Off to the Zumba Convention!
Alright, here we go! Time for the 2010 Zumba Instructor Convention in Orlando, Florida! I am currently on the plane heading to Chicago to change planes then to Orlando. I get in around 9pm tonight and I’m sure that there will already be tons of Zumba friends at the Marriot.
My mom is already there and will be taking care of a little grocery shopping for us. We like our fresh fruits, especially bananas for potassium during these five days of Zumba action. We brought like an insane amount of our own food, including nuts, dried fruit, oatmeal, protein powder and tuna. The prices at the convention hotel are crazy expensive and last year the lines were so long to buy food. At least we’ll guarantee that we’ll have more space for our Zumbawear purchases! I actually couldn’t believe how much I brought with me to the convention. I had to take 6 pounds of stuff out of my suitcase while I was at the airport since I was over the 50 lb limit – what?! Who really takes that much stuff for 6 days away? At least I was smart enough to bring an extra duffle for my return trip :P
So what is in store for me for the next few days? Lots of workshops and trainings! On Saturday, I am taking the Aqua Zumba training – let’s just hope the sun decides to come out and play on Saturday! I just spoke with my mom before I got on the plane and she said that it is pouring cats and dogs in Orlando right now! I’m not really sure if I am going to be teaching Aqua Zumba, but I figured that I could spend a day soaking up the Florida sun! Why not, right?
I’m looking forward to seeing all of my Zumba friends and family over the next few days! For those of you Instructors who couldn’t make it this year, please try to come next year! You will be missed! And you know who you are :)
To all of my students: I will MISS you! Keep on dancing with the fabulous Ruba and Gigi! Show them some of your wonderful Zumba love! I promise to come back from the Convention with some exciting new moves!
I’ll try to update my blog and facebook during the convention!
