What is Zumba?

Created during the 1990’s by Columbian dancer, Alberto Perez, when he forgot an aerobics tape, Alberto went back to his car, listened to music, and improvised a class using the non-traditional salsa and merengue music. After finding success in Columbia, Alberto moved to the US in 2001 and produced the first demo for the Zumba fitness program.
