On Saturday I taught my first, albeit extremely informal, zumba class to a small group of five friends. One of my said friends had encouraged me to do so, even though I felt not totally ready in terms of polished choreographies and such, and I decided I might as well take the plunge. While I definitely have lots of work to do, we had a great time. The most stressful part was the rain that started to fall just before the class (it was to be outdoors) but just after we started the sun came back out and it turned into a lovely afternoon.
I'm definitely going to continue to use my friends and family members to hone my zumba instructing skills. By doing so, I get to share my zumba love with others, and they will get some exercise in exchange, hopefully a win-win situation. I'm really looking forward to doing it again soon!
