Zumba With Kass

South Brisbane

Let’s heat things up with a dash of South American flair, shall we? Zumba dancing was one of the few 90s fitness trends to emerge from the decade with any credibility, and it remains a fun and highly energetic way to keep yourself fit and active. Kass is a fantastic instructor, and offers casual classes for $12. As a special offer, you can also book your first three sessions for just $15 combined.

“Best work out ever. If you looking to burn lots of calories and have lots of fun this is the place to go. Amazing instructor with great energy and always with a smile on her face.” – lauramonroy
