The streetdancing class at the gym I go to has just become a regular one every Saturday. These last 3 Saturdays, several of us mommies either linger after an earlier yoga class or come in just for this one-hour class.
Today, we had a new classmate….a grandma! For a while there, I was a bit concerned about her since I was not too sure if she could keep up with the rest of us who were younger than her but to my great surprise, she SURVIVED with flying colors!
Bismarc, our teacher, starts us out with head, shoulders and feet warm-ups set to hiphop music. Then he teaches us step after step, usually about 8-10 different routines to make up a complete dance. Every week he teaches us new dance steps combined with old ones learned.
The steps are not as complicated as the heart-stopping, one-hand stands and head-twirling ones done by kids half our age but they are enough to get the heart pumping real fast! Great cardio workout!!!
The mommies in my class are pretty cool. No one gets lost and it seems everyone seems to be able to keep up for the most part with the beat and the routines. More than just reaping the cardio benefits, all of us get such a high from it (and have fun too!).
A good priest-friend at our boys’ school, Fr. Guy, has “baptized” this Saturday group of ours the “YO MOMMAS”. Hehehe. I like that name…..
