Yes, it isn't so bad doing weights/resistance on my own, but a class helps a lot for cardio days.  I checked the schedule and there is a cycle class on the day I was doing Zumba.  The time is less convenient but it can be made to work.

That's a good idea.  Maybe they've got some cool bikes. 
My wife did Zumba and felt uncomfortable. A bit too risque for her. She goes on the machines instead (you know, walking, hand rowing, etc.).

I am probably just over-sensitive.

I definitely don't think its sinful if there are no men around, but if the instructor makes you uncomfortable, I think you should listen to your instincts.
