Iran arrests six for dancing Zumba

Iran has arrested six people for teaching Zumba classes to children, accusing them of trying to “change lifestyles” in the Islamic Republic.

The group of four men and two women were charged over their dancing and for not adhering to the country’s strict hijab dress code.

“The members of a network teaching and filming Western dances have been identified and arrested,” said Hamid Damghani, an official with the Revolutionary Guards.
