A couple things to consider before getting licensed to teach Zumba:
- The license is valid for one year. If you want to teach longer than that, you either have to 1) join the Zumba Instructor Network (and pay monthly), or 2) take another training.
- Teaching takes time. Not just the time actually teaching. You will likely spend (at least for your first few months) about 1 hour outside of class preparing for every hour that you teach. That’s time learning dances, making playlists, and working on marketing.
- There are other costs beyond getting licensed and buying Zumba clothes. You will need to carry liability insurance (leave a comment if you want more info…I don’t recommend teaching without it), and get CPR certified. Many instructors also become personal trainers as well.
So take all of that into consideration before you commit the time and money to be licensed. If you’re doing it for fun, great! But if you want to teach, there is more to it than just getting licensed.
