SHORT HISTORY OF ZUMBA
Alberto Perez, known as BETO, created the Zumba fitness program in
his native country of Colombia in the mid 1990's.
Luckily-and accidentally-one day Beto faced a big challenge that made
him to improvise a new type of class. Dancing the traditional Latin music
and well-known dance movements laid the foundation for the most
popular fitness class in the health club, where Alberto Perez was teaching
at. This incident, connected with a lack of a regular music plate one
day-led to the birth of a new fitness program, then called "Rumbacize".
In 1999 new fitness style was brought to the United States.
As the result of the cooperation between Beto and entrepreneurs Alberto
Perlman and Alberto Aghion- the global wide company has been created
based on Beto 's fitness philosophy.The last, the name of class has been
changed for ZUMBA , that is popular nowadays all over the world!!!

the key to the fun, leading edge, and long-term elelemnts of Zumba.

Zumba Basic Steps are very distinguish. Beto applied a formula to each
basic movement to add variety using a systematic approach. The system
makes it extremely simple for instructors to create choreography that is
fun, easy-to-follow and really effective.
3.CHOREOGRAPHY-as music artists group their message using verse
and chorus along with bridges, tags, and interludes, Zumba dances follow
that same originally-intended format to create dances that also have both
structure, and recognition(repetition).
