gettin’ my groove on

I had another post already written for today, but I was so excited about what I did last night I had to preempt it. In fact, this post should probably wait for next weeks “get moving…it’s Monday!”, but I just can’t contain my excitement!

I took a dance class last night!  Actually, an exercise class, but it was dance.  No, not Zumba…

…Group GROOVE at ClubSport!

We joined a healthclub at the beginning of the year (maybe that will be my next “GMIM” post), and I have taken full advantage of it. I had planned on taking a yoga class, but saw that Group GROOVE was at almost the same time. Last weekend they introduced the new classes, and I watched a bit of Group GROOVE. It looked like an absolute blast. In fact there was an older gentleman totally rocking out…front and center.  He inspired me.  If he could do it, so could I.  (Truth be told, he was also rocking out in the Group STEP class the next morning…front and center…I need his enthusiasm and attitude!)

So, there I was at 6:30 standing in Studio 1 getting ready to get my groove on.  Or, was it shake my groove thing?!  Either way, I was groovin’!

I recently tweeted that I am adding “learn the Thriller dance” to my bucket list. People, we danced to “Beat It” tonight.  Serious, Michael Jackson style. Now, I stood and watched a lot and probably looked like an uncoordinated fool, but I had so much fun.  I was smiling the entire hour.  I will learn the Thriller dance!

I’m definitely taking this class again.  I’m also going to try a lot of other classes.

By the way, when I was walking out the instructor said to me, “You did great! This was your 2nd time, right!”

I said, “This was my first!”

She said, “Then you really did great!”

Yeah, sure. She just wants me to come back so she can laugh at me again. And, I will.

Don’t be afraid to try something new…EVER.  It is never to late to learn how to dance.

home is…gettin’my groove on!

    I’m with you, if you’re going to do something like that then do it 100%. It’s kinda’ like the sign spinners that you see on street corners. There seem to be 2 types, the kind that totally get into it and are dancing, playing air guitar etc. (remember “Jazzy” on the corner of Scholls Ferry near 217?), and then the kind (typically young people, in their teens or so) that barely move the sign, try to look “cool” etc. I think that the latter are a little embarrassed and are trying to blend in, but they just stand out more. I bet it’s the same for the classes, if you totally get into it, not only will you blend in better, but you’ll certainly have more fun. That being said, I’m not sure I’m quite ready to give Group Groove a try yet.
