When I saw the sign announcing a free hip hop dance class for moms at Miss C’s dance studio I thought one thing, “free exercise.” I also thought “buns of jello” and “uncoordinated,” but I quickly pushed those from my mind. After a year of not belonging to a gym, we just rejoined the Y (the girls absolutely love going to the indoor pool) and I figure between that and me bustin’ a move at this hip hop class that I can get some much needed exercise. Woman cannot live on Merlot and Cheetos alone, unless you’re Britney Spears and have a personal trainer at your beck and call.
I was pleasantly surprised, and a little fearful, that about half of the class was spent doing crunches, push ups, and strengthening our core. The instructor has a two-month old baby and admitted she’s using us as her fitness guinea pigs so she can get back in shape. Considering my “baby” is nearly 4 and two c-sections have not really helped my abs, I’m all for it.
We did some basic dance moves. I’ll never be a Rockette or a backup dancer for Beyonce, but it was a lot of fun. Plus the girls think mama is cool for taking a dance class.
On a totally random note, does anyone remember Zubaz pants from the early 90s? Apparently they are back. It’s Hammer time ya’ll.
