There’s a Lesson In Zumba For Us All: Just Give It All You Got!

So, I finally went and jumped on the Zumba bandwagon. Folks who were already attending the classes were right–I’m hooked! The music, the moves, and the attitude of not giving a darn who saw me getting my dance on, was inspiring. It was SO much fun! I especially loved the fact that there were men in the class (three to be exact), and one was so rhythmically challenged, he nearly took out an entire group of dancers while swinging his arms. But you know what? It didn’t matter. He was in there dancing, laughing, feeling the music, having a good time, and trying his best. When the instructor introduced a new step, he kept on going until he mastered it (or came close). Isn’t that what it’s about? Just give it all you got! It’s a lesson we can all appreciate. Do what you love, be in the moment, but just make sure you give it all you got.

  1. “The rhythm is gonna get you!” Zumba is fun! I’ve seen it done to everything from musica Latino to Mandisa. Bailar es vivir! It’s all bout the natural high of moving and in some small way expressing yourself. Then those endorphins kick in and it’s hard to stop! In Victoria, they used to have “Zumba in the Club” on Friday nights. A group gathered on the second level of a downtown nightclub around 7 pm…loong before anyone would actually be out partying,lol. The instructors would get on the stage, the house lights would be down, and the strobes and music would get PUMPING. We’s dance for almost 2 hours. You couldn’t help but leave sweaty and satisfied. Why? Because we were really “into” it. Now, how to get (some of) our teachers to get in their groove each day?
