ZUMBA® is a dance fitness program inspired by Latin American dance. It was created by dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez in the nineties in Colombia. ZUMBA® is considered a secret workout because focus is placed on fun while moving and the effort is hardly noticed. ZUMBA® creates a party atmosphere that animates and motivates.

Content and Objectives
ZUMBA® is packed with firey, easy-to-learn steps and movements, pulsating Latin American and international rhythms, and sequences that enter your veins, which improve your rhythmic and balance ability on the side. It contains elements from dance forms like merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, flamenco, tango, and samba. Due to the changes from more and less intensive and quicker and slower rhythms, the training resembles interval training. It trains endurance and muscle endurance and promotes fat burning. The focus of every ZUMBA® is the fun moving your body in a group.
To participate you must bring a separate, clean pair of gym shoes. Please bring something to drink.
