A fitness instructor with a passion for Zumba has started a class for the deaf community.

Kevin d’Odemont, 31, a qualified fitness trainer and Zumba instructor said: “I have a friend called Donna who is deaf. I said I would love to learn sign language so I went to the Deaf Connexions centre in Norwich.”

His visit to the centre led to him offering to teach a free Zumba session to deaf people.

Belgian-born Mr d’Odemont, who lives in Moorgate in Dereham said: “It’s very unusual and the people are excited. They copy me as it is very visual. Some of them can hear a tiny bit of music and some are a little bit blind. The bass must be as high as possible so they can feel the vibrations.

“I think this is the first time anyone has done this.”
