I had so much fun teaching my Zumba class this morning!  I thoroughly enjoyed my playlist, as did my class.  I love it when they sing along and hoot and clap.  You know they're enjoying it, too!  This was my morning playlist and as I look through the songs, I remember that one of the reasons I choose songs is because I'm inspired by other instructors.  I always love attending as many other instructor's classes as I can fit in for this very reason! 


Canta Canta, Minha Gente I got from Thayna's class.  Bryan inspired me to do Sweet Girl.  Mia originally did Arremangala Arrempujala.  John did Crazy Love.  Jazzie did Shake Your Body Down to the Ground.  I went to Thayna's class and then directly to Alex' class afterwards one Sunday and both did Vamos Pa' La Pista.  I loved it so much I added it to my repertoire.  Then Alex did Coranzoncito Bonito and I had to add that one, too. 


I loved Wally in ZIN 43 hence, Take On Me and Salsa Choke (which the class loved!).  I also always try to keep in mind what Beto said the day I got licensed with him.  Of course the Zumba formula is 70% Latin and 30% other.  He strongly encouraged us to use this formula.  In his own words, "If your class is 90% Salsa.  It's a Salsa Class, not a Zumba class.  If your class is 90% Hip Hop, it's a Hip Hop Class, not a Zumba class."  Get the picture?  LOL...I do have a few salsa's, eh? 


I'm off to be inspired more!  Much Zumba Love!
