Salt-N-Pepa - Push It

How many of you remember this one? Salt-N-Pepa released this rap song over 23 years ago, in March of 1987. Tomorrow, we will introduce a choreography to the Zumba® remix of the song. So instead of hearing "Salt-N-Pepa's here", you'll hear, "Zumba® Fitness here!"

We hope you enjoy it!

ChocQuibTown

One thing I treasure about Zumba® is the music. We learned about ChocQuibTown in ZLife™ Magazine's Summer 2010 issue. For more information visit ZLife™ Magazine.

Check out Choc Quib Town, an Afro-Columbian trio that uplifts the Pacificos culture.

Zumba! Brazil! Caipirinha! Baila!

Um! Dois! Tres!

It's time to introduce a new choreography to the song Caipirinha!

Caipirinha made it's debut at the 2010 Zumba® Conference in late August, so this is as fresh and new as it gets!

Now, we like to learn a little bit about the songs we dance to. After googling caipirinha, we learned that caipirinha is the national drink of Brazil, a mix of lime wedges, sugar, rum and ice. Also, the words of the song are in Portuguese, English, and Arabic, and Hebrew.

Caipirinha is full of moves that'll get your body jumpin', pumpin' and having a fun time.

Check out the work-in-progress choreography and the complete lyrics below, and join us at the Hayti!



LYRICS
Você me faz dançar,
Do jeito que você quer
Assim vai começar
Vem Ca pra Ca
Zumba, Brazil, caipirinha, baila (x2)

Essa menina de Ipanema vai bailando assim
Essa menina de Ipanema quando passa…
Essa menina de Ipanema vai bailando assim
Essa menina de Ipanema quando passa…

Mami the way you move your hips
The music pumping like this
Your body hittin’ the beat
Me vuelve loco…

Mami let me know what you feel
This is so good it’s surreal
If you give it up to me now
Me rompe el coco…

Essa menina de Ipanema vai bailando assim
Essa menina de Ipanema quando passa
Essa menina de Ipanema vai bailando assim
Essa menina de Ipanema quando passa

Mami the way you move your hips
The music pumping like this
Your body hittin’ the beat
Me vuelve loco…

Mami let me know what you feel
This is so good it’s surreal
If you give it up to me now
Me rompe el coco…
