ZUMBA WITH MUÑOZ EFREN AT THE J & B DANCING CLUB
I was excited to be able to attend one of Efren's Zumba classes last week. He is a well-known and talented instructor. I went to his 7:00 PM class at the J & B Dancing Club in Puerto Vallarta, a very nice venue for a Zumba class. He was on an elevated stage, so it was easy to see him from anywhere on the dance floor.
This class was pretty high intensity and fairly fast-paced, but Efren was so easy to follow! He gave clear, timely hand signals when the steps were about to change. Efren demonstrated the steps at half-speed until the newcomers, like me, had the rhythm, then he jumped into the moves to the full beat of the music. Efren's class was so much fun!
I liked Efren's reminder that Zumba is not as much about dancing as it is about moving! Just keep moving! Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States, would agree with that. Her "Let's Move!" campaign is all about healthy living through exercise. "Let's Move" and "Let's Zumba!" Moving is more fun with Latin music!
