Not sure where to put htis as it's not health ..

but does anyone do Zumba and what's it like?

I was told not to jog or bounce due to pelvic floor repair ages back, so if it involves star jumps etc forget it- so anyone?

It's very bouncy so I wouldn't recOmmens it unless you've got industrial strength tena-lady pants.

Wouldn't pilates be much more suitable?

You don't have to bounce, you can just walk the steps.

HOWEVER, there are lots of moves & sequences to learn and the classes are all so jam-packed you can never get near the front to see what the instructor is doing, so for these reasons alone I wouldn't bother.

It sounds silly.

It's good - though much jogging and bouncing involved. I've done it a few times at the gym now and it is a really good work out. I'm sure I look like a complete twerp and am rarely in time, but it's fun and I work up a sweat so who cares?!

It's quite fun and indeed you don't have to run and jump, but it would be quite boring then I think. What about Bodypump instead - no jumping whatsoever, but great workout.
