But when I first heard about Zumba, I was very leery. I am not going to take a class that's all about dance, I thought. Everyone will see how bad I am and then I'll get kicked out of the class! A Zumba flunkie! That's what I'll be!!! But then one of my coworkers offered to teach a free Zumba class over our lunch hour one day. So I tried it.
Well, let me tell you, I fell in Zumba LOVE!
The music, the dancing, the exercise, the sweating. I tell you, doing Zumba gives me the kind of elation that I am always looking for. When I was doing it for the first time, I felt a bubble of joy grow in my chest and explode and I almost wanted to cry. I'm serious.
So now I'm taking a regular Zumba class with some friends. Here is my pictorial depiction of Zumba class:
Notice my splayed fingers, how I'm facing in the wrong direction, my awkwardly placed legs...that's how it is a lot of the time.. But I tell you, I have a GREAT time. I love it. I get to exercises, work up a sweat, AND laugh hysterically at myself for an hour. It gives me great joy.
