    Introduction: Grip strength is the force applied by the hand to pull on or suspend from objects and is widely used for estimating whole body strength. It is the predictor of numerous forms of muscular strength - including both upper and lower body absolute muscular strength and muscular endurance. The study aims to evaluate the handgrip strength in Zumba dancers. Materials and Methods: Handgrip strength is determined using handgrip dynamometer. 34 people were considered for the study. The test is administered on the right and left hand twice, taking the highest of each number and adding them together. The results are measured in kilograms. Results: About 57% of people have very good handgrip strength. 11% of people have excellent handgrip strength, 11% of people have average handgrip strength, 5% of people have their handgrip strength above average, 5% of people have their handgrip strength below average, and 11% have very poor handgrip strength. Conclusion: The study concludes that Zumba dancers had very good muscle strength determined by handgrip strength.
