Zumba the dance/aerobic craze is coming to Casa de Campo….tomorrow!!
Zumba, Zumba, Zumba……everyone is talking about Zumba, it’s sexy, it’s fun and it gets you fit! What’s not to love about this new exercise craze!? Zumba is essentially a type of exercise which incorporates all the best of latin dance; Cumbia, salsa, merengue, mambo, flamenco, cha-cha-cha, Reggaeton, samba, belly dancing, Bhangra, hip-hop, and tango.
Each Zumba class is similar to an aerobics class in that you follow a routine led by an instructor, the difference is that the moves of the routine come from popular latin dances – if like me, you’re a fan of latin music already, chances are you’ll already be familiar with the music and you’ll probably already know at least some of the dance moves.
