Zumba Fitness: World Party is the latest entry in the Zumba Fitness series of dance and fitness games, it is also the franchise's first 'next-gen' edition. As in previous games in the series, players replicate the dance moves made by the dance characters in the game, the idea being to get fit but do so in a more enjoyable way than traditional exercise routines.
As the name implies, the series is inspired by the Zumba dance fitness system, created by the Colombian dancer Alberto Perez. It combines a number of different active dance styles with aerobic fitness.
World Party features a number of varied dance styles and regimes from all over the world. Some of the dance types found in the game include:
- Brazilian Funk
Each dance and fitness 'class' is headed by a number of dancers, including celebrity Zumba instructors Gina Grant and Kass Martin, and the game will take you on a tour of the world to experience these different dance and music styles, with a number of different backgrounds.
Music from a number of artists from all over the world will provide the motivational backdrop to your Zumba workouts. From pop superstars like Lady GaGa, to breakout artists like ZZ Ward, to classic singers like Herb Alpert, World Party features over 40 different tracks to exercise and dance to.
