Whether it’s Zumba, Aqua Zumba, Zumba Gold or my increasingly popular Clubbercise classes, there’s still time to shake that booty and get swimwear fit before you jet off for your summer holidays.
Final classes before my summer break will take place at the end of this month and the first week of August – full schedule below.
But I’ll be back and raring to go for classes again, starting 5th September. And I have some great news – I have a new Clubbercise class starting in Eye at Hartismere School. Whoo hoo!
Looking forward to seeing all my regulars soon and hope to welcome some newcomers too, so do spread the word my friends.

After confirming the launch dates for my new Clubbercise With Eileen classes in Stradbroke and Saxmundham earlier today – and announcing a new Zumba Gold class at the Pennoyer Centre in Pulham Saint Mary last month – I am delighted to announce that I am launching a new weekly Zumba Gold class in Debenham.
The Debenham Zumba Gold classes will be held every Friday morning at 10-11am, starting 20 May 2016.
Classes will be held at the Debenham Sports & Leisure Centre.
Zumba Gold is designed for the active mature adult, the beginner or for those who may need special dance modifications in a fitness session.
The pace is not as “high energy” as a Basic Zumba Fitness class and has more comprehensive breakdowns of the fitness choreography.
It’s perfect for young mums who might have just given birth and want to ease back into exercise, or for those individuals who feel that they can’t keep up in a regular Zumba class.
In the meantime, if you have any questions feel free to give me a call on 07813 854255 or email email@example.com.
See you soon,
Zumba Gold not quite for you?
Want a more joint friendly workout? Try, Aqua Zumba
Or, maybe Belly Dancing will be just right for you perhaps?
Where has this month gone? For that matter, where has the beginning of the year gone? For those of you that know me, no grass EVER grows under my feet-as they say in The States. With this statement I am proud to announce some very exciting developments.
The first of the year I decided to become an Ambassador for TROPIC Skin Care. This amazingly, natural, organic and Vegan skin care line also has a magnificent colour line to rival any of the beauty lines which one will find on the high street.
Tropic’s philosophy is one which believes a woman should be pampered; and, why not? A TROPIC PAMPER EXPERIENCE simply involves hosting a party where friends get together for fun, indulgence and ultimate VIP shopping. Free skincare consultations, spa facials, hand treatments, and makeovers with an “evening in” with the girls makes for a wonderful and luxurious experience!
Here’s the best part: as a TROPIC Hostess you will receive 15% of the total sales to spend on products for FREE. Plus, you will also receive a special gift from me. Win, win situation! Like my new Tropic Eileen Facebook page for regular updates.
New classes in Clubbercise and Zumba Gold
Another new development is that I am launching new classes in CLUBBERCISE! This unique dance fitness exercise program is designed for 16+ and involves dancing in a Club like atmosphere to all of your favourite tunes. Participants groove to catchy Club anthems in a darkened room with glow sticks and neon lights; but without the hangover, and without the heels!
A Clubbercise session can easily burn approximately 500 calories and is really like a “night out” instead of an exercise class! Glow sticks can inexpensively be purchased in class and are used all throughout the session.
I’ll be posting locations shortly so stay tuned! Classes are planned for a May 2016 launch and will cater for those living in and around Saxmundham, Framlingham and Eye. For regular updates simply like my new dedicated Clubbercise Facebook page (Clubbercise Eileen Suffolk – Sax, Fram and Eye) by clicking here.
On the Zumba frontier; another Zumba Gold class is planned to begin 6 April, 10am at the Pennoyer Centre in Pulham Saint Mary. The address is; Station Road, Diss, Norfolk IP214QT.
It’s a very quaint building with a lovely adjoining cafe and is located only a short distance from Harleston! If anyone is interested in attending a “Zumba light” session in a wonderfully civilized setting, this is the class for you. Please contact me if you are interested or know of anyone else who would like to attend.
Meantime, Happy Easter everyone! If you’re looking for some delicious recipe ideas to wow your family and friends this Easter, I have just added the recipe for my favourite appetiser, Salmon Mousse, to my recipe page – where you can also find the recipe for my Tasty Chocolate Brownies too. Go on spoil yourself this Easter – you deserve it! And if you’re worried about the calories over indulging may grind, well you can always make up for it with a bit of Zumba, Belly Dancing or Clubbercise after the holidays! Just give me a bell …
With this being the last week of classes for 2015 – and following my previous post regarding the holiday schedules – I thought I would give you a quick update: 2016 classes will resume the week starting Monday 18th January.
