is simple, regardless of your dance experience – and you can go at your own pace. These tutorials will have people feeling Zumba® class ready in no time; it’s the most fun you’ll ever have getting fit!”
