Let's do this: #ZBeatCon (and GIVEAWAY!)

I am so, SO bummed that I can't go to the Zumba convention in Orlando this week. I was super close to registering, but decided I couldn't swing both the convention and a family vacation in the same week... and family vacation won (hi, mom!).

I hemmed and hawed about what to post today... then it hit me. The purpose of the convention is to improve your practice and network with other ZINs, right? And you can do that from anywhere, RIGHT?

Connect, learn, grow, and celebrate your ZINness in honor of the convention, from where ever you are! Between now and Sunday, #ZBeatCon is your way to participate. Below are some ideas for ways you can get involved - but the possibilities are endless. Use the hashtag #ZBeatCon on Facebook or Twitter to share how you're participating and inspire others!
  • Dust off your B1 DVD and perfect your technique
  • Scour YouTube to find new choreo, like these awesome numbers
  • Do a special class for your regulars - like a 90 minute master class or a playlist of all pop songs
  • Dance along to some clips from previous conferences, like these from  Pitbull and Mara
  • Sign up for a local ZJ's Jam Session
  • Splurge on a gift for yourself from the Zumba shop (and use affiliate code TheZBeat to get 10% off!)
  • Participate in a new class and get to know a fellow ZIN
  • Watch ZIN TV and share your favorite clips
Need one more reason to participate? One lucky #ZBeatCon participant will be selected to win a Z Beat Swag Bag! Just tweet or post on Facebook about how you're participating by 8pm EST on Sunday, and be sure you don't delete your post before then. (See the fine print below.)

PS - Follow me @TheZBeat for updates on #ZBeatCon!
PPS - If you're physically going to the convention, I'm really happy for you, I swear. Check out this article from Z Life for tips on having a great convention. Have a great time!

The fine print: No purchase necessary. To participate, use the hashtag #ZBeatCon on 
Facebook or Twitter by 8/17 at 8pm EST. Each participant receives one entry, regardless of the number of times he/she uses the hashtag. All participants will be assigned a random number and a winning number will be selected using Random.com. Winners may live anywhere, but must produce a valid address for shipment. The Z Beat is not responsible for lost or deleted entries, and will make final decisions regarding disputes. Winner will be notified by Facebook or Twitter by 8/20. 


  1. Jen- I am at the conference, but have been reading your posts. I told my roommate about your monday profile blog.. She's a Zin in ohio who teaches 4 aqua classes a week and has a fantastic before and after picture of her 150 lbs heavier before Zumba. Her name is Debra Marshall. She's going to get in touch with you.

  2. That would be great, thanks Jacquline!
