Greetings Infomaniacs,

Now that I have had a few sessions with a personal trainer, 
I must say I am very happy I decided to try it. I feel like 
I get so much more out of my workouts when I have somebody 
to show me exactly how to do each exercise. Plus, having 
her watch over me while I am exercising keeps me from 
getting lazy and not working as hard!

My other recent exercise adventure has been Zumba classes. 
Has anyone ever tried Zumba? It's a fitness program 
inspired by Latin dance and features different routines 
that incorporate Latin music and easy to follow dance 
moves. I like it because it's a lot more fun than most 
workout classes, and it's challenging to learn all these 
different steps. I feel a sense of accomplishment every 
time I master a new move! 

Since we are on the topic of dance, why don't we learn a 
little more about different styles of dancing?

The now famous tutu was first worn by Italian dancer 
Virginie Zucchi in 1885 at the Imperial Theatre in St. 
Petersburg, Russia. The tutu was actually designed several 
years earlier by French painter Eugene Lami, in the form of 
a mid-calf skirt.


The waltz is named for the German word "waltzen," meaning 
"revolve." This dance consists of rotating, flowing motions 
performed in triple time with smooth and even steps. The 
variations are the rapid Viennese waltz and the slower, 
dipping Boston waltz.


The earliest known dance marathon took place in England in 
1364. These marathons, known as "derbies," reached their 
height in the Depression era of the 1930s, when dancers 
went to great lenghts to compete for monetary prizes. The 
longest recorded marathon lasted 22 weeks, three days.
