RANDOM TIDBITS

Zumba was created by Alberto "Beto" Perez, an aerobics instructor in Cali, Colombia, when he forgot his workout music for a class. He improvised with some salsa and merengue tapes he happened to have in his backpack, and the class was an instant hit!

***

At first, Perez conducted nine to 10 classes a week, and then it took off in Bogota, Colombia. When he took Zumba to the US, it didn't catch on at first. However, one fitness director in Miami finally gave him a chance and by the end of the class, the room was full. The rest is history!

***

The word Zumba is Colombian slang for buzz like a bee or move very fast.

***

Even though Zumba is a relatively new fitness craze, it's actually been around since the mid-90s.

***

The dance steps in Zumba are inspired by a wide array of musical influences, including cumbia, salsa, merengue, mambo, flamenco, chachacha, reggaeton, soca, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, hip hop, axe music, and tango.

***

It is estimated that participants in a Zumba class can burn anywhere between 500-1,000 calories in one hour, although this depends on the individual and the level of exertion.
