Zumba Gold Playlist

October 25th, 2010


I teach Zumba Gold twice a week. The only differences between my Zumba and my Zumba Gold classes are:
1) no hip hop or rap in ZG,
2) no jumping & less turns in ZG,
3) more repetitive choreography in ZG (btw, more repetitive does not mean boring!), and
4) my playlists change less often for ZG.

I like to give my Zumba Gold participants more time with songs to get comfortable, and my Zumba Gold participants seems to like to have familiar songs too.

Here is a “master” Zumba Gold playlist of the music I have used in my Zumba Gold classes over the past few months sorted by style. Whether you are a Zumba Gold instructor looking for ideas, or a Zumba Gold participant looking for your favorite music from your class, I hope you enjoy!

    Thank you so much! Of course…Papa Loves Mambo. I’m planning my first Z Gold class and I just thought a familiar song or 2 or 3 would be a really good connection. I’m going to think along those lines to get a few more ideas. Like the station on Sirius that plays those songs…whatever it’s called now. I would bet a few Rosemary Clooney songs or Louie Prima would fit the bill, too. Thanks a million!!!
