I don’t know if it’s the kind of dancing you’re thinking of, but my 54 year old, 40lb overweight, two-left feet stepmother can Zumba like nobody’s business (and she’s already lost 10lbs…)

I was going to recommend Zumba as well! It’s a great way to start. I’d also recommend Cardio Barre if you have something like that in your area. If you are interested in doing contemporary or “technique” style dancing Cardio Barre is a great way to learn the terminology and get a freakin good workout!

In my opinion yes, contemporary isn’t where you should be starting. I suggest something easier on your body and on your mind (if you constandtly can’t get the moves you’ll get frusterated). I say try intro hip hop, or “zumba”

 

As a dancer I effin’ HATE HATE HATE zumba! If I want to work out, I’ll hit a gym. If I want to dance I’ll doll up and hit the club. Never once have I said I’d like to dance in scrubs at a gym… LOL I’m odd though zumba is hugely popular.

I agree with everyone, zumba and hip hop are a blast and a great workout; if zumbas not your thing give hip hop a try!  I’ve never sweated as hard as I did as when I took a Hip Hop class from Dave Scott at the Pulse workshop in 2008 in NYC!  I also recommend to try an adult Jazz class, same technical aspects as contemporary but the movement itself is a lot easier to comprehend and learn.  Contemporary is so stylistic and hard to pick up on for beginners.  Adult classes are geared towards dancers from beginners to old pros, its not a competition, everybody has a blast.

I’ve been dancing for 24 years and coached and choreographed for a HS dance team for 7 (4 national championships!).
