Hi LORRETAST - There is not a maximum age for Zumba instructors. You just need the enthusiasm and energy to through the party! Visit the zumba.com web site and click on the link at the top for "instructor training". You can enter your state to see what might be available in your area. You can also train in another state of you have someone you want to visit. Good luck! If you have any other questions, there are lots of us lurking around. There is a Zumba Instructors group you can join as well.

As of Friday, I am an official Zumba instructor. I now have to practice, practice, practice to get my choreography down so I can begin teaching. I went to the Saturday morning class at the gym - training definitely made me a better student. Yeah Zumba!

Hello fellow ZINS and Zumba peeps! I'm an instructor from NJ and I love it! I've been teaching for 2 years. Nice to meet you all. I'm new to Spark People and still haven't figure out how to get that weight loss banner thing up. Can anyone tell me how. Thanks!

Look for a workshop in your area at zumba.com, or better yet, find an interesting locale and take a weekend trip to a place you've always wanted to see. That's what I did and I love teaching Zumba. I teach Gold, but completed both the basic and gold training.

Hi, I have been teaching for a bit and today taught a class to my fellow teachers and staff as part of a wellness day. The absolute high that you get from Zumba is like nothing else.

And my dog thinks that I am nuts too!!
