Zumba!!

A friend recently told me about a new dance/exercise craze here in town and I've been thinking that I'd like to try it but being the procrastinator that I am, I hadn't taken the plunge.  It took another friend to say, "Hey, I'm going to Zumba tomorrow.  Wanna come?"  What a blast!  Of course after about 15 minutes of so called "warm ups" I was ready to call it a day but I made it through the hour and was none the worse for the wear.  I thought I'd be stiff today but so far not really. 
I'm thinking that I'll need to get different shoes because the floor is a little "grippy"; nice for exercise but not so good for dance.
Zumba is a Latin style dance/exercise class that is so much fun!  The instructor is great.  She has lots of spirit and a very perky attitude.  She reminds me a lot of my niece, Amanda.  Here's a link to learn more about her:

Hey so happy you went Marcela is AWESOME!
I recommend reeboks at Penney's. Mine are high top and a bright pink but the bottoms are for dancing, there is no traction so you dont have that friction on your knees. I had to get high tops for my ankles but you may be able to get them in low tops. I am like a size 7 if you ever wanna try them, they are like new still. I have not been zumbaaaain this summer and it SHOWS~!

It was a blast wasn't it. The warm cool down part i mean. HAHA I love it. I really like my shoes I bought.I was wishing i bought the other ones when we were talking there because of the circles but I still think they would stick to that floor and these are feather light and that is what does it for me. I wish I could figure out away to go Tuesday and Thursdays. So do you think everybody in class knows I have something wrong with my back!! Awkward... Marcella is so funny, I woory about your back Meesy HAHA love her.. Anyway... see you at the next class.

Thanks for telling me about Zumba, Molly. I do need to get new shoes but that will have to wait a while. I have a pair with felt soles that I'm going to try today. They just might work. I'm going to zumba today at the Y (noon). Which class do you take?

@Missy - Thanks for calling me about doing Zumba. You know there's a lot of things that I'd like to do but don't have the courage to go ahead and do them. It was a real work out but hopefully I'll be better at it today! Two left feet and all!!!
