Hi,
I currently go to zumba and really really love it! I was wondering when did you guys as instructors feel like you were ready to start teaching. There is an instructor seminar in 2 months here and I am itching to go. I just don't know if I am ready.....
Thanks so much in advance for all your advice.

I agree with KSTYLE: if you have any kind of friendship with her, you could casually ask "what do you think of the new songs on ZIN 42? Are you planning to use any of them?" Maybe that would open the door to a conversation about why she never does new songs. Does she lack the confidence to try something new? Is she obbssessed with keeping everything the same? Afraid of change? Is it that she doesnt belong to ZIN and has no new music or choreo ideas? I would be really curiuos as to WHY she doesnt change it up!! And does she still have people in her classes???? If so, how does she keep them???? I cant imagine doing the same routines week after boring week!! I change my routines as much (or more) for MY benefit as the students'!! Please try to find out WHY--now I'm really curious!!!
But, overall, if she enjoys sameness, and people are attending her classes--well, then that's her business! Dont understand it, but everyone's different. I wouldnt "intervene" unless she seems to want your help.

As her friend you could say something. Is she ZIN? Is she getting new songs? Maybe she needs help with choreography.

HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT??

I have been made aware that one of my friends (and fellow Zumba Instructors) has been teaching her Zumba classes (...many classes each week) using the same playlist for OVER 4 YEARS!

When I was a new Zumba instructor, I would take her class for practice. I went to 3 classes, months apart, and her music/ choreo never changed! I was so annoyed, I never went back! I'm positive that I'm not the only one who avoids her classes because of it!

Would you approach someone about an issue like this if they were a regular instructor at your gym? Or just let the members attendance tell the story?
