The choreography incorporates 6 different types of dancing--hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, and mambo--as well as squats and lunges.

The great thing about Zumba is that there are nine different levels of age and exertion, so beginners are not overwhelmed. You would have such a great time following the instructor and dancing to all different styles of music that you would not even realize you had been working out until you are exhausted at the end of the hour!
