  • I did Zumba and danced at multiple weddings while pregnant. Like anything else, don't over exert yourself and you should be fine.

  • I did ballroom dance through my entire pregnancy. 
  • I've danced at special events and I did a Zumba class last night. I just move as much as I can and if something is uncomfortable or causes a cramp, I slow it down.
  • If you feel fine doing it, go for it. I did Zumba until halfway into my first pregnancy and only stopped because it was causing ligament pain, otherwise I would've continued. I had to find other things to do instead.

  • I did classical ballet and modern until 34 weeks,but I've been dancing a long time. I'm not sure if take up something new while pregnant.
  • I did zumba until 9 months but I had been doing zumba previously. Just avoid jumping.
