Go Get Your Zumba On

Last night I attended a Bellydance + Pilates class in Tenth Avenue Park down in Chelsea, right across the street from Colicchio & Sons. We manage a small district there, and I just started doing the Facebook and Twitter (yes, please, go like and follow me, thanks!). It's really hard to pass by Colicchio & Sons and not go in for wine on tap, and instead go across the street to an exercise class. But this class is free, bellydancing is really fun, and the pilates part seriously kicks your core's butt. Me and my very sore upper arms highly recommend it. We all can do wine on tap after.

Speaking of free classes, while I was bellydancing and pilates-ing, my video intern, Adrian, was working on this Zumba video. This class is Thursdays, happens right in front of Macy's Herald Square, is free, like all our classes, and is a blast. I'm so there on Thursday. I'm hoping between Zumba and Bellydance I can shake away the last of the Baby Herald midriff for a bikini by August.

How adorable are those kids?! How awesome is Xavier, the teacher from Paul Pellicoro's DanceSport, our fantastic partner? God, I love summer in the city.
