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

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.
