Zumba: fun trumps technique in dancing calories away

At a recent Zumba class in New York City, fun trumped technique as a merry band of exercisers danced the samba, meringue and rumba to a mix of Latin, hip hop and oldies.

I was reading the story about Zumba and noticed that it makes a few references to merengue (the dance) in the story, but it is spelled meringue which if I’m not mistaken refers to the dessert and not the dance.

Er, yes.

I guess maybe too many meringues could be a reason to merengue the calories away. We corrected: GBU Editor
