Zumba, a Latin-based fitness program, moves you to a groove, bounces you to a beat and gets you in shape. Over the past decade, it has swept into fitness centers and gyms around the globe. On Feb. 1, it came to Wright State in the form of Zumbathon.

Zumbathon brought students, staff and faculty together to dance and donate. Participants were to bring canned goods and dry food for Wright State’s Friendship Food Party.

“We were also dancing to fight heart disease,” said Jennifer Turpin, assistant director of fitness and wellness. February is the American Heart Association’s Heart Health Month. Participants and dancers showed their support by wearing red.

Student reporter Reilly Dixon hit the scene to get some healthy heart tips and to dance until he dropped.
