WVVA News - The exercise that has been sweeping the Two Virginias by storm - Zumba. The highly-paced dancing workout that is fun from start to finish.

"It is upbeat, its fun, you are just having a great time. You are dancing, you don't even know you are working out, it is like a party."

And for one group in McDowell County, it is more than just a party.

"This is called a Zumba for the Cure or a 'Party in Pink'. We have encouraged all of our gals tonight, we do not have any guys tonight to wear pink. And celebrate health awareness as far as cancer is concerned."

"This is just something new. I figured if you can get people into zumba and get people aware of zumba and getting the two together you are promoting fitness and being health conscious. Go to a doctor, just get checked."

Even though everyone in the class was female, you don't have to be to help out this great cause, and for that matter even know how to zumba.

"We figured if we have the fun aspect of it and get people to come, and then we can raise awareness and raise some money while we are at it. But we have some really good stories about people who have made some huge strides in their fitness journey as far as doing zumba."

So whether it is for breast cancer or to get a fun workout, give it a try, you never know, you just might like it.
