Zumba is a workout phenomenon. Started by Colombian Beto Perez, the dance fitness experience has risen to a whole new level – and has elevated Latino stars with its climb to the top. From Pitbull and Don Omar to Daddy Yankee and Paulina Rubio, America is moving its bodies to Latin artists – and we love that! Here are a few of our favorite Zumba-centric songs to get you moving:
