It's not every day the United Nations plays host to a crowd of sweaty, smiling people wearing sweat pants, but not every day is World Health Day.

Move to Empower, an NGO that aims to empower disadvantaged communities through sport, brought Zumba – a high intensity cardio and dance workout set to Latin music – to the UN, to highlight the benefits of physical fitness.

Lucy Dean was there and has the details.
