I attend my Friend’s Zhumba dance class from time to time, it is an amazing class i must say, but being as observative , I decided to come up with a couple of things you should and shouldn’t be doing at any fitness dance class.They are going to be random, so try to keep up.
- Do not apply your perfume
Well, unless you are practising for Chris Brown’s Mombasa concert as a backup dancer and he happens to be in the same room and you want him to notice you, then you are excused, but until then, everyone wants to breathe fresh air in a dance class, not perfumed air
- Master the moves as soon as you can
If you have ‘seven’ left feet like I do,
hashtag kidding, I could literally beat you at a dance off , ” Just saying …I mean….” *Insert Imaginary hair flip*
You want to do whatever it takes to master the moves as soon as the second or third count is on…..practise at home, record and learn the moves at home…..whatever it is, as long as you do not step on your neighbour’s feet on the next dance class.
- Be aware of your sourroundings
If you are a dance coach or have been to any fitness class, you will realise that the coach loves to move around , I have seen a coach walk out of the class with a black eye because someone did not know he was behind her and she hit him , Be aware of your sourrounding people.
- A little deodorant for the road
This I bet is for the obvious reasons
- Do not laugh at the newbies
If it is hard for the newbies to keep up, be a darling and help them out instead of gigling when they mess up
- Do not be afraid to make a fool out of yourself
The only way to learn is when you fall flat on your face and make a joke out of it, if you mess up….shake it off…. shake it off ……..done? Okay, now Move on
- Make Friends
This is a social place, More like speed dating, only more sophisticated and less weird.
Dance brings people together,the high and Mighty , the not so high and Mighty (I honestly don’t know what the opposite of high and Mighty is so I decided to play it safe)
the more reason as to why you should smile with everyone and ask their name, Maybe even their number ‘Hey! Fellahs’
- Have Fun
Yo! I don’t know about you but I know that if I sign up for a dance fitness class, it is to have fun and stay healthy at the same time. Doesn’t sound like a deal with the devil kinda deal that’s for sure.
