Zumba looks interesting, but I doubt very much my arthritic hips and knees could take it.
I do Zumba videos on Youtube. To learn the moves (for any workout dance routine) I first put the speed on .75 or .5 and open another Window and play music I like and then work on learning the steps. Once I know the routine, I speed it up again. I like Oldies Music, so I most often us it as I don't care for a lot of the new music.
The best channel I have found for older people is ZDanceLiz
She doesn't talk, but gives hand signals and she is geared to older people.
I tried Zumba, and absolutely hated it. I need to know what I am expected to do, not guess wildly. Very poorly put together.
I don't think I could do this anymore
So much fun
I love Zumba
Some of my friends love it and I tried it once but this is just not for me.
Can’t seem to follow it at the right speed, but do laugh a lot!
I call this dancing to the music, SparkFriends. It doesn't even seem like we're exercising! It's a party
I really enjoy the class even though I am not able to do all the moves. I also like the new Zumba! Strong which incorporates strength training.
Shake your money maker, or whatever
