Zumba Mega Mix 51

It’s new music day! Usually the new Zumba releases come on the 1st but because of the holidays Mega Mix 51 just became available on ZIN Now today. As usual, I haven’t really had a chance to listen to it yet as I’m writing this only seconds after downloading the songs. I’m hoping there are some good ones though as I need to put together a few new routines this week! Though honestly, I am still only just starting to listen to Mega mix 49 and 50 since finally burning them to a CD a week ago. Eeep!

Zumba ZIN 60

Hi everyone! Before I get into this month’s Zumba release, I wanted to take a second to tell you why there have been no new videos since the end of October. On October 30th I started getting sick and ended up with a lung infection & bronchitis (which I think I mentioned to you all already). I wasn’t allowed (nor could I) exercise until it started to clear, and even now I have a bit of a lingering cough. Right after that, my grandmother passed away, and then last week I slipped and sprained my foot (I’ve had x-rays so I know there is no fracture), and yesterday woke up with strained muscles in my upper back/neck. Needless to say, I’m hobbling my way through my classes the best I can, but I’m still in no share to record videos. So, until I get my sick and injured body pieced back together I’ve had to put #FitnessFriday on hiatus. But I will be back! I promise!

Now let’s move on to the reason you are here – Zumba ZIN 60!

Zumba Mega Mix 50

What’s a better way to kick of the week than with new tunes? It’s a new month and that means new Zumba music! And this is when I realize the shame that I still haven’t used and songs off the ZIN from last month. Yikes. Gotta add that to my to-do list. Anyway, let’s check out what’s on this month’s Mega Mix shall we?

Halloween Dance Fitness: Thriller

What is Halloween week without Thriller? I mean really! I can’t NOT do it. I only bring it out once/year and only for a handful of classes and it would seem almost criminal to not to the most iconic Halloween song of my generation.

Because I’m a super nerd, I know the entire Thriller dance from the music video but that is much too complicated and involved for teaching in Zumba, so I’ve created this routine which simplifies it down to around 6 moves.


Because it’s a longer song and the moves don’t follow the Zumba formula I generally take 2-3 minutes to go over all 6 moves before I start the song so everyone has an idea of what is about to go down. 😉 This is also the only regular Zumba song where I will verbally cue now and then to tell people what is coming next. Every time I’ve done it I’ve been really impressed with all my participants – in fact this week I taught it to my after school program kids (mostly grade 4’s) and they were great!

Unlike the other routines I shard this week, this one does take a fair amount of musical memorization, but as long as you know the basic moves it’s easy to tell when the chorus is coming up and otherwise you just repeat as you need.

The video is pretty laughable, you seem much less insane when doing these types of things with other people around you. Or at least I like to think you do. 😉

If you give it a try let me know how it goes!
