The Home Office Connection Experience

Here's a sneak peak into my experience at the NYC Home Office Connection. If you've never been to one, they include a master class and updates from the home office. Great way to feel connected to the broader Zumba community.

To the folks who I met in person - it was great to connect! And to so many of you readers who were there but we didn't run into each other... darn. Hope to meet you another time!

Pregame music on my way to the train. Love me some 90s dance music!

Choreographing a new warm up routine on the train!
The Line... we waited for a while but it was nice to connect with people while we were standing around!

Master class with Armando - he was AMAZING!
Then there was this group-cumbia-hold-hands thing... I decided to take a picture rather than get mixed up in it.
After the master class, Nancy and Gina from the HO gave some updates. They previewed a Zumba cruise (for real!)... more details on that by email to come.

Not pictured: Introductions of all the ZESs and ZJs! I didn't take any pics but Marysol, Kim, Michele, and Val were all there! (I had to leave before the event ended so I didn't get a chance to say hi to everyone - hi, ZJs!)

One of the best parts of the evening was when we heard from Soaringwords, an organization that brings joy to injured and ill people in hospitals. A team of ZINs partnered with Soaring words to dance with kids in a local hospital. They were truly inspiring!

Have you been to an HOC? What did you like? What else would you like to see?

  1. I had a blast at my Home Office Connection! It was on my birthday! Yipee. A Zumba cruise sounds pretty awesome..and maybe a little tiring. I heard rumors about this a while back, glad to find out it was true.
