Zanga Zanga® dance fitness program was co-founded by two sisters and fitness enthusiasts Mona and Nora Ali in the United Kingdom, Luton, in 2014. ZANGA ZANGA is a trademark owned by Zanga Zanga Fitness Ltd, currently holding classes in the UK and expanding.
In 2014, Mona and Nora created Zanga Zanga® classes, after noticing the lack of fitness classes incorporating Oriental and African dances. The health benefits from ancient Dances originating in Africa and the Middle East are immense, and to celebrate them, they decided to design the first of it's kind cardio-based exercise classes using traditional Dances.
Zanga Zanga® workout classes use a combination of dances from countries in the Middle East, as well as North and Central Africa, such as folkloric dances, line dances and afrobeats together with aerobic elements and body weight exercises like squats and lunges.
What makes Zanga Zanga® even more unique is the fact that the classes are strictly women only. Zanga Zanga® routines also use music that contains drum beats and slightly electronical sounds, making them the only fitness program that is an alternative for Muslim women in the United Kingdom. Zanga Zanga® also hold annual fundraising events and work for community cohesion by organizing events and classes for all women of color.
The name "Zanga Zanga" originates from the North African Arabic dialect which means 'neighbourhood, neighbourhood', aspiring for Zanga Zanga classes to be available in every city and neighborhood around the globe.
Zanga Zanga® classes are usually an hour long and are taught by instructors licensed by Zanga Zanga fitness ltd. The exercises includes slow and fast rhythms, aerobic dance elements as well as resistance training.
