More than 12 million people across the globe opt for Zumba classes each year. The figures are quite enough to show how popular this workout type is. Created by dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez, Zumba is a unique mix of dance forms such as salsa, cumbia, and merengue. You may be surprised to know that when Alberto first started teaching Zumba, he actually named it Rumbacize.
Rumbacize is again taken from the Spanish word “Rumba” which means party. And true to the original name, Zumba meets are now turning into parties.
With everyone worn down by the usual workout in gyms and fitness classes, the organizers are now looking for new and innovative ways to make great health. The result of one such endeavour is the Zumba party.
The trendy pop tunes that are usually used in Zumba classes are in themselves enough to set the mood for the occasion. Added to that, the organisers of the Zumba party usually call in DJs and add peppy lighting to further spice things up.
Why Zumba Party?
Attending a Zumba party has its own unique advantages that you may not find in a gym or other such places. The first advantage being that Zumba parties are unlimited fun. The joy that you experience in a Zumba party is incomparable to any other workout type.
Further, when you are surrounded by like-minded people, you feel more encouraged to meet your fitness goals.