Sincerely, Zumba Eileen x
Christmas is coming!
I will be breaking for Philadelphia mid December. Last class for this year ends on December 12th. Stay tuned for more information as to when classes resume in January 2016. Please note that the Wilby venue at the Coronation Hall will no longer be used for classes. A new class has instead been introduced – Zumba in Worlingworth on Thursday evenings at 6pm. 2016 calendar to be available shortly.
If I don’t see you before the Christmas break have a happy holiday and hope to see you in the new year. Lots more to follow! Keep checking the web site for additional information.
Sincerely, Zumba Eileen
MORE THAN £2000 RAISED
A massive thank you to all who turned up, took part and shook your booties to make our Zumbathon! Charity Event such a fantastic success on Saturday 24th October - a total of £2160-76 raised whoo hoo!!!
Special thanks need to go to our Zumba Staff: Susanne Campbell, Samba band member and Zumba coordinator; Sandra Bloomfield, Assistant Coordinator for Thomas Mills Sports Centre; Jackie Matthews for her Poster Design; Sally Steward for her time and energies distributing our Zumbathon posters; and Amy Goulding of Impulse Fashion for ticket sales in her Framlingham shop.
We kicked our Charity event off with a very energetic warm up led by Zumba’s own Cumbia and Reggae ton Jammer, Nadia Alkoc - who came all the way from Scotland to shake her booty. If that wasn’t enough, the next day she conducted an all day Zumba Cumbia Jam session in Ipswich. Check out the photo below of Nadia, myself and three other Zumba colleagues.
Our Zumba performing team consisted of Terri Cave, Emily Bower, Nadia Alkoc, and of course, myself. You guys were all amazing!
Check out the action shots of Emily (left) and Terri (below right), they really say it all. Or click here to watch a video taken by Gail from Rage With A Smile Photography and Design of the 10 minute warm up featuring all of us doing our thing!
Contagious energy and laughter
During our performances, energies were flying, bodies were pumping, and laughter was contagious.
The Never Ready’s Samba Band was our “Break”. Of course, that didn’t really happen.... how can one NOT dance to Samba music? The band, dressed as pirates were brilliant. Check out the video by clicking here.
Thanks to the wonderful photos by Des Fisher from “Near the Coast” we have a snap shot (amongst many others) of Colleen Knight’s daughter - a little Zumbette in the making, waving her pink blanket to the beat of the drums!
And if one needed a break from dancing, we had fabulous cakes and macaroons (supplied by Rhonda) to munch on, coffee, or tea to sip, and Processco. Great job Rhonda, your macaroons are to die for.
Our vendors all did a great job setting up their stalls. Susanne Campbell displayed her jewellery and some very creative Christmas ornaments for the upcoming holidays. Karen Lomax from Tropic had her natural body product line which is part owned by Sir Alan Sugar.
Younique and Forever by Liz Yeatts had some of the most gorgeous shades of lipstick colour that I’ve ever seen. The Peacock Emporium owned by the very clever and talented Textile Artist, Julie Filmer had the cutest handmade material figures, perfect for underneath a Christmas tree. End of the Rainbow had lovely gift ideas for those hard to shop for individuals and both Impulse Fashions and Body Shop had an amazing stock presentation. Whoo hoo!
Raffle prizes galore
After our dance performances, it was raffle time! And, raffles we had. They were some of the most incredible gifts not to be believed. The grand prize was a two week stay in Spain! Our sponsors (listed in full below) were beyond generous. The H-P’s Emporium alone supplied us with 13 raffle gifts! I was so touched by everyone’s generosity. Thank you so much.
We had dinner, deli, hair cut and blow dry vouchers; baskets filled with coffee and flavoured syrups, chocolates, locally produced food items, handbags, shawls, amazing jewellery..I could go on and on. The highlight of the raffle draw was when we found out that the winner of the Grand prize to Spain was the Vicar!
Lastly, a big thank you to everyone who baked cakes, exhibited their products and helped spread the Zumba love. Most of all thanks to all you women who showed up and rocked the floor!
