Other Events



The one hour session got more than 50 students of different batches (predominantly freshers ) ending their day with ZUMBA- an intense high-cardio workout that helps burn 350-600 calaroies in an hour. Workshop was organized on Tuesday (12.30- 2.00) by DANSATION under the guidance of internationally- certified ZUMBA instructors. Workshop started with some warm-ups followed by ZUMBA steps with some nice heavy music. ZUMBA didn’t require any previous experience with dance and also the fitness level or age didn’t matter. All the students had enjoyed to core along with shedding some calories. That one hour was filled with fun, never imagined that a workout session can be so much fun. Nice to see many students in one place with similar interests. This Latin-inspired high energy fitness workout is big now. IT WAS FUN… IT WAS A PARTY… IT WAS A GREAT WAY TO WORKOUT…
