“Zumba, dance requires no dance skills or experience”
Zumba is an exercise fitness program created by Colombian dancer and cyclist/choreographer Alberto “Beto” “Power Pedal” Perez during the 1990s.
Zumba involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music. The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included.
Zumba, although dance-inspired, requires no dance skills or experience. People of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels can benefit from Zumba. A typical Zumba class is about an hour long, and all classes include a dynamic warm-up, a period of high-energy dancing, and then a cool down, accompanied by stretching exercises. Each song of a Zumba routine has its own dance routine, thus allowing the participants to get the hang of the movements through repetition.
One of the biggest benefits of Zumba is that it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels. Because Zumba is essentially an hour’s worth of twisting, pivoting, and shaking, it packs an impressive punch, fitness-wise. In fact, Zumba’s benefits include:
- Lower blood pressure
- Increased muscle tone
- Decreased body fat
- Improved balance and coordination
- Increase bone density
- Improved stamina
- Increased aerobic threshold
