Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Zumba® takes the work out of workout. You will be burning tons of calories by dancing to great music with fun moves and mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Dress to work out. All attendees need to register.
