Watch 12,975 People Break The Record For World's Largest Zumba Class

Written by Emi Boscamp

On Sunday, the streets of Mandaluyong (a suburb of Manila, in the Philippines) were flooded by a sea of gold — or, you know, a bunch of yellow-shirted people all shaking their hips in unison.

Exactly 12,975 people gathered for the largest-ever Zumba class held in a single venue, reports BBC. They danced to high-tempo music continuously for 30 minutes.

The previous record — held by the city of Cebu, also in the Philippines — was 8,232. That means the new record beat the previous attempt by more than 4,000 people.

Zumba is a dance-fitness program that combines aerobics with salsa, samba, and hip-hop. In other words: it's a really fun way to get your sweat on. As you can see in the video below, these record-breakers had a great time doing it.
