Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to wear / bring?

Something comfortable, flexible, and breathable. Zumba style is all about bright colors and bold graphics, and sneakers are a must. We recommend you bring a bottle or two of water to keep hydrated, but we also have water available in the studio for you.

How many students are in each class?

Class size varies depending on time, instructor, and event but you can expect to be joined by 10 - 40 other enthusiastic attendees at any given class.

Do I need previous experience?

Absolutely not! Our instructors are trained and inexperienced in helping anyone, at any fitness or skill level, participate in and enjoy their classes. The key is coming to class-- you'll catch on quick!

Can I pay for classes by the month?

You bet. For $90 / month you become a Master Move VIP (member) and can attend as many Master Move classes as you'd like! As a Master Move VIP, you will be the first to learn about exclusive upcoming events, be part of our dance routine recordings (if you wish), and receive a Master Move t-shirt upon request.

Do I have to pay online when booking my spot in a class?

No, you do not. When you book a class through our online reservation system, you can choose to pay either online OR in-person. If you choose to pay in-person, our receptionist will check you into class when you arrive and request payment at that time, which you can provide in cash or through the CashApp mobile app.
