Like a lot of critics, I chafe against the arbitrariness of lists even as I recognize their utility. Since I can never stop at 10 — how could I, when something like 900 movies were released in North American theaters? — I picked 15 to match the year, ranked them and ended up fudging that count. So maybe technically it’s a top 20. The slots with more than one title aren’t ties, but double features, paired movies that complement, contend with or amplify each other’s best qualities.

Traditionally, a Zumba® workout uses Latin dance music and dance steps, but many teachers prefer to mix up styles and songs with international music, rock and pop classics, and even hip hop. Most classes begin with a few slower songs that are used to lead the class in warm-up stretches. This part of the class is very important, as proper stretching can prevent injury throughout the fast-paced workout. After the main section of the workout is completed, students may go through a similar stretching session to help cool down the body.
In the apparent belief that “lower for longer” now means “lower forever”, investors have been piling into EM assets in recent weeks.

For people with health concerns, it is important to remember that a Zumba® workout is heavy aerobic exercise. Even workout fanatics can find themselves panting and needing a break after just a few songs. If dizziness or nausea occur, students shouldn't be afraid to take a break, get some water, and sit out a few songs. Completing a full Zumba® routine is something to be proud of, but it may take a few weeks of classes to reach that level.
