Back in the late 1990s, a Colombian dancer and choreographer by the name of Alberto "Beto" Perez rocked up to teach an aerobics class and realised he'd forgotten his music. Armed with a cassette tape of traditional Latin, Salsa and Merengue music, Beto adapted the class to the non-traditional aerobics music.
The result formed the essence of what Zumba® Fitness is today - a dance fitness class using Latin and World rhythms. By taking the "work" out of workout, Zumba® classes are now attended by 15 million people across 180 countries in 200,000 locations.
Everybody has heard of Zumba and you've probably tried at least one class, but did you know there's more than one type of Zumba class?
The original Zumba® class started the dance-fitness revolution but now there's so much more to explore. Would you believe there are over TEN Zumba specialty classes?
