I'm a Zumba Instructor. What's Your Super Power?

This post is by Dana, a guest blogger on The Z Beat!
If you are a Zumba instructor, I bet you sometimes wonder how you get through the day, nevermind how you have enough energy to teach. On multiple occasions I have heard my students say, “You have SO much energy” or “You are so enthusiastic for the entire hour…how?” Let me try and explain it.  As a Zumba instructor, it sometimes feels like we have super powers. What I mean is, we hide away our super powers under our pillows at home, in our desks at work, everywhere – we must have super power pixie dust hidden in ours shoes to accomplish everything we do in one day PLUS teach all of our classes!
How else could we manage our lives AND then transform into the enthusiastic and motivating instructors that we are when we frankly don’t have one speck of energy left? It has to be the super powers that kick in AS SOON as the music starts.

Sometimes you need that super power to get through the work day only to make it to class in the nick of time and as soon as the music starts, {BAM} your day starts all over again. You transform into a person who has more energy than ten of the ‘yous’ earlier that day… and you wonder where it all came from. It must be super powers!

Or maybe you’ve spent all day pulling your hair out with the kids chauffeuring them from one playdate to another and after you’ve changed your outfit at the red light in your car and rush in to get to class… as soon as the music starts {BAM}….It must be super powers!

Or maybe this is your third or fourth class of the day and you have NO idea how you are going to muster up the energy to move it to the right or left one more time let alone teach your very last class. However, as soon as the music starts, {BAM} what tired legs? Your arms don’t hurt. It must be super powers!

Let’s all embrace the super hero in each of us and celebrate with a superhero name! Use the first letter of your first and last name (you can throw your middle name in too!). It’ll be fun. GO! I’ll start… I am: Dale Dale Jammer Kuduro!
