Now We've Zumba'd!

I have to say that I was impressed with how many of us dragged ourselves out for some Zumba on Friday night.  At last count there were 22 little tushies shaking it during the class.  I must send out a thank-you to our instructor Shawn who wasn't feeling great but still came out to show us his sexy moves.  While many people were getting ready to head south, we were dancing to the music of Cuba, Columbia and the Dominican Republic without even leaving the city.  Tropical vacations are very overrated!  

I had originally described Zumba as latin line dancing.  With one class under my belt, I would have to say that Zumba is more like latin aerobics with a big emphasis on dance.  Although we were definitely putting the dance moves together, I would have to say that most of us had a good sweat going.  It was a real workout and a lot of fun.  To me Zumba was aerobics with more sex appeal and more liberating because of the dance moves.  I especially liked the 'twirling' dance.  There is something about twirling with your arms spread out that just makes you feel like a kid again.  I'd be ready to sign up for a class if DRC schedules a session.

A few of us ended up at Milagro's on Wellington after the class.  It just seemed right to enjoy a class of Sangria after our quick trip to the South.

I had a great time, and you're right, there's something incredibly liberating about twirling around with your arms wide open. I think I had a grin on my face the whole time ... that is, when my calves weren't screaming in pain! ;)

Thanks for organizing you guys. It was a lot of fun.
