Just like any other class, you have to learn the moves. First time I went to Zumba, I was an awful mess. Someone even commented on it after the class! But in a supportive way. She reassured me I'd get it. And she was right! I just needed to keep at it. Even though I've since quit Zumba, as it's not for me, I'm glad I stuck to it until I started to catch up and be able to go along with the moves better.
