So I went to see the Doctor

It was Friday night and I was online researching “dancing”, in search of taking on a new physical activity. That’s when I came across DANCE DOCTORS in Gilbert, Arizona. I’m no dancer and the last time I took interest in a dance class was 1998. I joined a SWING DANCE CLASS and as fun as it was having my big behind thrown around the room by young men half my weight – I eventually forgot about our meetings and ended up forfeiting the benefits I could’ve reaped from the group.

So here we are 14 years later and I still have the bug. Surely Dance Doctors can help me conquer the crave via a ZUMBA class. Right? So I went for it. I sent them an email from their website and the instructor called me back within the hour.

The class only costs $7.00 for one hour of ZUMBA. I had $14 dollars on me and a 14 year old child riding shot gun. The class started at 11 a.m. on a Saturday morning – the kid and I showed up at 10:30. ‘Talk about anxious. Ten minutes later Stephanie, (the class instructor) shows up and promptly at 11 a.m. we were warming up our bodies preparing to be choreographed. Stephanie is young, hot and energetic – before we began I was praying for strength. lol!

We ZUMBA’d for 70 minutes non stop. No commercials – No pause button. There was also a student/instructor in the class named Debra. ‘Talk about Sexy. Between Stephanie and Debra I was trapped and resorted to dancing it out, trying to parallel their level of Zumba aerobic sexiness. Oh it was rough (the entry level of challenge), and when I looked up at the mirrored wall…I looked rough too. But guess what? I never stopped. I didn’t break. I didn’t sit out a dance. I went through the entire 70 minutes. Partly because I felt strongly about “If you want to look like Stephanie and Debra…45-55 minutes of dance will not cut it. WORK IT OUT QUI.” I was resilient. I came and I conquered. Of course I wore my body media arm band and once home I hooked it up to the MACBook Pro and saw that I burned 1000 calories. 1000 calories? Whoo Hoo! That is going to look great NOT going into my new pair of jeans. I left those calories with the Doctor – on the Dance room floor. I feel so sexy, so (on the road to being) sleek and so empowered today. Have you seen the doctor? I’ll see them again next Friday. Ay Caramba!

How are you shaping up for Spring? You know it’s around the corner…

Swing Dance, Salsa, Hip Hop or Rumba,
If you like to dance – go on & Try ZUMBA!
