“To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.”
~Agnes De Mille
I am one of those people that can trip on my own feet, or even nothing, so trying a Zumba class sounded really intimidating. However, I made some friends yesterday at the gym and they were really encouraging about the class, so I decided to jump in there and try it.
Guys, it’s really fun! 🙂 I had no idea! It’s like a cross between bellydancing and hip hop, both of which I’ve done a little bit before with videos or kiddos teaching me. The instructor wears bells and is very perky and she didn’t mind me staring at her butt trying to figure out how she was moving.
I only lasted about 20 minutes into a thirty minute class, but some people stayed on for a second class, which seemed to be more my speed (the first one was really fast paced industrial/dance music. The second one was more like pop ballads.)
There’s another class Thursday during my workout time, so I’m going to try it again. 🙂
