Zoumba, Zoomba, and Zamba - Will the real Zumba please stand up?

I was running out of ideas for the Zumba blogs, so I asked online for some questions people had about Zumba.  I'm going to be answering those for the next few weeks.  One of the first questions was "What does Zumba mean? Is it the same as Zoomba?"

So Zumba is sort of a made up word. It has no just sounds fun.

The problem with making up words is that sometimes people get it wrong. I've seen people type it out as Zoomba, Zoumba, Zamba and others.

I get it.  People misspell my name a lot, too.  However, it is Zumba. Z-U-M-B-A not Zoumba, Zoomba, or Zamba.

Zumba is the latin-dance fitness craze that you have seen on TV.  Not sure what those other things are! ha!  If you want more info about Zumba, visit

Here is a funny video that plays on the misunderstandings of Zumba/Zamba


  1. I love when people say it differently before they go for the first time and learn the ways of the Zumba. It's pretty hilarious.

  2. it's funny to see others spell it wrong or say it wrong. but it never really matters, because Zumba's pretty much the best thing ever!
