9 Kinds of Zumba Dance Workouts to Choose From


Zumba is a dance fitness class. It appeals primarily to a female audience. Especially during the peak of its popularity between roughly 2005 and 2015, people of all ages and dance abilities flocked to the class. The sole reason was that the choreography is more-or-less accessible to those with two left feet.
