Slide, Slide, Slippity Slide...

That's the song that  my Hip Hop dance instructor was playing when we walked into the studio. Well, actually the name of the song is Rapper's Delight but I just like saying, "Slide, Slide, slippity slide."  Maybe he thought it was funny to play that song since we were in a Hip Hop class. But whatever. It made me laugh.  The class was pretty full.  I believe the final count was 20 eager hip hoppers.  We came in all shapes and sizes and gender.  I didn't think there would be too many guys taking this class but there were. All chest-out and tight, ready to get their "hip hop" on too.  I absolutely loved this class! It was so much fun and even though I zigged when I was supposed to zag, I actually did alright. And I didn't bump into anyone or any object as I had feared.  The music was pulsating and rhythmic and loud.  The steps were "followable" -for me.   I was drenched in sweat by the time the class was over. Seriously. I know I'll be in pain in the morning. But it will be a good pain.
 
The next class is Thursday.  I'll be there!

Well there you go, Yvonne. The class is filled with new Gustabos and you're working out to Sugarhill Gang. What's not to like? Maybe they'll play my favorite next time:

Tonto, jump on it, jump on it, jump on it...
Kemosabi, jump on it, jump on it, jump on it...
Custer, jump on it, jump on it, jump on it...
Apache, jump on it, jump on it, wowowowowowowowowo!!
A-hunga-hunga-hunga-hunga

You can now say you are like Eminem: You are going to "hip til your hip don't hop no more." LOL. So glad that the class was fun and excellent exercise.

All - Yes it was a great class and one I will enjoy! I'm a bit sore today but nothing ibuprofen won't take care of!
