Love of dance
I had the great fortune of joining a local group of women, whose ages range from teens to 60s, to attend a Zumba Fitness Concert Labor Day weekend at the Navy Pier in Chicago.
We were brought together by Nikki VanDinter, a certified Zumba instructor, whose love of dance and fitness is contagious.
We arrived to the concert and joined hundreds of other men and women who were wearing fun, brightly colored fitness clothes and all of us who attended, with our wide range of personalities, sizes, shapes, and levels of ability were led by Zumba creator Beto Perez and his dance instructors in dance fitness routines choreographed with dance style influences from around the world.
We truly forgot we were exercising, making Zumba engagingly interactive and fun.
