Playlist for 7/21 - 7/23

Well, what do you do when you're traveling on the road for over 2500 miles? How about choreograph some Zumba, baby? That's what I did (all in my head while driving) and I put it down on foot last Thursday night. So it's a brand new program (with the exception of the warm-up "Calle Ocho" song that I hope you'll find super fun:

I Know You Want Me - Calle Ocho - Pitbull (warm-up)
19 Noviembre - Zumba Megamix 10 (Cumbia/Salsa)
La Cumbia - Zumba Megamix 11 (Cumbia)
Down - Zumba ZIN 19 (Reggaeton)
Na De Na - Megamix 11 (Hip Hop)
Hava Negila - Megamix 9 (Israeli)
Wanna Be Startin' Something - Michael Jackson (POP)
Heche Palante - ZIN 21 (Bellydance/Reggaeton)
1+1=2 - Megamix 11 (Swing/Jive)
La Carcacha - ZIN 19 (Cumbia)
Causa y Efecto - Paulina Rubio (Jive)
Push Push Push - ZIN 19 (Cha Cha Mambo)
Sigue La Cumbia - ZIN 19 (Cumbia)
Corazon Perdido - Fanny Lu (Latin POP)
You Are Not Alone - Michael Jackson (Cool Down)
The Earth, the Sun, the Rain - Color Me Badd (Cool Down)

This repertoire is my special tribute to MJ who was one of the main inspirations of why I dance. If Paula Abdul ever leaves this earth, I will be even more traumatized!

And don't forget, if you ever have a song request, just let me know anytime during class and I'll take care of that right away. I don't know how I do it, but there's a lot of songs stored in that brain and body of mine!

C ya at the Y - Forever Dancing,
Myra :-)

We're Baaack!

Wow! What a road trip, 17 states in 17 days: Pennsylvannia, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oaklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and Southern Ohio. One of the longest summer vacations ever! It was absolutely wonderful to see our family again after 3-5 years (Greg and the kids hadn't been back for awhile). This summer we were able to visit all of our family (most importantly my daughter) and some of Greg's cousins from CA. Lake Tahoe is breath-taking, as always and it was such a blessing to hang out there for as long as we did.
