My Zumba Teaching Experience
I have been teaching Zumba since April now and absolutely love it! Its so much fun to teach, admittedly I don't find it hugely enjoyable to participate in, but hey that's why I teach it I guess!
I actually feel like I get a really good workout from it, and yes my waistline is benefitting from it! My ladies all have their own individual dancing styles and come along to have a great time, their such a beautiful bunch. As neither of my classes are held at peak times there is always plenty of room for you to shake and shimmey your way to fitness, and I have the opportunity to connect with everyone on a personal level. Although we were told not to, I do break down some of the trickier moves as there is nothing more irritating than being unable to follow a move, sometimes the visual cues we are encouraged to use just aren't enough to enable everyone to know what they are doing. I have so much fun with my Zumba Queens, I really hope this isn't just a fad and that it does hang around for a while longer! Not only is Zumba a great workout but it builds peoples confidence up to eventually attend a class at a gym, it has also reawakened fitness in the community which particularly where I am from has been practically non-existant!
