I have it. I have used it a couple times - glad no one had a video camera handy. I am taking a zumba class now, have improved, and, sorry but I have not gone back to try zumba with the wii to see how it compares with the hour-long class that I take. The hour-long class is definitely a high-aerobic workout, although of course participants have a lot of leeway in how high to step, how much bounce to add, how hard to punch the arms, etc.
I love zumba. to me it is fun, not exercise. Really, anything that gets me up out of my chair and moving is a good thing.
When I can't fit in the 3-times-a-week zumba class, I'll get back to my zumba wii. From what I've seen with it, I'm sure I'll be able to get a good aerobic workout.
When I tried it out, I chose a 20-minute workout. I don't know if there are any hour-long workouts. Maybe someone else knows that. 3 20-minute workouts would be ok, but an hour-long one would have a warm-up, sustained high aerobic, then a cool-down. Doing 3 20-minute sessions will not give a long sustained high-energy session.
