Pernice, famous for his skill and passion as a Latin dance champion and choreographer, was invited by the team behind Zumba® to learn choreography from the four Zumba® rhythms with a selection of the UK’s Zumba® Instructor Network, led by leading Zumba® Education Specialist Sandra Harnes.
On taking part in his first Zumba® class Pernice said, ”
‘’The way Zumba is created just makes it so easy to follow – so it’s easier to focus on just having fun in the class, without actually realising you’re exercising. That’s pretty cool, especially for those of us who find workouts hard to stick to. The class was like going to a party and dancing to the best Latin tunes. The best way to express yourself!”
After being put through his paces in a fun-fuelled high-energy tutorial session, the 31 year old Sicilian-born dancer having been seduced by Zumba®’s fiesta vibes, returned to host an special Zumba® class in London.
“I think a lot of people tend to fall off the exercise wagon when they’re exercising on their own. There’s something really amazing about being able to move together as a group, in a judgement-free environment. It seems to lift people mentally, and make them feel happier – we all need more of that”
Zumba® hope you are inspired to join a Zumba class this summer; get happy whilst working up a sweat like the TV King of Dance himself!
