The city, home to â€œThe Happiest Place on Earth,â€ will become even more upbeat as it turns up the heat hosting global fitness leader Zumbaâ€™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.
â€œThe Zumba convention is something we plan for year-round and serves as the largest gathering of our global Zumba family,â€ said Zumba creator Beto Perez. â€œThe 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 canâ€™t help but spread their contagious smiles.â€
