Zumba is mainly a Latin-inspired dance workout which is also known to be one of the most popular dance exercises which can thus be done by mass groups across the globe. Zumba usually has high-energy to upbeat music where the choreography of the steps can be taken from the dance steps of the song which are also practised or done in a nightclub. It mainly started with a tag line of ‘Ditch the Workout and Join the Party’, which basically focuses on having an energetic time with a good rhythm bringing out all the positivity within one. Therefore, because of its activeness and energy, the dance activity was told to join the rehab centres as well, where patients can also catch up with the energy, activeness, releasing positivity at its best.
