Now the city will host its biggest Zumba Fitness party, on March 15. “Zumba Fitness organises these parties around the country to promote health and fitness. It’s open to people of all ages, and we expect between 250 and 300 people at tomorrow’s event,” says Kirti Samant, a Mumbai-based fitness consultant and one of the instructors who will be at the party.
