Last night was my first Zumba class at the community center and it turned out to be a really great time. It definitely put my previous Zumba experiences at the gym to shame.

My friend and I got the time mixed up so we ended up there rather early and got to chat with the instructor. She was very friendly and personable which was nice, considering I was probably going to make a jackass of myself.

The class size was very small compared to what I was used to at the gym (barely any room to move) but it worked. I had a lot of fun and sweated my booty off to a mixture of contemporary songs (on the radio right now) and Latin music. I love a lot of those songs but sometimes hearing things you listen to all the time helps you get in the spirit more.

Some of the pros of the class were I picked up the moves fairly easily which I have to thank my recent obsession with the wii and youtube. The fact that the class was a diverse group of older women, mother daughters, and younger women was great too. Nobody was trying to impress anyone or out dance people or came looking like Jersey Shore or a stripper audition.

I’m hoping to tell more of my friends about this so the town won’t cancel it. That would suck.

And just incase anyone wants to know how many calories you burn this is a really good site. When I plugged in my stats it said I would burn 688 cals…definitely right on the money.

    Glad you enjoyed this setting better. Hopefully, more will join so that it won’t get cancelled.
