Presented by Lead Master Trainer Ai Lee Syarief + Master Trainer Team

Master Class + Opening Session

Kick off the SYNC Summit with a heart-pumping hour-long Master Class, including the newest content taught by Ai Lee Syarief and your team of Master Trainers. After the cooldown, get motivated in a session led by CEO Alberto Perlman and the Home Office. We close out with a session on cueing techniques. See below for details.


Effective cueing is key for keeping your STRONG by Zumba® classes easy to follow and safe. This session focuses on four base cueing techniques you can add to your teaching toolbox to improve your communication skills and the student class experience.

FRIDAY 2:00PM - 5:00PM
Mastering the Base Builders + Kata: Practice and Performance

Mastering the Base Builders

Expand your knowledge and performance of STRONG by Zumba’s foundational moves. This session focuses on the precision of movement from start to finish.

Kata: Practice & Performance

Train like the ancient warriors did — with a kata. This series of detailed movement patterns was used in Japanese martial arts to memorize and perfect movements until they become second nature. You’ll develop muscle memory, improve technique, and cut response time. Get ready for the exhilaration of your final performance!

FRIDAY 6:30PM - 9:00PM

Inspired by the Master Trainers’ iconic boot camp, this session is guaranteed to bring out your competitive spirit. Work with your teammates in tests of speed, agility, strength, and endurance against an opposing team. Compete for glory — plus fun awards and prizes!
