I have said this before and I will say this again (I will probably say this ‘till the day I die); I am NOT a dancer. I don’t dance. I can’t dance. So when we learned of the Zumba event at Label (yes that is a nightclub) I knew what I had to do…I had to find something else to do that day. Thankfully I was already scheduled for work and I couldn’t make it. Thankfully again we have some other amazing people here are Sweat and Sweets who were able to go in my place. And let me tell you, and perhaps spoil the rest of this for you; after talking to them when they got back and watching the video, I regret not being able to go!
So for those of you who don’t know what Zumba is, you probably need to remove the rock from where you have been hiding under for the last 20 years. Zumba is one of the biggest fitness sensations…ever. Simply put, it is Latin inspired dance music to get you moving, grooving, and sweating your butt off. Since I wasn’t able to make it, you will need to take my interpretation of Tom’s description – it went something like this:
OH MY GOD IT WAS AWESOME! IT WAS LIKE A PARTY IN A GIANT NIGHTCLUB WITH ALL THE LIGHTS AND SMOKE AND SO MUCH ENERGY. IT WAS INSANE. IT WAS MASSIVE! HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE JUST TOTALLY IN THE MOMENT HAVING FUN GETTING THEIR FITNESS ON.
So let me contextualize this a little bit. Tom is less of a dancer than me – and he loved it. He loved the setting, he loved the music and he loved that they served waffle waffle at the bar. He even loved that the ladies behind the waffle waffle bar were jamming out dancing.
This is something I will be trying the next chance I get.
