Zumba dance party!

 

Many of you have probably been told by religious people (who undoubtedly had no rhythm ) that dancing is a sin.  Well, that's a bunch of baloney. Even babies dance; it's a natural human activity enjoyed by virtually all cultures.

If you agree with me that dancing is a blast, and if you want to get a great workout, then please join me for a 1.5 hour Zumba class this Saturday at the Infinity Dance Sport Center in Kearny Mesa. No previous experience with Zumba is required. We'll dance to the beat of irresistible, pulse-pounding Latin songs while learning new dance steps and burning hundreds of calories.  It's like getting a workout without realizing it!

Guys, I realize many of you are embarrassed to try Zumba (I know this because I'm usually the only man in my Zumba class at work), but trust me, after a while, you'll be having so much fun that you will no longer be embarrassed.  As Gloria Estefan sang, "The rhythm is gonna get you!"  Women are much more likely to participate in group exercise classes.  I'd like to challenge the men in our group to take this class with me and show women that we can dance, too!

The cost of the class is $12.00.  Your instructors will be Marcela and Graciela (my Zumba instructor at work-both are pictured above).  For more information on Zumba, please click on this link:  http://www.dance2fitness.com/

Come on, don't be a stiff, boring Puritan or Fundamentalist Xtian--let's let loose on the dance floor, humanists!

I hope to see some of you on Saturday.  If enough people attend, we'll reward ourselves with lunch at a restaurant in Kearny Mesa.

    This sounds fun, but unfortunately I have to work this Saturday. I hope this will be a repeat event :)

      Yes, I'll see if we can get more participants at the Zumba class on the last Saturday in July. That will be one day before Peruvian Indepence Day, so some Peruvian music will be used for the class. Both instructors are from Peru.

    It was a blast! The 20 or so participants were 95% female, which was no surprise. Too bad more men don't do Zumba because it's a great workout. A colleague of mine lost about 35 pounds in a year doing Zumba. We'll try this again on the last Saturday in July. I'll post this event earlier so people can better plan for it.
