For those who heard about Zumba and want to know more about it, read on…
ZUMBA~!~! A Colombian dance fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s.
Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements.Zumba’s choreography incorporates Hip Hop, Soca, Samba, Salsa, Merengue, Mambo, Martial arts, and some Bollywood and Belly dance moves. Squats and Lunges are also included. There are 12 million people taking weekly Zumba classes in over 110,000 locations across more than 126 countries.
Zumba sessions are typically about an hour long and are taught by licensed instructors. The exercises include music with fast and slow rhythms, as well as resistance training. The music comes from the following dance styles: Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Mambo, Flamenco, Chachacha, Reggaeton, Soca, Samba, Belly dancing, Bhangra, Hip Hop, Axé and Tango. There are eight different types of classes for different levels of age and exertion. These include Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning, Aqua Zumba, Zumbatomic, Zumba in the circuit, Zumba Gold-Toning and Zumba Sentao. Zumba Gold mainly targets the older population. It is specifically designed to the needs of the elderly and includes the same kind of music as the Zumba fitness party class. Zumba Toning is for the people who do their workouts with toning sticks. Zumba Toning will target the abs, thighs, arms, and other areas. Aqua Zumba is Zumba in a swimming pool. Zumba in the circuit is the dance combined with circuit training.
Because the Zumba program is low-impact, it is safe for all ages. At least some of the classes are specifically aimed at elderly people, which can help them to build strength, improve motion and posture, and socialize. A typical Zumba session burns between 500 and 1000 calories.
Many celebrities adopted Zumba all over the world. Jennifer Lopez and Kirstie Alley are known to take Zumba classes as part of their workout routines,[while Jackie Chan has been caught on video while performing the exercises.
