  • Our local Y has Zumba classes for KIDS! My friend's 8 year-old takes the class. The mom described it as latin-line dancing. LOL
    I have no idea if it "works" but the kids version sound like fun. I'm thinking of sign my kids up for it as well.

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE going to Zumba classes. It tones you SOOO fast. It's definitely a great work out. And I have heard that (depending on your instructor) that you can easily burn 500 cals/day in a 1 hr. long Zumba class
