Zumba Fitness Party Aims at Inspiring Healthy, Joyful Trinis This May
- Thursday May 10, 2012 - An initiative aimed at getting more Trinbagonians in tuned to health and fitness is happening in T&T. With a lot of talk worldwide on the new fitness trend called Zumba, the Atrawets School of Dance and Dance Education in T&T is moving to make citizens from all walks of life here at home, better aware of this fun, practical health trend by hosting its second annual Zumba fitness party.
Fully aware of Trinis’ thirst for a good event, complete with music and good company, the dance company is challenging citizens to come out and prove they’re good sports, even when it comes to health and fitness. The event, which is being staged at the Cascadia Hotel Ballroom from 6:30pm on Saturday May 19, starts off with a two-hour long Zumba segment complete with the hottest Zumba steps and movements and then wraps up four hours later with what is being described by event organisers as the ultimate cool-down party at the venue.
Online at, the fitness routine is described as an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party, that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health. In T&T, the Zumba fitness routine emerged approximately two years ago, however since that time, the trend has remained somewhat dormant on the island with only small pockets of people truly getting involved. Now, Atrawets School of Dance and Dance Education believes it’s high time Trinbagonians caught on and got involved in something that could
really change their lives.
On May 19, the Cascadia Ballroom will be converted into fitness party central and many are expected to be a part of the initiative, which will see part proceeds being donated to the Diabetes Association of Trinidad and Tobago and the Autistic Society of Trinidad and Tobago. The event will be hosted by RED 96.7FM radio personalities and former Soca Monarch and Road March champs, JW and Blaze. Tickets are being sold for just $200 with special corporate packages available for businesses whose employees yearn for a truly fun-filled evening of stress-free
exercising, followed by a good Trini party.
Zumba is on the rise worldwide and organisers of this unique fitness party all agree that Trinidad and Tobago nationals are sure to enjoy the dynamic of Zumba, which is quite reminiscent of the sexy body movements that most Trini women are often inclined to showcase on any dance floor and especially at carnival time.
