Olorosisimo,LPTGroup 4Course FacilitatorHISTORY OF ZUMBAWHAT IS ZUMBA?Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin andinternational music with dance moves. Zumba routinesincorporate interval training — alternating fast and slowrhythms — to help improve cardiovascular fitness.It is a high-energy form of fitness with a combinationofdance and aerobics fitness moves that help to shed weight, elevate mood, and provide ahighly positive and supportive fitness/exercise environment. The classes are typicallypracticed with Latin dance music, but in recent times that is changing. Most of the dancemoves that are taught in Zumba include some element of Merengue, salsa, mambo, flamenco,cumbia, rumba, and hip hop.HOW WAS ZUMBA CREATED?Alberto Perez had an insatiable passion for Latin music, dance rhythm, and high-energy fitness. In 1988, once he had hosted that first “accidental” class, he felt as if he had hit
on something great. And of course, he had. This was proven by Shakira’s interest in him as achoreographer. It didn’t stop there, though.Beto wanted to create fitness classes that are an exceptional amount of fun but are alsoextremely effective too. He aimed to create fitness classes with a party-like vibe and positiveinfluence. And he wanted these classes to be available to everyone,regardless of their age and current fitness level.Zumba was created “by accident” by a 28- year oldColombian aerobics instructor,Alberto “Beto” Perez, in 1988. Itis said that when Perez forgot his aerobics music tapes for a class,he improvised by using his salsa and merengue tapes from his car,and proceeded to teach a first-time-ever dance aerobics class. ThusZumba was born- even though it was only named several yearslaterALBERTO “BETO” PEREZ TAKES ZUMBA TO MIAMIIn 1999, Perez moved to Miami in search for a new life with bigger and betteropportunities. His first act of business was to start teaching his aerobic dance class in his newneighborhood. The first fitness center he approached was the Williams Island Fitness Center,where he got the director, Brenda Anderson, to agree to promote his aerobic dance routine.In 2002 they formed a trio that set out to make their new dance class betterknown-and it really worked. The name Zumba comes from Spanish word “ Zumbar”, whichmeans “to buzz”. It demonstrates (or sounds like) the fun, high-energy, fitness class that it islinked to.
