Getting our Salsa on with the Xbox 360 with Kinect #MiCultura


I’m a Zumba LEGEND!!!!

Music is a huge part of the Latin culture.  I can’t hear music without moving my hips….it’s just in my blood.  Don’t believe me?  Get a group of Latinos together and turn on some music, everyone will be dancing.  When I picked up the Xbox 360 with Kinect at Best Buy a few weeks ago, you KNOW I had to have Zumba!  I mean, it’s the ultimate game.  It has fun music, Latin flavor and is a work out and a half!  It is full of all kinds of win!

My kids and I play Zumba all the time. I love the music that we can dance to, while learning some of the Latin dance moves.  Growing up no one ever taught me these dances, so I like to take all the help I can get!  I want my kids to learn the dances at a young age….learning through a game is even better!

From the looks of the above video, my kids need A LOT of practice!  My 6-year-old, Diego was VERY proud of getting two stars for his dancing.  He was a Zumba Trainee, but felt like he was a rock star!  Proud of my little man, he tries his hardest and doesn’t get as frustrated as my other two.


Although it is a dancing game, all of my kids love to play Zumba or any dancing game.  I think Zumba is the best because I like the music more.  There is a large variety of Latin music with different dance styles showcased on each song.

Even if you don’t have Zumba, you can still enjoy some Latin flava with your Xbox 360 with Kinect by utilizing iHeartRadio!  There are over 800 of the nation’s most popular live broadcast radio stations from 150 U.S. cities to choose from.

It’s time to start thinking about the holidays! 

This is a great gift to give a family member!  You can even send egift cards for the familia that isn’t near you!  You can purchase a Best Buy gift card and have it delivered within minutes.  They even have gift cards in Spanish!

    My favorite product is the Apple® – MacBook® Pro with Retina Display – 15.4″ Display – 8GB Memory – 512GB Flash Storage

    It would help me to research my family roots and stay in touch with family.

  2. Jacob says

    I would buy the GoPro Hero2 – it’s a great, affordable HD camera and it would help to caputure and preserve my cultural traditions and roots for future generations

  3. Margaret Smith says

    I’d love to get the HP – Photosmart 5520 Wireless All-In-One Printer.
    This would help me be able to print photo’s of my family and extended family to make albums of our family get togethers.

    I would love to have the New Ipad . it would help me in putting the music app and learn more notes to play on my Villon. Music and dancing is a tradition thing . i listen to all kind of music and i would enjoy it from classic to rap

  8. says

    The JVC-Everio video camera would allow me to record all the generations. As I recently lost my mom, you realize that your family is such an important part of EVERY culture, and you never know how long they will be with you.

    the Satellite Sirius radio, because here in Maine there are no Spanish language radio stations with music and my Guatemalan hubby would love driving to work each night listening to his fave music.

    One of their android tablets would be great so that I could keep in contact with family, near and far, all day long!

Im latina and my husband is african american(PC) and recently hes been asking me to teach him how to salsa because he saw that football player when he scores touch downs does a little salsa lol Its fun to watch him learn and the kids love dancing, anything that involves exercise is always a plus
