1 point for every dance break of at least 5 minutes - just put on some music and shake it! 1 extra point for every dance class and/or new dance style or workout you try. E.g., if you took a ballroom class at the Y that would be 2 points. If you do a youtube dance workout, (such as, the Booty Pop and Roll workout https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HR1WKGn85bs) you get 2 points.

Most points at end of the week wins!

    I will be back in next week when I get home from vacation. Dancing would have been great next week when I do 3 zumba classes and 1 line dance class.
