Not too long ago, the Twirly Girls got a taste of U-Jam.  The U-Jam girls came in and did a demonstration during Trick or Twirl.  Check out the videos here:

I describe U-Jam as hip hop Zumba (and I describe Zumba as Brazilian Jazzercise).  It is basically a high intensity (although easily modifiable) cardio dance workout.

I have said before that I am a terrible dancer but I can somewhat follow an instructor.  I felt like I kept up the entire time, I got crazy sweaty and got a great workout.  I’m actually pretty sore today too!

Chandra, one of Bel’s original Twirly Girls from waaaaaay back in the day, is the main instructor.  She teaches at Twirly Girls on Sundays at 11:30 a.m.  Classes are $10 each or $80 for a ten-class punch card.   If you need more cardio in your life like I do, then give U-Jam a try!
