The city, home to “The Happiest Place on Earth,” will become even more upbeat as it turns up the heat hosting global fitness leader Zumba’s annual convention August 13-16, at Hyatt Regency Orlando. Attracting 7,000 licensed Zumba instructors from 80+ countries, the epic, four-day dance-fitness extravaganza returns with an action-packed schedule of new classes, specialized trainings, and plenty of sweatworking.
The most anticipated one-night event, its famed Fitness Concert, hits the stage on Friday, August 14 at 8 p.m. with a star-studded lineup. The spectacular concert cardio party — a half-a-million-dollar production — welcomes Bachata, R&B/Pop icon Prince Royce, and reggaeton sensation Yandel, who will each perform a few of their top hits, complete with Zumba choreography.
“There’s nothing like performing live, but doing so in front of 7,000 people who are dancing in-sync with choreography to my music is going to be an amazing experience,” said Prince Royce. I am excited that Zumba instructors all over the world have taken my music to their classes–15 million people every week–and that I can share my voice and sound with the masses.”
The high-tech, high-energy concert will showcase 20 choreographed songs, featuring more than 40 performers, including a 10-piece band, percussionist and LED drums, all highlighting the magical marriage of music and dance for the ultimate Zumba experience. A total of 250 intelligent moving lights, 5 large LED screens, a hi-res video wall and arena sound system elevate the large scale production to a whole new level. Past Fitness Concert live performances have included artists ranging from Pitbull, Wisin, Sean Paul and Lil Jon, to Vanilla Ice, Daddy Yankee and Brazilian superstar Claudia Leitte.
“The Zumba convention is something we plan for year-round and serves as the largest gathering of our global Zumba family,” said Zumba creator Beto Perez. “The Fitness Concert experience continues to evolve and expand with incredible talent, dancing and high-level production. The event is filled with thousands of passionate and dedicated instructors who can’t help but spread their contagious smiles.”
