James & Alex is the best Dance School & Dance Academy for Zumba with the best Dance Curriculum and Dance Program in Dubai.

Zumba is a Latin-inspired cardio dance workout class suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It improves your cardio, coordination and overall physical fitness. In this class, get ready to dance to a variety of music from Latin to African beats to hip-hop and pop!

Dancing to the beats of salsa, flamenco, reggaeton and hip hop music feels more like a dance party than a workout, which is exactly what makes Zumba so popular. The Latin-inspired dance workout is one of our most popular group exercise classes.

The high-energy classes are set to upbeat music and feature structured choreography. You don’t need to be a great dancer to feel welcome in our Zumba class; just join the party, the classes emphasize moving to the music and having a good time, no rhythm required.

Working up a sweat in the 60-minute classes burns an average of 369 calories — more than cardio kickboxing or step aerobics. You’ll get a great cardio workout that melts fat, strengthens your core, and improves flexibility.

James & Alex Dance Studio is located in Dubai Media City and very near to Palm Jumeirah, JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence), Marina Walk, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT), Jumeirah One, Two, Three, Al Sufouh, The Greens, The Views, Emirates Hills, Top Golf Dubai, & Al Barsha 3

If you have heart disease, your doctor may suggest starting back on the road to fitness in a cardiac rehab program instead of jumping right into a Zumba class.
