While it is often categorized as a dance, it is also a workout routine that people of all ages can do to keep fit. With its intense energetic and dynamic moves, Zumba is bound to capture the attention of anyone who is involved in it. Just like you would walk into an aerobics class and perform well without having been there before, participating in a session of Zumba does not need previous experience in dance or fitness.
Origin of Zumba
It may appear that Zumba borrows too much from Latin rhythms such as merengue, salsa, samba, cumbia, and mambo and it is quite true. Zumba is a fitness program that was adapted from already existing rhythms by Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s. At one time, when he was a Colombian dancer and also a dance choreographer, he forgot to carry an aerobics instructor tape to one of his classes. Instead of cancelling the class, he sat in his car for a little while and listened to non-traditional salsa and merengue music which he used to come up with a danceable routine.
Today Zumba is used widely as a home fitness routine in videos after Aberto moved to the United States and partnered with two of his childhood friends, Alberto Perlman and Alberto Aghion.
While the name of the dance does not mean anything in particular, it has come to be associated with intense Latin traditional music and the corresponding physical regime.
Consistent participation in Zumba will result in a good posture, enhanced muscle coordination, flexibility and self-esteem. This is in addition to the obvious outcome of excellent cardiovascular activity and toned muscles obtained from physical workout. Zumba classes or sessions usually last for about an hour and all instructors offering the classes must be licensed by the Zumba Fitness, LLC. Over the course of the dance session, participants will be involved in exercises in response to both fast and slow music in addition to resistance training. Different types of classes totaling up to 9 are designed to accommodate the needs of different categories of people.
