From the WWW: Observations about Zumba instructors

Have you seen this article? Blogger Lisa Newlin has a pretty funny, and somewhat accurate, take on trends among Zumba instructors. 

She starts by describing what Zumba is:
For those of you unfamiliar with Zumba, it is a torturous aerobics class where we constantly move our hips and do somewhat sexy dancing (although with the size of my hips and my protruding stomach, I would say I look anything but sexy. I look more like I'm having a seizure.)

She notes our affinity for bright colors, rubber bracelets, and Zumbawear (yep!). She says we all must be able to chew gum and walk at the same time (probably true!). She says we all must look good while we work out, which I would say is one of the more controversial statements. Just the other day there was quite a debate on Facebook about whether one should wear make up when teaching or not. 

Anyway, Lisa's article is good for a chuckle and a little insight into what might be on students' minds.
