Zombies do Zumba – level 1

14-10-2014 15:00

This news is from England. An event is held there. Around 200 people come. They wear old clothing, and they put fake blood on their faces. They look like zombies.

Then the zombies dance Zumba. They try to set a new world record. Sadly, there is no category in the Guinness Book of World Records for this.

The zombies dance to their favourite songs. For example, they dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, the “Ghostbusters” theme and even “Gangnam Style”.

Difficult words: be held (happen), fake (not real), blood (the red “water” inside your body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
