Based on the global dance-fitness brand that pioneered “exercise in disguise,” Zumba® Kids brings kids aged 7 to 12 together to play and express themselves with routines and activities custom-designed for them. Kids can build self-confidence and discover new rhythms as they move to over 20 different dance styles—more than any other kids game! With 170 million children under 18 now estimated to be overweight*, Zumba® Kids is an ideal solution to get kids off the couch with motion-based fun that helps them stay healthy and fit.
“Zumba® Kids makes exercising fun and is a step in the right direction toward combating and preventing childhood obesity,” said Alberto Perlman, co-founder and CEO of Zumba® Fitness. “With millions of children facing weight issues around the world, we are introducing a high-energy video game to the market that we hope will help decrease the global obesity epidemic and provide kids with a new opportunity to move and get fit. It’s the perfect opportunity to replace snacking on chips and soda with something healthy and fun.”
Additional Zumba® Kids features include:
