The story of Zumba begins with an accident that seems too good to be true. Back in the '90s in Colombia, dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez was teaching an aerobics class and he forgot his regular music. So he reached into his backpack and pulled out tapes of salsa and merengue. Founded in 2001, Zumba Fitness® is a worldwide lifestyle that fuses fitness, entertainment and culture into an invigorating dance-fitness sensation! Zumba® exercise classes are ” fitness-parties ” that blend upbeat world rhythms with easy-to-follow choreography, for a total-body workout that feels like a celebration.
Zumba® has become a worldwide fitness phenomenon. By 2007, the Zumba® program had 10,000 instructors, was available in over 30 countries, and had almost a million and a half people taking Zumba® classes on a weekly basis….COME BE PART OF THE PHENOMENON!!
