Welcome to Day Nineteen of The November 30/30 Challenge.
The activity highlight for today is Latin Dancing!
Last year, every Monday night, my sister in law and I did a Latin Dance class.
Now, it wasn't your typical latin class where you dance with a partner.
It was a women's only, latin dance workout class, and I loved it!
We learnt all the typical latin steps, and did them over and over again in different routines, and I tell you what!
It was one hell of a workout!
By the time we were half way through a class, I had a bright red face and was sweating up a storm!
But mostly what I loved about it, was that I felt sexy doing it!
It didn't matter that I looked ridiculous. What was important, was that I felt sexy ;)
Latin dance is very social, obviously when most of it is danced with a partner, but if you don't have a partner, some places have classes like mine, or most places have lessons where you can find a partner there. Generally, the first part of the night is learning the steps, and then you choose a partner and spend the rest of the session practising the steps together.
Apart from the social aspect, there are many other benefits of Latin Dancing.
Some of them are:
Improves muscle tone.
Assists weight loss.
Lowers blood pressure.
Uses the mind, by requiring concentration.
Increases range of motion in joints.
So, if you enjoy dancing, why not give latin a try? It's a great workout, as well as being a lot of fun. You might also get to meet some great people.
And in the wise words of Dave Barry -
"Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance."
