Zumba Convention 2017: Day 2 (Hip-Hop Turn Up and African Workout)

If you’re wondering why are the room keys pictured above here is the reason, Day 1 and over 30,000 steps on my Fitbit, you would have thought these keys opened the pearly gates of Heaven. The room keys were all I needed after Day 1 at Zumba Convention. 

Day 2 included Hip-Hop Turn Up and the African Workout. It was my first time taking both of these sessions, but being that I love Hip-Hop and African everything. I knew I was going to be crunk at both of these sessions. 

Me after Day 2, I told you right.. lol


Here is my Zumba Convention 2017 Day 2 experience in photos and a few videos! 

This was my first time in Hip-Hop Turn Up and I’m telling you for sure it was my favorite session. Gina and Dahrio are amazing presenters, not only that they are dance/marriage goals. This couple show beyond doubt, that having a big family should never stop you from living your dreams. They have 5 children and they are traveling the world dancing and simply rocking it. This session took me back to growing up in the 90’s with crisp choreo, old-school songs, and flavor.

It was also my first time “Entering the Jungle” with Ricardo and his brothers. This session was highly interactive and I learned tribal and modern choreography from Mali, Angola, South Africa, Senegal, Mauritius, and so much more. I took a deep journey into Africa and this experience was truly unforgettable.

My phone battery was depleted by the end of the African workout, so I had no footage of the experience, however if you are in the North Mississippi area you can come to my classes to experience these African moves. I teach every Tuesday and Thursday at 6PM. I promise you will be addicted!! 

Just me dancing, sweating, and in my happy place.
