    Just wondering out of interest!

    Our classes in the school and local village hall are quite full, approx 40-50 people, but when I see the videos on you tube, the classes only seem to have about 10-15 people.

    your classes are expensive shanny. 3 are free with my membership and i'm going to find another 2 to do and they're about £3.50 round here per class.

    Wow £3.50 is good. It can be pricey when I want to do 3 classes sometimes.

    Whoop! Go you!

    You will be fine - the day is knackering but really relaxed and friendly.

    Who is taking your course - I had Caroline Parsons and she is amazing!!

    Just ask if you want any more info.

    i'm really looking forward to it. just want to pass it really.

    i've got Jaime Farfan taking ours in sunderland. i'm going to wear my zumba stuff. my instructor said everyone was wearing it. haven't got the schedule yet but i imagine it's a full on day. i've only ever done a 1 hour class, non stop full on. i sweat like crazy it's dripping off me, but then i do jump and bounce and leap like a right fool.

    No it's only just around the corner. You will be really excited and nervous then. I really do hope I can do it next year.

    Do you think you will be doing classes when you get your certificate?

    Im really wanting to start Zumba but there are 80+ people in the classes round here and it puts me off a bit! Do you think its better to have more or less people in a group? Thanks x

    There are about 100 people in the class I go to on a Wednesday and I think it makes the hall a bit too cramped and I find I am restricting my movements a bit. On a Thursday I go to another class in a huge gym hall and there are maybe 40 people, lots of room to move but I don't think the instructor is as good, so I am going to skip that one and try and find an alternative class. My Tuesday class is the best its in a church hall and with maybe 40/50 people and we all just get really stuck in. I find if other people in the class are really good it makes me up my game
