Zumba was originated by a Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez in early 2000’s. Zumba is an infusion of Latin-Style dances incorporating many other styles focusing on the work out aspect of dance rather than technique. This allows people to focus less on detail and more on having fun. Zumba does not emphasize on getting the craft right, instead it’s a time to enjoy yourself. If want to jump, then jump, there are no rules. If you miss a move you are not completely lost. Its just about having fun and getting a workout.
