Tonight was my first Zumba class. I have to say I spent a little bit of time feeling foolish, missing steps, stopping regrouping and trying again. It wasn't hard but I am the type that if I get out of rhythm I have to take that time to stop and start again. The woman leading the class made some really good comments (to the class not just me) that helped me through my awkwardness. She said things like " I know you think you look really silly right now but you don't!" and " focus on the music don't worry about the steps".
The verdict is that I am going back on Wednesday! I think that once I get the steps down I will be able to feel more confident in going.
