I started going to Zumba regularly 3 times a week starting in June. I had gone to the class with a friend a few weeks prior, and had a pretty easy time following along with the instructor. I had done video games like Just Dance! and felt that was pretty easy, so this was similar since you follow along with the screen - how different could that be with an instructor!? I love it now.
Don't feel intimated. Honestly, in my class, we have mirrors on every wall and I am usually watching what I am doing than seeing what everyone else is doing in the class. And being a new person, I would recommend NOT standing in the back of the class, since you have a harder time seeing the instructor if the class is full. You obviously don't have to be up front, but somewhere in the middle can help you see better and catch on quicker.
I think you can burn anywhere between 300-600 calories in an hour sessions, and the time goes by SO fast! Have fun, it's a blast!
