You pay money for an official Zumba Fitness shirt or tank top and then you grab a pair of scissors and start to cut and slash away!
I know. Terrifying, right?
But in the world of Zumba Fitness, it’s a fashion trend; it’s a statement – and it looks so amazing! (If you do it right!)
In all honesty, I have not been very brave…I envision cutting some of my Zumba clothes and then, I think…I just paid money for that shirt, and I’m not sure if I trust my cutting/slashing skills?
So – step #1 – Find an OLD t-shirt (yes, it’s fine to steal that ugly one that you really wish your significant other would FINALLY throw away, BUT I did NOT suggest it.)
Step #2 – Watch some videos on youtube.com for directions. (I did a quick search for “cutting zumba shirts” and found several fantastic tutorials.)
Step #3 – Practice … on an old shirt…or two…or three!
Step #4 – Cut and slash! (It doesn’t have to be the Zumba tank you love; maybe you want to go run to a local store and find a fun tank or shirt to practice on first…or if you’re brave…maybe you’ll go straight to your Zumba gear!)
Step #5 – Have a shirt cutting party!
I found some recent photos of some leading ZES (Zumba Education Specialists) in their cut/slashed gear. I hope you find some inspiration (and the courage I’m still lacking) and cut/slash away!
