Day 2: Six Zumba Classes in One Day

Posted on May 1, 2018 by under Travel, Zumba.    

Day 2 is the day I took six Zumba classes in one day. Even so, my Apple Watch still logged me under 40,000 steps for the day. I don’t know how people were getting upwards of 50K. Wow! I think this was my best day all week.

I originally planned to take four classes that day (the two that I registered for and the two that I registered Brian for) but, after looking at the schedule, I figured that I could squeeze in two more classes and so I did. LOL.

My first class of the day was Henry Cedeno’s Queen Bey Experience. I had to take a picture of the sticker because it matched my outfit perfectly!

My second class was with Kass Martin and Steve Boedt. I had two amazing classes in a row and was off to a great start!

I ran into the fabulous Chuany Kouloukas, who Brian and I first met on the Zumba cruise a couple of years ago.

My next class was with Ricardo Marmitte and Marcie Benavides where I met these two cuties — Keston Ross and Cody Olafson. They were promoting Keston’s new song that Cody choreographed a routine to. Keston performed the song (and danced too) while Cody led the routine.

Here’s a video that Natasha captured.

By the way, this is the Natasha – the person responsible for that awesome video you just watched. Thank you, Natasha!

My next class was Lindsey Taylor’s Pitbull Party in Star Lounge. It wasn’t part of the original plan for Day 2 but I knew I could fit it in and so I did. I got there early to get a good spot and caught the tail end of Ricardo Carbalho’s class.

I ran into these two Wichita cuties, Tammy and Rina. Every time I saw these two, they were wearing matching outfits. It was so cute!

Here’s a selfie of me with Lindsey. I’m so glad that I found the time to take that class because it was beyond amazing. Star Lounge is probably the crappiest class venue on the ship because you can’t see anything and there’s only a small dance floor and the rest is carpet. Lindsey used that room so well, though. I tried to avoid Star Lounge as much as possible because I get really frustrated when I can’t see what’s going on but I didn’t have that problem at all during Lindsey’s class. She taught from the front, the back, the middle, and the sides. She was everywhere! She used the room more effectively than anyone else who had to teach in there.

My next class after was with Nick Logrea and Steve Boedt. This was another class that wasn’t part of my original schedule for the day but I found the time to squeeze in. I met Nick for the first time on the cruise a couple of years ago and was very impressed so I didn’t want to miss him. And, of course, Steve is always so fabulous.

The best part is Kass was there and so I managed to get a selfie with her. It made Brian slightly jealous. He’d been trying to get a selfie with her for years!

My final class for the day was with Jhon Gonzalez and Anna Marchenko out in the Sports Court. I didn’t like dancing in the Sports Court that much because the floor is kind of grippy and I didn’t feel as comfortable twisting and turning. I felt like I really had to pick up my feet each time. Anyway, that was class number six and, even though, I changed sneakers halfway through the day, the insoles of my shoes were pretty beat down and my feet were killing me. So I left the class with 15 minutes left to spare. I hated doing that but my feet were on fire. I actually questioned how I was going to get through three more days of Zumba.

We had dinner in the fancy dining room with Natasha and, our new Australian friend, Kaveri that night and then went to the party but we didn’t stay late. My feet were killing me and I was honestly worried about how they would feel the next morning. I just wanted to return to the room and put my feet up.

That pretty much sums up Day 2. It was a full day of doing Zumba from morning until night. Check back soon for Day 3!
