Zumba is an exercise fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Pérez during the 1990s.
Zumba choreography is composed using
all or some of the sixteen core steps. There are four basic rhythms: salsa, reggaeton, merengue and cumbia
and each basic rhythm has four core steps.
Zumba is a total-body cardio and aerobic workout.
A study shows that a person burns 300 to 900kcal
with an hour-long Zumba exercise.
Zumba is safe for all ages, meaning that anyone from age 0 to 100 can participate in this form of aerobic exercise.
Some of the classes are specifically aimed at elderly people, to help them build strength, improve motion and posture, and socialize.
Besides its high calorie burning benefit, Zumba can help lower the risk of heart disease, reduce the blood pressure and bad cholesterol, and increase your good cholesterol.

I discovered Zumba while working on the Broadway production of School of Rock. We were given a membership at the Equinox across the street and while I really don't love working out in a gym, I noticed they had classes and Zumba was one of them. I believe everyone has the ability to find a workout that they love. When I found Zumba, I found my workout. It is basically an hour long dance party with music you may not normally turn on at home but when it is pumping you just can't help moving your body. I found that I was permanently smiling throughout the entire class and it would only dawn on me every so often that I was actually working out! The proof was the sweat! Join me for Zumba and see if this can be the one workout you finally LOVE!
