Flowing movements with arms and hips are just part of the workout as well as jumps and turns.

Where does Zumba come from?
    Responsible for the fitness trend of the Colombian- born choreographer Beto Perez. The idea of ​​combining elements of fitness and dance was made during a session of aerobics.
