    I got a pretty good work out, though. But the moves were very repetitive and there was way too much booty shaking. My ass got kinda nauseous after a while.

    I will try it again, just because I liked the way I got a well-rounded work out. Dancing IS a very good way of working through your entire body and with a lot of ass-moves, your core muscles get a pretty good work out, and that's obviously a good thing. Also, I like dancing so. But I'll try another teacher.
    Ass shaking is THE best!
    I need to find me a Zumba around here so I can continue my spicy dancing.

    Hmm I've not been to a toning class.
    Zumba is very ass-shaky and repetitive though. A good instructor will switch up the moves and songs a good amount, so it's not the same every song. I have 12 different instructors at my gym, so there's a lot of variety.
    Hopefully you enjoy it more in the future!

    Agreed! I love the ass-shaking portion of the class. Also the chest-pumping (or whatever it'd be called).

    YES! I love chest-pumping! I had so much fun learning to do that in belly dancing. I need a Zumba class pronto!

    Smile Dancing for Joy and Listening

    We can dance for joy, or we can dance to perform, or we can dance to conform.

    Joy comes from within so dancing for joy comes from within.

    Dancing for joy does not seek to dance for others, nor does dancing for joy seek to dance with others, making the latest moves to the latest beat.

    Dancing to conform to the latest craze is a covert way of expressing depression.

    While dancing for joy is a way to express our deepest self.

    Dancing to conform or perform is never satisfying and so we must do it again and again and again, and with less satisfaction with each performance.

    While dancing for joy is completely satisfying.

    And dancing for joy is beautiful, while dancing to conform or perform is ugly.

    And joy is a bubbling spring within and all we have to do is listen.

    I like to shake-a my maracas. So to speak. :workout:

    I just started a new class today to take my mum. Bless, she kept doing everything wrong.

    I'm thinking about becoming an instructor. Seems like easy money.

    My next class is on Wednesday, with a male instructor. Should be interesting!
    His name sounds Latin, so hopefully he's got some moves and better taste in music.

    Just found out my school is offering a weekly class that is free to faculty and staff--they're alternating yoga and pilates with cardio and Zumba. VERY excited!

    I can't wait until my stamina is better. I get dancer-envy and instructor-envy because they can just keep at it. I save energy for chest-pumping and booty-shaking

    What if one dances for joy amidst the latest craze? I would consider Extraverts here . Most things that are joyous, for me personally, are shared things.

    I've almost been knocked out by some older ladies who get moves wrong. I can never hate on them, because they are always so into it. It should be a rule though: "Keep moving, but don't inflict unconsciousness!"

    As far as I know, even the workshop is quick and painless. I might do the same in the future, if Zumba keeps its popularity. I think it will.

    Oh ze spicy latin men .
    I hope it goes well! We had a male instructor, whom I adored, but he had to leave my gym. Sometimes they are even more motivating, but it could be due to their comfort with body-shaking.

    Awesome! Tell us how it goes. Will you be doing the yoga and pilates, as well? I've meant to go to a class around here, but I've heard they are intimidating.

    Oh my god! This looks so amazing! I want to try this haha this is wicked. I'll probably have to do it on my own though because I have no-one to do it with, suxxx. :C And I dunno that I could find a class here in Ottawa... sigh... But still! As a Cuban (lol what does that have to do with anything) I feel like I need to know this dance, Caribbean or not...

    Thumbs down Exorcism and Zumba

    I was just reading, "The City", magazine.

    "The City", is a glossy magazine for the city of Canberra, the Capital of Australia.

    And there is a whole two page spread for Zumba with glossy sexy photos.

    But I know the people who will attend these Zumba classes and they are depressed people looking for the latest fix.

    They are on the treadmill of depression. I see them literally on treadmills behind the glass of fashionable gymnasiums, and soon I will see them behind the same glass trying to exorcise their depression with Zumba.
