So You Think You Can Dance tonight! I can't wait to watch. I get so inspired!
I'm not going to make my pick until they announce the top 20. But I did see some good ones last Thursday!

PLAY LIST THIS WEEK
We will be having class on Monday, Memorial Day.
• Monday, Tuesday AND Wednesday: smorgasbord
We'll be doing a combo of old misc. routines and some new ones. The genre is ALL OVER the board, hence SMORGSBOARD. Since a lot is new and/or review and a lot of folks won't be in class on Memorial Day we'll be doing the same class all this week.
Within the next couple of weeks we are getting some ceiling fans at Scott Fitness 3.0. YEAH!
I’ve just been informed by John Scott that there is going to be a photo shoot during a ZUMBA class for promotional post cards and such. How fun! I’d like for all of you to be there jammin’ out and striking your fierce poses. When I get more info about what day it’s going to be I’ll let you all know.
MORE COOL STUFF
To get a little friendly competition going I ordered some ZUMBA stickers that I’ll be giving out in class.
On random days I’ll give a sticker for who attended all three days that week, who had the best freestyle or pose. Stuff like that.
And… thanks to the young lady who gave me free Dance Flick passes, wrist band (which I wore in class Wednesday), and sticker. I didn’t have a chance to go, but I’ll be using the Star Trek passes she gave today!

I posted on December 8th that the Dance Flick was coming out in February. Well it's FINALLY coming out on the 22nd. I think I'm going to go see it, but I haven't seen X-men or Star Trek and Terminator come out also. Too many movies to see!
Also, I'm officially ZUMBA Level II certified! It was a long workshop (9a - 6p). By 4p we we're losing steam. There were about 15 of us and I got lots of ideas for class. When I went home I set aside 40+ new songs to choreograph! Some of them are song I've been meaning to get to, others are some I've been too afraid to try. I doubt I'll ever get to all of them because I'm always hearing new stuff and there are already 80+ songs that we do already. Did you know that we knew that many routines? Well you do!
I learned some new belly dancing, flamenco and samba moves to add onto some new songs. I learned some tango too. Long ago in my Hallmark class I did a tango, but I took it off of my list. Now I'm going to re-choreograph it. I've also wanted to do a soul train line and other things in class. But I've been too nervous to do them. Now with my new training I'm more confident to do more fun stuff. But how can my class be any more funner?!? Watch out!!!
CD... I learned in my workshop that I can't make a ZUMBA CD to sell. The music ZUMBA gives me is licensed for me to use for class, and I can't share it with others. I'm not even supposed to be using other music for class even if I purchase it. Like, iTunes purchases are for personal use only. However lots of the remixes I use are from my husband. Since he's a DJ he explained to me that those remixes are free so they are ok. It's complicated - licenses on uses of music. Long story short I won't be making a Zumba CD of the music I use in class for you guys to buy. I can't give it to you either. So just check the side bar for my iTunes list.
This week in class:
• Monday and Wednesday: last week's hip-hop and R&B set
• Tuesday: last week's Latin / Indian set
Monday, May 11, 2009
• Monday and Wednesday ZUMBA will be another mix of Latin/Indian.
• Tuesday ZUMBA will be another mix of hip-hop/R&B.
On Saturday May 16th I'll be getting ZUMBA certified again for a ZUMBA Basic Level 2 certificate!
On December 10th, 2006 I was trained in the four basic rhythms: merengue, salsa, cumbia and reggaeton. In the Basic Level 2 course I'll learn belly dance, flamenco, tango and samba. Well, we already do belly dance and some flamenco and samba. But we haven't done any tango. So it'll be good to learn some new things and be refreshed on others.
And did you know there is ZUMBA Gold, which focus on senior citizens and features the ZUMBA Chair workout. There is ZUMBA Toning that incorporates the unique rhythmic ZUMBA Toning Sticks. And ZUMBA Kids and Aqua ZUMBA is being developed now! WOW!
One more thing... I think the "only in a Woman's World" series by Frito Lay Snacks is so funny! I love that the four characters are different ethnicities.
The situations they put the characters in are super silly! (Sorry the video is a little chopped off, I tried resizing it).
The site is SO CUTE! You can watch the 7 webisodes, send e-cards and you can even make yourself one of the girls! Here is me:
It was so fun making her!

Ok... some folks missed out on hip-hop /R&B last Tuesday so I'm going to do it again!
• Monday and Wednesday ZUMBA will be hip-hop/R&B.
• Tuesday ZUMBA will be Latin/Indian.
I figure I'd do the classes on a two-week rotation so no one will miss out.
Hope to see you there!
P.S. I just HAVE to include a video that I saw on one of my friend's blog. Just watch the little boy. HA!
Oh... one more! This is my FAV...
