Jumping into the game's main World Tour mode, you'll be able to pick from seven different destinations: Brazil, the Caribbean, Europe, Hawai'i, India, Los Angeles, and Puerto Rico. Each area is composed of six different songs to dance through in sequence, with celebrity Zumba instructors to lead you through the choreographed cardio. Depending on how in-sync with the instructor you are - as measured by the Wiimote in the included hip-mounted Zumba belt - you'll earn a "Nice", "Hot", or "Zumba!" rating for each step, which count towards five possible stars for each song. In a time-honoured gaming tradition that PaRappa would be proud of, the better you dance, the more interesting the background becomes: racking up "Zumba" ratings will add dancers, colours, effects, and animations to the already-lively backdrops behind your instructors. Hawai'i's shores see rainbows and lava flows, India's mandala dance-floor blooms with lotus flowers and pyrotechnic palaces, and Europe's castle backdrop goes Van Gogh with a colourful night sky straight out of Soda Jungle.
True to its party animal spirit, World Party supports up to four dancers in every mode, provided you've got a Wii Remote for each player. Ideally, everyone would have their own Zumba belt as well - about $10 a pop at the time of writing - but in practice we found placing the remote in a front pocket to work well enough. It's a bit less accurate and less comfortable than using the belt, however, so if you're hoping to host some serious Zumba sessions, it's worth factoring in the cost of extra belts. The same goes for digital dancers planning to pick up World Party on the eShop, of course - no belt download code is included.

The included Zumba belt allows you to strap the Wii Remote to your waist and turn the motions of your hips into on-screen actions as you enjoy more than 30 Zumba routines. And with multiple modes of play that can accommodate up to four players in cooperative and competitive Zumba sessions, the party is open to everyone!
Any other uses for the belt? Well, if you (and if you don’t, you should) then the Zumba belt makes a nice nunchuck holder. And the belt even has reflective piping around the pocket, so I suppose you could go for an evening walk in it, with your keys or cell phone in the pocket. Now that’s an exergaming fashion statement.
