Looking for a new way to keep fit this summer? Try Zumba, the aerobic exercise program inspired by the sounds of Latin-American dance music.  Burn calories while grooving to the beats of salsa, merengue and flamenco. Known to resemble a dance party more than a fitness class, Zumba is a great way to workout without hitting the gym.
