We are targeting this game to adult women who are the majority of Zumba fitness participants.  However, it’s also a program that many men enjoy.  But for the video game, anyway, that’s where we’re focusing our efforts.  And so I’m actually in the target audience and I can tell you after taking a class and playing the game, it really is fun.   It’s different.  And actually in the video game category dance right now is very hot.”
