Zumba for a Cause and Dance For Pink against Breast Cancer

Zumba has been around for a while and has gained quite a bit of momentum in Goa over the last few years. Created by Colombian dancer and cyclist/choreographer Alberto “Beto” “Power Pedal” Perez during the 1990’s in Cali, Colombia, this program is not only fun but also beneficial in helping keep fit. Zumba is a trademark owned by Zumba Fitness, LLC.

A more fun version of keeping fit means it involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music. More often than not, sessions are performed to Latin American music. The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included. In fact, Zumba is so popular that approximately 15 million people take weekly classes in over 180 countries across the globe.

Zumba classes are typically about an hour long and are taught by instructors licensed by Zumba Fitness, LLC. In one class, a person can burn between 500-1000 calories, depending on the energy put forth. However if one has a back or a knee problem, it’s best to avoid practicing this exercise regime. It will only aggravate the problem.
