Zombies do Zumba – level 2

14-10-2014 15:00

Over 200 dancers took part in an event in England. They put on old clothing, fake blood, and painted their faces white to look like zombies.

They tried to set a new world record for the largest Zumba class with zombie dancers. Sadly, the Guinness World Record doesn’t currently have a category for this, so the participants must wait to see if they establish the category.

They danced to zombie favourites like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”, the “Ghostbusters” theme and even Gangnam Style.

Difficult words: participant (a person who takes part in something), establish (create), favourite (something someone likes).

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