April Blogging Challenge - 26

Z is for Zumba Dance

Zumba dance was founded by Alberto Perez a Colombian Dancer and Choreographer in the 90s. It is a mixture of hip-hip, salsa, samba, Bollywood, Mambo, martial arts and many other forms. One day as he went to his usual classes he realized he had forgotten his usual tapes of music. Not to be disappointed he tried mixing the tapes he had and made something entirely new and unheard of. It was liked by everyone and became an instant hit in Columbia. Gradually it spread like wild fire and within no time everyone across the globe was dancing to Zumba !

Could anyone every think that a small mistake of forgetting tapes could actually lead to such a wonderfully enjoyable discovery!
