What do I do when work is stressful and I can't think of anything to write about for this blog? I ZUMBA! (thanks Fen for joining me!)

Semi-finals are here so just a few more weeks to see William Levy strut his stuff on Dancing with the Stars! Even though he definitely comes in #1 for charisma, I'm not betting he'll win because some of the ladies (i.e., Katherine) have better lines, footwork and all that. I made one more video in honor of him before the season ends. This was his salsa from week 3, which I like the best so far because he seemed to be having the most fun with it. You can see his original dance here. I love the song accompanying it "La Vida Es Un Carnaval," which was actually sitting in my iPod playlist for a few years because I couldn't think of interesting choreo to match it. That song with Levy moving to it was all the inspiration I needed!
My Zumba students have been bearing my mini obsession with William Levy this season on Dancing with the Stars. I first noticed this Cuban cutie patootie over a year ago on Real Housewives of Miami and wasn't surprised when he became an overnight sensation on DWTS. The guy is easy to look at, is a natural on the dance floor, and seems genuinely humble about all the attention...what's not to love? Anyway I was so excited to see him highlighted every week that I incorporated some of his dance moves into my Zumba routines. A few brave class members indulged my creative juices by dancing with me in a couple of YouTube vids. Below is a variation on Levy's second dance, the quickstep. Not the typical Latin flavor but still a lot of fun! You can check out his original dance here.
