Reporter Cara Santa Maria discovered how a Zumba class can do much more than burn calories; it can unite a group of Latinas who are making their bodies, friendships, and community stronger.

Featuring Interviews With:

  • Dionne Espinoza, professor, Chicano Studies, Liberal Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies at California State University, Los Angeles.
  • Judith Olalde, Zumba student.
