Zumba though wasn't the only Latin influence on the fourth hour today. In fact, the entire show was centered around Girls Gone Latina.

It featured various Latin-themed segments, including TODAY's Sara Haines learning how to salsa, rapper Pitbull talking about his collaboration with Marc Anthony, a special Latin "Who Knew" and delicious Latin-inspired dishes courtesy of chef Govind Armstrong.

And Zumba isn't just for young people. Watch this video from Amy Robach featuring those in their golden years dancing along.
