Danceathon For Breast Cancer ~ An Awesome Morning!

Wow, I haven't blogged since New Years day! I'm hoping to get back to it more often.

This morning was such a fun morning! The group instructors from our O'Fallon, IL Golds Gym held a Danceathon to raise money for breast cancer. We truly have the best gym and wonderful instructors here! The classes offered are great and so much fun! I love the energy and the people! They are all super, fun, awesome friends to be around and always have a blast! I am very thankful to be a part of this awesome gym community.

So at 8:30 this morning everyone arrived ready to dance and have a good time. I worked the donation table and took lots of pictures and videos. The instructors worked hard getting everything set up and ready to go. Here they are~

Mikadya, Tisha, Libby, Char, and Donna
They are all FABULOUS ladies!

Char is our Zumba/Yoga instructor and is simply amazing! We love her! She led most of the dancing this morning. She is soooo good! Go Char!

Here is Mikadya our amazing Hip Hop Hustle and Turbokick instructor. We love her too! She ended the danceathon with some super funky moves! This lady can dance!

There was a pretty good turnout and the weather wasn't bad at all. Just a little warm, but there was a nice breeze. Thank goodness!

There were even a few honks from passing cars :-)
Such a fabulous and fun way to workout and raise money for a great cause!

Tisha and Donna working hard to get the stereo to work :-)

What a cute little helper at the donation table! Such a pretty smile!

She wore my black coin belt most of the time :-)

Shake it, shake it! Zumba is so much fun!

There was even a Drop it Like it's Hot contest. Here is Nicole with her wild and crazy moves! Whip you hair back and forth!!!!

And here is Jessica with her hot dance moves!

Here they are with their prize t-shirts! They dropped it like it was HOT!!! Woo Hoo!

Yummy brownies for after all that dancing! Who doesn't love brownies with cream cheese frosting! Mmmmm!
