My mom wants me to take a Zumba class with her. Anyone here ever done it before? What exactly do you do? I've never taken an excersize class before, so I'm sure I'll feel pretty stupid regardless, I just want to know what I'm in for, haha :)

As far as I know Zumba is dancing, while waving your arms about, and doing different stretches, all at the same time. Be aware, you may make a fool out of yourself, but it's all for fun, so enjoy!

Everyone is beautiful, even you!

Some of life's mysteries will never be solved, such as why, after spending an entire evening listenong to Bach, do I find myself humming "the birdie song".......

I am reaching, but i fall, and the stars are black and cold, as i stare into the void of a world that cannot hold- les miserables

If you look on youtube, there are loads of videos of Zumba, which should give you some idea what to expect!

I've done it, and it's really fun; you might feel stupid but everyone else is making a fool of themselves too so it's fine!

"I know you're sad, so I won't tell you to have a good day. Instead, I advise you to simply have a day.
Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don't give up on yourself just yet.
It'll get better. Until then, have a day."

Yes, I love it! :D It is definitely the best thing that I ever did... formed some amazing friendships through it and it has built up my confidence by a long way. The first time I went was terrifying. I didn't know any of the moves and felt quite self-conscious but now I don't really care and went wrong the other day - it was highly embarrassing but no one minds because they go wrong, too! It's such good fun, the music is brilliantly cheesy and I would definitely say, go for it! You don't have to give a lot, either. It's entirely up to you how involved in the movements you get.

I'm supposed to go for the first time on Tuesday. I'll probably make an ass of myself, but no one I know goes to Zumba anyway so who cares? It won't be the most embarassing I've ever looked in public, haha.

So as far as I understand you will be with a group of people who will look just as ridiculous as everyone else. =)

I've done it before, it's a lot of fun. You just stand behind the teacher and try to repeat what s/he is doing. Don't worry, everyone looks ridiculous, but it's a great laugh. I really enjoyed it.
