Zumba ROCKS Orlando!

I love going to fitness conventions where you know everyone there shares a passion for health and fitness. So on August 25, 2010 Zumba Fitness instructors from around the world descended upon Orlando, Florida. Yes, I did say “around the world” – New Zealand and Australia, China and Japan, Great Britain and the Netherlands, and, of course, Latin America. Zumba has people swiveling their hips and shouting “WEPA!” in all corners of the globe. And it was no different this weekend – you could feel the energy buzzing throughout the hotel, creating a while new kind of rhythm.

Then there are the people – seeing old friends and making new ones, we all have in common our love for Zumba (and Zumbawear, which you’ll see many of us wearing in these photos!) Whether the favorite beat is cumbia, reggaeton, salsa or even African drum beats, everyone spends the weekend dancing their heart out – and hoping we can remember dance combinations by the end of the weekend! And the weekend wasn’t just about perfecting international dance rhythms (I WILL master samba, someday!) and learning how to become better instructors, but we also got to see how the Zumba corporation is trying to make fitness accessible to all. Through new partnerships and programs (don’t want to ruin any surprises before the official announcements on www.zumba.com), Zumba Fitness, LLC hopes to introduce more people to its soul-thumping hip-pumping fun!

If you haven’t tried a Zumba class yet, take the leap! You don’t have to know how to dance, have rhythm or be coordinated (just don’t knock anyone down when we travel!), just a little adventurous spirit to try something new and a BIG smile! You can join me at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center on Tuesday (6-7 pm) and the West Seattle YMCA on Monday (5:30-6:30 pm) and Thursday (6-7 pm). Also check out my Zumba page to find out how you can bring Zumba fun to your next party, meeting, worksite wellness program or community event.

More class times in your area can be found at www.zumba.com – try more than one until you find an instructor who suits your style. You will soon find we all bring our own flavor to a class, but we all want you to Join the Party!
