Who is Zumba? you ask. Zumba is my latest, sexiest new experience. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Zumba is a Latin dance-inspired fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez in Colombia during the 1990‘s. Zumba‘s choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts, and some Bollywood and belly dance moves. Squats and lunges are also included.
Went with Mocita (my uncle’s wife) who is from Bolivia and Elizabeth who’s from Columbia. Met a couple of women from Peru & Puerto Rico at the club – those latinas can sure teach us gringas a thing or two about dance moves . The class was taught by Mary, a Columbiana in her 30’s (Elizabeth’s daughter) who managed some Shakira like moves that I tried to keep up with. I was a
natural sweating. Well that was how my morning started – how about you?
