Since the inception of SUMBA in late 2016, the same question has echoed across the rehearsal room many times:

When are we going to do Zumba with SUMBA? I need that in my life!

– every SUMBA member, every rehearsal.

At first, the executive laughed it off… a marching band doesn’t dance, it marches! However, with the announcement of the USU’s PopFest in 2019, an unforgettable opportunity arose. What better excuse to hold the first annual Zumba with SUMBA!

Anxious with excitement, SUMBA members and their friends assembled in the International Student Lounge on September 11. Over the next hour, superstar instructor Diego gave us the time of our lives! By the end, everybody was sweating profusely and had huge smiles across their faces!

Thanks again to the USU and Diego for an unforgettable experience. If you want to hold your own Zumba class, definitely get in contact with Diego!

Update on COVID-19

Hi everyone,

As you are possibly aware, Sydney University sent out recommendations in the last few hours indicating that the University highly recommends all gatherings and events be cancelled or postponed due to the threat of the novel Corona Virus (COVID-19). The World Health Organisation has declared COVID-19 is a global pandemic, and as a result heightened preventative methods are stressed.

Therefore, as a results the SUMBA exec are figuring out what events and rehearsals we may have to cancel this semester. In our discussions, we are taking into account the recommendations of the Uni and the Australian government, and are factoring in actions of other organisations (e.g. the Sydney Royal Easter Show unfortunately deciding to cancel the show this year).

For those who haven't read my other really long post in the 'SUMBA Plays at the Rugby' event, we are no longer playing at the rugby tomorrow (Sat 14th), and will make sure everyone gets their instruments back who needs them...

We will keep you all updated about what decisions are being made, especially about rehearsal next Thursday (right now we are just waiting on more information from the Uni and USU). We're really sorry that new members are not getting the ultimate SUMBA experience, and hope you won't hate us all too much wooo  :(

If you have any questions or comments etc. etc. DO NOT HESITATE IN CONTACTING US to discuss things!
