i have been meaning to try out the new exercise craze, zumba, since they began offering it at my Y in september. i finally went tonight with aaron's aunt lori and we had a b.l.a.s.t.!

just to give you an idea...check out this video.

our class was just as high energy, though some of the moves weren't as intense (though i can say that the first dance sequence in the video was pretty similar to one of our sequences). i believe the instructors are provided with choreography and then they can compile them together according to the class's needs and skill level. of course, since this was like a dance class, you can personalize the moves by adding your own flair, thus making the "work-out" that much more fun. i was never out of breath, but i did work up a sweat.

as a dancer, it's exciting to watch the fusion of dance and fitness together, resulting in greater accessibility and exposure of dance for the general public.

if you're in my neck of the woods, check out amy's class at this Y thursday nights at 7 p.m.
