Zumba classes with Salsa Manchester team

 Do you want a fitness class in Manchester that inspires you, energizes you, gives you a full body workout in a party environment? Well, you’ve got it: Welcome to Zumba!


La Suerte Dance School is proud to bring another addition to our timetable: Zumba! Manchester, welcome to a dance fitness class like no other. The essence of Zumba is to make you feel like you are at a party. This way, it doesn’t feel like you are exercising at all, just having fun, pulling out moves on the dance floor :)


The weather is often not good, so Manchester exercise inside at a party!


Zumba started when one aerobics’ instructor forgot his tape to his aerobics’ class. Minutes before the class, he realised this. So instead of cancelling his class, he decided to do the class to one of his own personal tapes, which was filled with Latin music. His students loved it. At the next class, there was double the number of students, and at the following class double the previous class. The phenomenon started……


Anyone, regardless of age, fitness or natural rhythm, can handle a Zumba class. Manchester we invite you to give it a go :)

The Zumba Workout

The La Suerte Dance School Zumba workout combines high-energy dance moves with more traditional exercises. Throughout the routine, moves are performed to upbeat music selections, including merengue, salsa, reggaeton, bachata and hip-hop. The tempo alternates between slow and fast; classes begin with a warm-up session and finish with a cool-down period.

Benefits of Zumba

Every session of Zumba makes you burn 500 – 800 calories without feeling that you worked out. In Zumba, your mind is at class - you are concentrating on the steps, having fun and moving to the music. Zumba is an exercise in disguise. It is not like going to the boring gym – doing reps and sets; therefore people stick to it and that’s why it is effective. To gain the most benefits from a Zumba workout, keep your entire body moving at all times by shaking body parts, moving laterally and engaging your arms. Zumba is fun to perform and can lift your spirits while helping you get in shape. The positive group dynamic can encourage you to stick with the program. Zumba is a happy drug. Zumba is an electrifying joy. You forget everything – especially stress from your daily life. Zumba improves your mental health and improves your physical image which in turns helps you feel better - a Zumba High!

In La Suerte’s Zumba Classes, we like to use our Dance experience in generating our Zumba classes. We mix easy Latin dance moves with traditional aerobic exercises to top Latin songs. Come along to La Suerte Dance School and give Zumba a go Manchester.

Second location!


Hello everybody.

Please read the following information (I know it’s long) if you want to be up to date with our changes at La Suerte.

  3. Ladies and men’s styling. New formula for these classes. We will attempt to do a salsa battle every time during the monthly party at La Suerte. Meanwhile we will prepare separately routines for men and ladies during the classes. Men’s styling every Monday 8pm at La Suerte, Ladies styling 7pm every Friday at La Suerte 2. The battle is only one aspect of this class. The most important is obviously improving your own style. Learn how to shine with us!

  4. Ritmo Cubano (Tuesday 7pm - La Suerte 2). It is a perfect class for everybody interested in developing rhythmically. We will start simple explaining many Cuban rhythms. We will try to play and dance them as well. Who knows where this class will lead… maybe some band? :)

  5. Body isolation (Monday 9pm - La Suerte 2). Improving the body control is the main aim of this class. Unusual movement - a must for all intermediate / advanced dancers :)
