    It sounds like fun! Maybe I'll order the DVD's and try them in the privacy of my own home where I can privately embarass myself.

      Its kinda like a latin dance/hip-hop dance aerobics class. I just wear normal gym clothes. Usually they have new songs every few weeks so you don't have to worry about when you start or stop. It'll take you a class or two to get the basics down, so just start in the back until you feel comfortable.
      AWESOME! Thanks for the info!

      Heehee Glenda this is what I'll be doing as well! My new "friend" is technically qualified to teach it. I wrote her today saying I wanted to order the DVDs first but she said she already has all of them and to come over to her house to try them out!! I am so pumped - I get to screw up first in her home with alcohol and then "officially" try them out in a real gym Then she wants to go to a Latin club and shake our booties - WOOHOO! I love dancing!

                  I tried this class at my gym last week. Was lots of fun. And, like Melba said, was pouring with sweat, but it wasn't hard to do tho. So, you dont notice you're sweating like crazy till the end. I would take the zumba class again. It was basically a lot of dancing with a kind of mexican/latin flair and music. Try it!

                    OOO Can't wait to do this! I did Core Rhythms which is latin dance also, but this looks more intense! can't wait! I have a bit of a ride to get to a class though. bummer. I would do the DVD's but they would sit there and I would never get to them.

                      I ZUMBA every week!!! Its so fun!!!! Ive lost 3 lbs in a week! lol Realistically its not just from Zumba but you usually will burn about 400-600 calories per hour. I missed my class today but I go back on Friday! We call it monkey see monkey do... you just follow along. It will be helpful to know the salsa move first. You got to move your hips! I say try it first!
