Thanks to the YMCA of Greater New York for sponsoring this post.
Let’s get one thing out in the open right away — I cannot dance.
When I was young (6 maybe?), I took ballet and tap. For one year. My feet don’t quite cooperate when there’s choreography involved. In fact, it’s usually enough to keep me away from any type of choreographed group fitness class too. Even step classes back in the day made me really nervous.
When the YMCA suggested that I might like taking a Cize class – a cardio dance workout, I wanted to say no. I mean, look at this class! I have no rhythm and my body doesn’t move like that. I tried to come up with a lot of excuses for why I might not be able to go to class.
