#1: I can't find any quotes about 'not changing a good thing'.
#2. THEY CHANGED A GOOD THING DAMNIT!
ZUMBA OLD SCHOOL
If you have done Zumba (especially the original DVDs) you know that Zumba was originally completely latin music and dance based and was focused on EXERCISE and FITNESS!
If you have done a traditional Zumba class or the original DVDs you know there are original movements that include Cumbia, Merengue, Salsa, Reggaeton, some Middle Eastern dances like belly dancing and some African rhythms.
If you like traditional/original Zumba I can bet you that you WILL NOT LIKE THE NEW ZUMBA they have come out with.
Remember I ordered the new EXHILARATE DVDs? I was so excited to try them out.
Remember I briefly talked about how Tanya Beardsley (my girl crush and Zumba role model) is no longer doing Zumba? Well, I think it is because of what Zumba has become!
HOLY HELL PEOPLE!
STOP CHANGING A GOOD THING
What used to be a good, sweat inducing, mind provoking and FUN workout is now so focused on glitz and glamour and the 'club atmosphere' with moves that could literally give you whiplash and no helpful verbal cues like in the original DVDs that I couldn't believe it was the same product.
This isn't from the DVD.
Apparently Melissa Chiz doesn't merit any google photos yet.
Melissa Chiz. ((sigh))
I am sad.
I miss Tanya.
But I am more motivated than ever to keep the ORIGINAL ZUMBA EXPERIENCE ALIVE!
