I see that Steppin' Time, YMCA and Curves (?) all have Zumba. (if all still current)

..

I go to Steppin Time and love the small class sizes. They have evening and weekend classes that work with my schedule. I get an awesome workout there.  
I have done Zumba through Curves and find it not as intense. It's a good workout for some more idle middle age women IMHO. It combines the circut with the Zumba. You would have to pay to sign up to Curves too.  
I have never been to the Y, but I've heard they get anywhere from 80-130 participants in one class.  
I guess it depends if you want to blend in or not and how intense you want your workout to be.

Instructors

In my opinion, Mattie Braden is the best of all the instructors. She teaches at Brandon School of Dance, Steppin Time, the Y, Curves, and BU.  
 
I agree - Curves is lower intensity... it's harder because you don't have a ton of room to move so it has to lower intensity... but still a good workout for the ladies at curves (I hope!)

Also

Dance Images is also offering Zumba classes this year. They have daytime and evening & weekend classes available. Class sizes there are also on the smaller size so you can always see what's going on.

the Y

I went did zumba at the Y and found it a good workout, if you try hard, you get a harder workout, if you dont, then its not that challenging. I did go while in my first 2 trimesters of my last pregnancy and could keep up. I found that later in the week the class sizes were a little smaller, but yes there always was alot of people no matter what.

Y

I go to Zumba at the Y sometimes and it's a good work out, but like some have said the classes can get pretty large. It seems like the Monday and Wednesday evening classes are usually the biggest. I have gone on Friday and Saturday morning though and the numbers are much smaller then. You can get a better work out when it's less crowded and you have more space to move around in.
