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. The Zanga Zanga team has now expanded and includes a diversity of women from all backgrounds and ages. 

Through Zanga Zanga and the hard work of our instructors and clients we have been able to provide employment for women by training them to become freelance instructors and manage their own classes as well as helping thousands of women keep fit in a fun, safe and vibrant atmosphere!

Nora Ali - co-founder

Mona and Nora Ali noticed the lack of fitness classes that provided workout for women only in a safe and positive environment. Also, after the rise of Zumba dance workout, there was a lack of dance fitness classes incorporating specific Arab and African 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 for a MAXIMUM result.  The exercises includes slow and fast rhythms, aerobic dance elements as well as resistance training.

I go to a variety of different classes and I feel challenged here. It's such a fun, vibrant atmosphere. The instructors make sure you are OK and make you sweat. I love the upbeat selection of Arabic/Afrobeats music with the matching dance theme. So if you like dancing. Come and join!

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.

What makes Zanga Zanga® even more unique is the fact that the classes are strictly women only and open to all backgrounds and dance/fitness levels. 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 organising events and classes for women only.
