This winter, Zumba® created a brand new e-learning course called Cue Like A Pro. What's so great about this course, besides the fact that the instructor is the amazing Steve Boedt, is that he really breaks down cueing in a way that is totally understandable and applicable. Cueing isn't something that comes naturally to most instructors. Most of us have to work at it, by learning the cues while learning the choreo so it sticks in the brain.
Due to COVID-19 and all of us being stuck at home, Zumba® gave all of the instructors this course, for FREE (!). It was a treat and made being stuck at home with no way to teach classes a little more bearable. I recommend that every instructor take this as once you pass, you will have the materials and videos to reference as you work toward becoming better at cueing and therefore, a better instructor.
I enjoyed the Zumba® Pro Skills Training. It was great to take a step back and work on the most essential skills as an group fitness instructor, cueing and leading. Cueing helps the students follow you and if they can't follow you, they won't want to come back to class. This is something I plan to continually work on as I move forward. You can never get enough practice time in cueing as a fitness instructor. This class was taught by ZES Lucretia Venosta
