Zukossa Heat FAQs
What is Zukossa Heat?
Zukossa Heat is an aerobic dance workout that embraces West African, Caribbean, and Latin rhythms. It includes both fast, medium, and slow rhythms to help tone and sculpt your body. The class provides modifiable dance moves for people with different abilities. In our classes, we incorporate various music genres and teach different styles of movements and routines that can easily be transferred onto the dance floor. Bring your fire, let’s sweat!
Q: Do I need previous dance experience?
A: No, you do not need any previous dance experience. The basic dance steps are taught to you in the class. If you do have previous dance experience, Zukossa Heat will help you add new moves to your dance repertoire.
Q: What kind of intensity should I expect?
A: Zukossa Heat is a Low/Med/High impact aerobic dance class. The routines feature aerobic interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body. Burn 400-1000 calories in one hour!
Q: What should I wear?
A: Wear comfortable clothing. Basically "work out gear." Comfortable and supportive dance sneakers are very helpful. The best ones for Zukossa Heat are ones that absorb shock.
Q: What should I bring?
A: Water! That is a major priority. Always keep yourself hydrated before, during and after class. A towel! Bringing a towel helps with removing excess sweat….especially if you sweat like Dr. J!
Bring some friends! Get friends to come with you to Zukossa Heat classes! The invitation will give you that extra boost to stay motivated, hold yourself accountable, and meet your health goals.
Q: I can't get the steps! What should I do?
A: Calm down, listen to the music, watch the dance steps, and practice, practice, practice! Sometimes an hour of class time just isn't enough to get all of the footwork. After repeating the movements, you will be a pro in no time.
