When I first heard this song, I couldn’t wait to add it to my playlist for my Zumba® class. Sure Zumba® can be high-energy and a non-stop exhilarating hour-long workout, but it’s also good to bring the heart rate down after it’s been up for a couple of energetic songs.  It helps the heart become stronger and build it’s endurance.

Plus, I enjoy when my students can actually learn some dance moves and then add their own flavor to it.  I want my students to dance with me and feel like they can master learning choreo so they can practice it on their own.  No one wants to feel lost all the time, at least I don’t like to.  Once you learn the choreo and hear the song in class, you can dance to it and feel good that you got the choreo down packed.  Then it’s time for a new song, new choreo, and new dance moves to learn.  Learning never stops. Dancing to new rhythms should never stop as well.

I wonder what style of dance or genre of music will be next.  I guess you have to stick around to find out 🙂

This is one of my favorite songs to dance to in my #Zumba classes.  Why? Because my students love it and it gives them the opportunity to really get down and have fun with me which is what I strive for in each of my Zumba classes.

One of the biggest challenges I have faced as an instructor is the location of my classes not being convenient for my followers.  I am originally from Miami now living in Fort Lauderdale and I teach mostly in Broward County and even Palm Beach County (which are the 2 counties north of Miami-Dade County). A majority of Miami residents do not travel outside of the 305 and I don’t blame them.  As for me, to drive to Miami to teach and hour long class is not ideal mostly because traffic is so so bad here.  My point is,  I teach all over the place and it makes it difficult for my followers and even friends to take my class. My students that do come to my class are gym members who live locally, which I love & appreciate my local students so much!

Because of this, I record my choreo to the songs I use for my classes to reach my followers so they can dance with me wherever they are located.  And trust me guys, it’s not to become famous because being famous is not my goal in life.  Believe it or not, I am very introverted and reserved to be famous.  I am a shadow and always been a shadow, but this shadow loves music and dance so I create my craft for the rest to enjoy.  Seeing others enjoy my work makes me feel good which is why I continue despite all the obstacles I’ve encountered.

So hit play, make sure it’s on HD (sometimes Youtube reverts it to a low-quality instead of HD which I still need to figure out why?!?), turn up the music and dance with me from wherever you are.  Please make sure you like & subscribe so I know you are dancing with me too.  Full playlists will be coming soon too!
