Dennis Guzman is an amazing Zumba instructor who teaches all over Los Angeles, but my favorite venue is $5/class (yes!) at the North Weddington Recreation Center (Mon.-Wed.-Fri. @ 12:15-1:15pm). It's difficult to find Zumba teachers with solid dance training. Too many think it's enough to shake their booty, and there's little technique supporting their moves (and yours if you are following them). Dennis is not only creative with the choreography of his Zumba (a gratifying mix of aerobics, Latin dance, and jazz), but his effervescent encouraging-self is contagious.
He calls it "Join the Party" Zumba, and it's easy to see why. You should always dance like nobody's watching, but Dennis makes you feel like you are having a great time at a fun dance party.
A huge bargain on every level. Zumba on, Dennis!
