Feel the music!

So you know how I love music and dancing?

Oh you didn't know that?

Well I do.

And I have found the perfect exercise for me!

ZUMBA!

Here is a fun video. This is one of the songs that we dance to in class. Artists are actually creating music just for Zumba!



So have you heard of it? It's really growing in popularity right now.

A friend of mine teaches a class in town and she invited me to come along about two months ago.

I now go to four classes a week...and if they had classes on monday and friday, i'd go then as well.

I LOVE IT!

It's basically just dancing for an hour. But really, really energetic dancing. Mostly Latin style with hiphop, belling dancing, bollywood and African moves thrown in for fun.

I have never sweated so hard in my life. And had so much fun! The hour goes by in a flash.

And anyone can do it. No dance experience needed. You just have to let loose and have fun. It took me a few times before I felt comfortable but it's much better now. I'm definitely the chubbiest person in class...but everyone is just there having a great time so i don't feel too self-conscious.

I encourage you all to give it a try. You will have a great time, I promise.

This is a pic from my the last master class. Which just means it's 1.5 hrs. I'm the chubby one in the front ;-)

Even your old aunt is getting the hang of it! But it kills the knees. They haven't been this painful in a long time. Anyway, if I can do it, anyone can:)
