Today was the last instruction day of 2015 for our Zumba instructor ‘Eduardo’ at our gym. His last lesson was a 1 1/2 hour Masterclass for which he invited several guest instructors. One of them being my very own husband Oliver!
‘Eduardo’ is a multi-culti Australian, he has a (temporary) Latino name and an Asian appearance. He is a fun instructor and I love to go to his Zumba classes. I like his choice of music and he gives his classes a very good vibe.
Why Zumba is like chicken soup
What I like best about Zumba? It is like chicken soup. It is made everywhere in the world and yet no two soups are the same. Every instructor can add their own flavour to the work out. The best instructors are the ones who bring out their own personalities and stay close to the music that they like. It hardly feels like a workout, although after two hours of Zumba I do feel every musscle in my body! I am not looking forward to tomorrow…..
Eddie found seven very diverse instructors and put a lot of effort in preparing the Masterclass. Next to Eduardo the other instructors were Eddies example and inspiration to become a Zumba instructor ‘dancer José’, ‘Conga Nickey’, ‘Ukraine Antonia’ ‘always smiling Patty’, Latino Linette’ and my ‘German Oliver’. It paid off as the class was very full with more than 50 people there.
It is hard to give an impression of a Zumba class through pictures or words. So if you have never tried Zumba before, male or female, go to a try out lessons and give it a go!
