Are you the rebellious type? It’s ok. It happens to the best of us…
I was recently reminded about being raised a certain way and then deciding to live another way as an adult. Has that ever happened to you? So is my experience with dancing.
I am Goldilocks
I really want to turn into a runner but I discovered that I am a Goldilocks, fair weather runner. I don’t like it too hot or too cold when I run outside!
So while avoiding running on the questionable weather days, I took up Zumba. If you have never tried Zumba, YOU HAVE TO! This is coming from one who fights exercising!
Gun Barrel City (GBC)
Sam and I venture out to the country as much as we can. We have a place on Cedar Creek Lake and even though it is just an hour away from Dallas, it seems like a world away. We sometimes need to get to the “big” city in the area so we go over to Gun Barrel City (I’m not kidding – that’s the name!) population 5,759.
Driving down the road in GBC, we passed a sign and I just about had a coronary. See if you can pick out the significance of this announcement.
We grew up Baptist, and if you know anything about Baptists and anything about Zumba, you KNOW that this just can’t be! BAPTISTS DON’T DANCE!
Maybe my rebellious streak is why I love Zumba! Maybe, that’s why in high school I was in the drill team and went to my senior prom (I lived Footloose!) and why I have done several other things that you will never know about.
Enforcers of the Rules
I imagine if my church would have had a truck like GBC, they would have come and drug me away from the prom and took me home immediately!
So, thankfully Zumba is now everywhere. Here is a another place in GBC.
Here is a place in Tool, Texas, population 2,258.
And this is why growing up I always wanted to be Methodist (dancing is allowed and no church on Sunday night!)
The Joy of Dancing
So whatever, your hang-ups about dancing, I just want to say, “Lighten Up!” It’s a lot of fun.
YMCA, anyone? (I think we’re on the C but maybe not!)
If You Want to Try Zumba…
I started out with this one:
AND then got this one:
Get Your Groove Back!
If Zumba isn’t an option for you, find some music that you love that makes you move.
Turn it up loud and get after it!
You don’t have to be good at it, just move!
There is a reason why they say – Dance Like No One is Watching – it’s for me and for you. 😉
Do You Like to Dance?
Do you like to experience the joy of dancing or have you always been a wall flower? It just might be time for you to get out on the dance floor (in the privacy of your own home, of course!) and shake it.
