Shut up and dance! Just kidding—we actually like the noise!

To celebrate the department's missions, activity, and most importantly, our Campus Recreation members, we hold one or two Zumbathons a year. These events are free and are taught by certified instructors. They're meant to be fun, inclusive and high-energy!

In addition, the Zumbathon events usually partner with Student Health and Counseling Services–Health Education and Promotion and the UC Davis Body Project to help spotlight campaigns that promote positive body image!

The NEXT UPCOMING Zumbathon scheduled is:

  • Date: Thursday, November 14, 2019
  • Time: 5:30–7:30 p.m.
  • Location: ARC Multi-Activity Court (MAC Gym)
  • Price: FREE to all Campus Rec Students/Members (non-members may join by purchasing a day pass)


What should I wear?

Any kind of workout attire works. Loose, breathable, allows you to move, etc. You'll also need supportive closed-toe athletic shoes. It's a safety thing.

Do I need dance experience?

Nope! Come as you are and have a good time! This is not a skills class. It's a dance party! 

Do I need to purchase a GX pass?

Nope! This event is free. Just a note to GX pass owners though...some of our regularly scheduled classes that evening will be canceled for the sake of the event. Please stay tuned.

Can non-CR members attend?

Yes, but they will need to purchase a day pass to attend. Please stop at the membership desk when you enter the ARC.

Where is the MAC?

The Multi-Activity Court is located on the west end of the facility, at the back of the ARC on your left after you swipe in. 

Do I need to bring anything?

We suggest bringing water and a towel. If you plan to move the whole two hours, a light snack would help, too!  

May I come late?

Of course! Just make sure you warm up when you arrive as the class will already be underway. Please don't jump right in—that's hard on your body!
