Do You Have Song that'd be Perfect for Zumba??


Since I'll be on vacation for the next 3 weeks, (although I am teaching on Thursday, June 25th) I thought it'd be fun to collect some song suggestions, if you have one. This way while I'm traveling across the country back to Nevada/California, I could have a few songs ready when I return on July 14. I am open to all genre; any latin/international, hip-hop, disco, rock (as long as it has a dance beat), country, and Pop. If you have suggestions for our cool-down, I'd love to see those too.

If you can't leave a comment here, please feel free to email me marangi6@yahoo.com

I hope you guys have a great time with my subs:
Milva Wagner (6/30, 7/2 & 7/9)
Kathy Zemke (7/7)
Kale Azzan (6/23)

Have a fun and safe summer - and keep on dancin'!

New Warm-Up & Cool Down



I'm adding a new warm-up song today, Pitbull's "Calle Ocho". You just hear that song and it's an instant dance party! I've also added Beyonce's Halo to our repertoire...it's a little older but it's perfect for winding down :-)

Here are some of my latest LO's. It's kind of ridiculous to have to schedule time for scrappin' and relaxing...in the summer. But, alas - if I don't I will go mental...again. Blast that summer semester homework!!!

My Zumba playlist will remain the same this week, I'm still trying to perfect "Wanted" and I'm going to be adding a new Fanny Lu song (LOVE HER) probably on Thursday.

Have a great week - and thanks for the dance!

One Crazy Summer!



Talk about OVERWHELMED!

I've gotten myself in a pickle with attending summer semester (wasn't really realistic about the homework load) so now I'm totally stressing about the next 6 weeks...pray for me! It's hard to adjust to new stressors and re-igniting the HEALTHY forms of coping mechanisms...
The only form of escape I have right now is teaching my Zumba classes so I thank you all for joining me and giving me a reason to dance. I have another new song this week - one that I was searching for forever and ever and finally found it: WANTED - Jessie James. It's not Latin, but it's a party song, no less!

Playlist for 6/9 - 6/15

Escape - Julio Iglesias (mmm, mmm, mmm!)
Bidi Bidi Bom Bom - Selena
Chismosita - ZIN 20
How Do You Sleep? - Jesse McCartney
Lagartija Azul - ZIN 17
Flamenco Oriental - Dalida
Pasarela - ZIN 20
Tuno Es Para Mi - Fanny Lu
Wanted - Jessie James
Maria - Ricky Martin
The Climb - Miley Cyrus (yes, I really do LOVE her!)

You guys have a fabulous week and hope you're enjoying your summer so far...
Forever dancing,
Myra :-)
