Remember back in June when I road tripped it with a bunch of Zumba Instructors to ZIN Day in Toronto? One of the major perks to going to ZIN Day was being in the live taping of ZIN 41 which is coming out next month!
For those of you who aren’t Zumba Instructors, ZIN stants for “Zumba Instructors Network”. Each month all of the members of this network get a CD in the mail. One month (like this month) we will get a “Mega Mix” which a CD of Zumba music but has no choreography to go along with it. The following month we will get a ZIN CD/DVD, and the DVD has on it two sets of choreography we can choose to use (we can make up our own if we want) for all of the songs on the CD. One set of choreography is given in a one-on-one setting (one instructor on set showing you the routines), the second is a live class version where one or two instructors teach a live class using those same songs.
Which means I am part of the live class on the DVD being sent to all ZIN Instructors next month.
And that, is pretty cool.
Here is the preview
Did you see me? 😉 No, of course you didn’t! I’m in the crowd so it would be impossible for you to pick me out without a little help.
Here is one freeze frame from the preview that has me in it
(click to enlarge the photo)
There are a few others too, but I’m not going to bombard you with freeze frames of the DVD preview – I’l wait until I have the actual DVD to do that 😉
For my fellow ZIN’s, the only song I actually remember from the class is, “Now That We’ve Found Love,”
(which had some old school hip hop moves and a lot of samba lunges in the choreo)
but I remember liking the majority of the songs and routines. As soon as I played the preview and heard the Daddy Yankee “Pose” song I recognized it, and it really got me pumped. I usually get my Zumba stuff around the 20th of the month. I’m still waiting for this month’s Mega Mix so I’ve got at least a 30 day wait before I get to finally see the live class on the DVD.
I’m super excited!
Have you ever been an extra or in a group shot in a TV Show or movie?
Obviously this isn’t anything like being in a movie, but it’s still pretty cool! My biggest concern is that the only time you’ll be able to see me during the live class will be during arm moves. We were so close together there was not enough room for my massive wing span so I had to do these sad little versions of the arm moves so I wouldn’t take anyone out!
