Readying for a rigorous workout are members of the Zumba class of the Dancing Arts Club.   Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s.   Zumba involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music. The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo.  Squats and lunges are also included.  In one Zumba class, a person can burn between 500-1000 calories, depending on the energy put forth.
