There is music in the air and a crowd of people dancing to the tunes of Latin music with fast and slow rhythms, having fun and forgetting all the anxiety. Last but not the least- the crucial part which is burning calories along with it. Sounds like a bizarre dream, isn’t it? But this is true and it’s called Zumba dance. Zumba dance is a Latin fitness trend that has spread all over America and its roots are reaching London.
People are bored to tears visiting the same routine gyms and aerobics classes. They need something exciting that will not only help them to shed their fats but also give a one and the same joy to their hearts. There is nothing on a par with dancing to the tunes and losing weight. So if you are ready to bring the down the floor and be in shape than Zumba dance is your cup of tea.
It is wisely said sometimes experiments give rise to blessings. In mid nineties, when a aerobics dance teacher Beto Perez in Columbia was driving down to his aerobics class and grasped the fact that he had forgotten his usual tapes, spontaneously he mixed his tapes from his backpack and created music- traditional Latin salsa and meringue. He realized that he had given birth to a new form of music that merged aerobics dance with Latin music. That day his class got an energetic punch and they gave a thumb up to this new fitness trend – Zumba Fitness. He started this trend in US and this dance has spread in 35 countries. Since that day there is no looking behind and Zumba Fitness has crowned the world’s biggest and triumphant dance-fitness program.
In Zumba Fitness you dance to the slow and fast rhythms of the music that originates from dances like salsa, meringue, samba, hip hop music and tang. It’s a cardio based workout. Zumba Fitness works on theory that is straightforward – lose calories in dancing fun way. The fun part about this fitness trend is that there is no need to learn any dance moves. Just follow the wild music and let you hair fall and let the music shake your body and mind. You hardly get a thought that you are working out. If a person pierces in the class tired and exhausted the music and the dance will bring him back to life.
