ZUMBA® Education Specialist, UK & Lead ZES Aqua ZUMBA

Since Mar 2008


  • B1 Training
  • ZIN Member 

You should not take this training if you have any physical condition that would impair your ability to participate in a basic Zumba® fitness Training.


This Specialty course is the "pool party" workout for all ages. You'll learn how to teach safe, effective and challenging water-based workouts that integrate the Zumba formula and philosophy into traditional aqua fitness disciplines. 
License: Aqua Zumba® license as long as you are a ZIN Member in good standing. 

The pre-requisites for our AQUA ZUMBA® are to have completed the Basic 1 Training and be a current ZIN Member.  Please be aware that teaching this programme in the UK may also require you to have a fitness or water fitness certification and appropriate public liability insurance.  Whilst this is not necessary prior to the AQUA ZUMBA® Training you may find the need to have this in place before starting classes.  Shallow water certifications can be found through a number of different providers.  Our aqua programme has been created with AEA (Aquatic Exercise Association).  One such training provider for shallow water courses is who offer several trainings.

As with all ZUMBA® Instructor Trainings, following the aqua training day you are licensed to teach AQUA ZUMBA® providing you remain a ZIN Member in good standing.  It will depend on each facility where you work whether you are required to have a life guard on duty or if they have other safety regulations.

AQUA ZUMBA® is a shallow water class taught from the deck.  Even if you have taught other water fitness classes the moves we use in AQUA ZUMBA® are a little different and therefore the training day itself will start with you participating in a one and a half hour AQUA ZUMBA® class/session to experience the feeling the moves have on your participants and how to adapt these in your classes.  It is necessary for all participants to take part in this in order to complete the training.  We would advise all instructors have a good level of fitness to complete this training.
