"We will dance and do sports together"

Démonstration de Zumba à Choulex

extrait d'un article parue dans le journal "Tribune Rives-Lac" du lundi 12 mars 2012

“Excellent pour la santé, le conditionnement physique apparaît souvent comme un peu rebutant, voire même barbant. La démonstration de Zumba, proposée à la salle polyvalente de Choulex par Marianne Leber et une quarantaine de ses élèves, prouve tout le contraire.

Coquettement vêtues de petites robes et coiffées de chapeaux melon ou de casquettes un peu "canailles", les souriantes jeunes femmes ont montré qu'on peut faire du sport, non seulement sans en avoir l'air, mais en se faisant plaisir. Plusieurs chorégraphies pleines d'énergie, inspirées de pas de danse latino et effectuées sur des musiques rythmées et entraînantes, telles la samba, le merengue ou le cha-cha-cha, ont mis les fourmis dans les jambes du public venu en nombre, les bouts de chou n'étant pas en reste. Certes, ces chorégraphies ne s'acquièrent pas d'emblée, les cours de Marianne sont souvent ponctués de grands éclats de rire généraux quand des élèves se trompent et se retrouvent à contresens du groupe, mais personne ne juge, chacune progresse à son rythme et le plaisir ne tarde pas. La personnalité de Marianne est aussi pour beaucoup dans la réussite de son enseignement, gaie, chaleureuse et aussi un peu taquine, elle transmet sa belle énergie et à la fin du cours, toutes se retrouvent en nage, mais ravies.

What's this?

ZUMBA is in the air !

It's dynamic... exciting... joyful... effective...

Zumba fitness helps you to keep you fit and to maintain your vitality and this is in very amusing way!

A Zumba session will give you lots of energy and a feeling of well-being. It's like being on holiday, somewhere far away in a hot country...

Zumba was created through the passion of one man (Béto) for latin music, rhythms of exotic dance and physical culture. His desire was that Zumba classes should be attractive to everybody and not only to already trained and well coordinated people. Everybody, no matter his physical level, should be able to participate. In fact, despite that it is quiet cardio: Each one can perfectly adapt the power of each movement to its own physical capacity.

In a few words, Zumba is a combination of dancing and exercising, created to transform "working out" into a joyful experience.

A way to exercise without that it looks like....

Who is it?


my name is Marianne Leber.

One day, I discovered " Zumba" and fell in love with this original concept. What a pleasure to work out like this!

Well, I completed the training for "Zumba instructor" in 2010. Since then, I give weekly Zumba classes at different places at Rive gauche ( left side of the lake).

By profession I am potter. I am giving pottery since more than 17 years in Collonge-Bellerive. My web site url is www.histoiredeterre.ch
