Dance Fitness Warm-up: Despierta

Hi guys!

I feel like I’m having a bit of a mid-blog life crisis. I started sharing these weekly videos to bring something new to the site, but I really don’t know if anyone even watches them from these posts, or if all of the action is happening over on YouTube.

If you are reading this and normally watch my videos via my blog (versus directly on YouTube) can you please let me a comment below to let me know? If nobody is watching them here then I will probably discontinue cross posting them here. I’m not interested in posting simply for the sake of posting if nobody is actually using it, ya know?

Dance Fitness: Caramelo

I somehow managed to choreograph this routine in my head one day last week on my way to teach a class. It’s to Caramelo from Mega Mix 46. I choreographed it thinking it was a Cumbia, but then realized it was a Reggaeton but decided not to change my choreography, because well – I liked it.

This is another sort of middle of the road/lower intensity song, but only a few steps it is easy to learn and teach.


Side note – after watching this video I have decided these pants need to take a hike. #notflattering

If you give it a try let me know if you like it!

I’ll be back with another video on Thursday – I’ll be sharing a warm-up with you then!

VEDA (Vlog Every Day in April) 2015

I meant to post this last week when VEDA began, but it didn’t happen, and that’s okay, because now I can tell y’all about it and share my first 5 videos with you!


Basically every April and August the Interwebs celebrate VEDA by posting  (or attempting to anyway) every day for the month. I attempted VEDA last year but failed for a couple reasons, the biggest being I had to upload all my clips to my computer ,edit them, export and then upload to YouTube. It’s pretty time consuming to do that, especially if you’re doing it every day. After that I tried to vlog once/week but even that fizzled out quickly for the same reasons.

Kids Dance Fitness: Everything Is Awesome!

It’s the Thursday before Easter, which means it’s basically Friday, since tomorrow is Good Friday, which means that everything IS awesome ;) so it seemed fitting to share this video today!

Anyone with kids is going to recognize this song from The Lego Movie, and if you haven’t noticed, I like using songs from movies for my kid’s routines because they get a lot more into it when it’s a song they already know. Especially when dealing with kids 7 and under (so Zumba Kids Jr) which is the age group this routine is intended.

Spinach Dip Appetizers

I love spinach dip, especially if it’s homemade. And when I go to a party or potluck and see a lovely bread bowl filled with the stuff I know I’m in the danger zone. Why? Because I simply cannot have one or two “dips” and walk away. I want to set up shop next to the spinach dip and linger there until I’ve eaten it all. It can be a problem.

Because I’m the kind of girl who likes to indulge from time to time, I thought that I should come up with a different way to serve spinach dip that has a bit more portion control built in, and that’s how I came up with the idea for a spinach dip appetizer.
