“Dance like no one is watching.” That’s some solid life advice right there. And it’s one thing to dance like no one is watching in the comfort of your home, but have you ever tried it in a room full of strangers, with mirrors on all sides? That, right there, is called Zumba. And it’s a fitness craze that has been sweeping the nation for nearly twenty years.
If you’ve been to a Zumba class, you get it. It’s a little nerve wracking at first, the thought of being willing to “shake what your momma gave ya” in front of strangers can scare some away. But, for those willing to stick out a few songs, this fast paced dance workout becomes a serious obsession, and participants can burn upwards of 500 calories in a single class. A workout that feels more like a party? What’s not to love about that?!
