I have a lifelong passion for dancing and I absolutely love Zumba Fitness. I have a very extensive background in Dance; I began at age 3 and took Modern, Ballet, Tap, African, Jazz and Taratibu classes as a youth. I became a student\teacher at age 13 and went on to select Dance as one of my majors in college.
As a group exercise instructor, I pride myself on creating a class environment that is welcoming to each and every participant. I welcome everyone with a smile and make sure to engage the class with lots of energy and a positive attitude. If I had to describe my class in a few words, I would say that the vibe is fun, intense and high energy.
