So last Friday I was going to the YMCA to just go work out on the machines, when I remembered that the Zumba Gold class was going at noon. I had blogged about it wantng to do it few posts ago. I decided to do it and just went for it. I shook as I drove there and couldn't catch a good breath. I got there early which was a bit of a torture.
When it was time I just told the instructor it was my first time and I don't know how much I can do but I want to try. She responded that I just need to have fun and do what I can do. So I positioned myself to the far side and had some small chit chat with some ladies. Most of them 20-30 years my senior. Of course one asked why I was in the wheelchair. I gave a quick answer and we started groovin.
I felt like a complete dork as I tried to follow the head gal. But did the whole 45 min. session just movin anyway I could that was similar to what was going on. I loved being a part of a dancing group like that and will definitely do it again, dorkiness and all.
