Zumbini Class

Are you interested in becoming a Zumbini Instructor?

As a stay-at-home mom, I am always looking for activities to do with my daughter.

When I found Zumbini classes online, I was bummed to see there were no classes within a ten-mile radius.

So, I thought to myself, since we can’t go to a Zumbini class nearby, why not bring the Zumbini class to us by teaching it?

As I read more information, I realized that being a Zumbini instructor could allow me to have another source of income, set my own schedule, and, most importantly, create a joyful and fun time for a child with their parent or caregiver's participation.

So, what is a Zumbini class?

Zumba and Baby First created Zumbini for children 0 to 4 years of age to participate with their parent or caregiver. Zumbini classes are not kids’ Zumba classes, as I initially assumed.

The 45-minute classes involve music, movement, and instruments. Classes, on average, have ten children with their grown-ups.

Zumbini classes engage all three types of learners: visual learners, audio learners, and physical activity learners. 

And all the Zumbini music is original.

Steps to getting a Zumbini Instructor license

I became a licensed Zumbini instructor as of September 6, 2023. 

Opting for the on-demand live session allowed me to pace myself and complete it in sessions during my daughter’s naps.

The following three steps are what I completed to earn my Zumbini instructor license.

  • Complete a live session or an on-demand live session
  • Complete online portion-split modules; you will have 30 days to complete them
  • Sign the license agreement and join the PLAY instructor network

Even though I have my Zumbini instructor license, I still have additional steps to complete to be fully prepared to teach a Zumbini class. The following is what I need to work on next.

  • Join the Zumbini instructor Facebook Group
  • Review the Zumbini curriculum with the instructor manual and memorize songs for the lesson plans through the PLAY instructor network 
  • Purchase instruments for class
  • Purchase annual liability insurance 
  • Find a place to teach 
  • Start marketing your classes

Final thoughts:

Overall, the Zumbini instructor training was straightforward and easy to follow.

I like that they offer a lot of support through the PLAY instructor network and have a Facebook Group where you get to pick the brains of experienced Zumbini instructors.

 Stay tuned as I continue to learn the lesson plans to teach sometime in the Winter.

    Congratulations on getting certified. This is so cool. I haven't kept up with the Zumba world and didn't realize they had a program geared to children. This is necessary for stay at home moms who want to be active. Thank you for sharing!

      Thank you so much for reading my blog! As I am practicing the lesson plans, my daughter has picked up on the songs. So I look forward to seeing how the parents will bond with their children once I start teaching Zumbini.
