Zumba Instructors Cause Earthquake by Dancing
On Saturday Feb 16th, 2013 over 1000 Zumba instructors got together from all over the world for their annual convention at the Los Angeles convention center. While dancing in unison during a class, the movements were so intense that they caused an earthquake like effect on the building. The floor and ceiling was heaving and bouncing around. And the walls were moving back and forth like waves. Eventually, the walls began to crack and the safety concerns were so grand that they were forced to evacuate the room. Structural engineers were called in to assess the damage to the building.
