Iran bans Zumba in an effort to cleanse country of Joy
Thursday, 22 June 2017


It's seen as a healthy, fun alternative to more traditional forms of exercise. 

It's also banned in Iran. 

The president of the Iranian Sports Federation made the announcement in an open letter. Why? Well, we're not exactly sure. 

Ali Majdara made it clear that any form of physical activity which necessitates "rhythmic movements or dance in any form" was not legal, therefore it required a complete prohibition. 

However, this decision has not been met favourably on social media, with users expressing their bemusement and slight disdain for the decision.

No rhytm for you, next...
