Welcome to my Zumba® Instructor Website. 

I became a Zumba® Fitness Instructor in February 2010 because I love Latin movement.  Movement is a way of life for me. Bringing more than 30 years of extensive dance training and experience, and several years of fitness instruction to my classes.    

I am a former member of the prestigious Philadanco, (Philadelphia Dance Company).  I have performed in Opera's and Stage Productions.  I have been a dance educator for over 20 years.

My dance training covers, Cecchetti Method/Ballet, Horton and Graham/Modern, Luigi/Jazz,  African/Carribean, Ballroom, and Latin movement.  For the past 18 years I have had the joy of being a Musical Theater choreographer in area schools and small theater. I have also choregraphed for competitors competing in Dance Competitions, Corporate Programs, Stage Productions , and Opera.  I taught fitness in Washington, D.C., Maryland and in a local Philadelphia hospital.  In addtion, I am a retired professional NFL Cheerleader with the Philadelpha Eagles and a member of the NFL Cheerleaders Alumni, Team Ra Ras..

 

Joy through movement has been my life goal.  Latin movement has been a constant in my life since I was a teenager.  When I was introduced to Zumba, I realized it was a perfect match for me.  With my extensive dance background, fitness experience and my passion for Latin movement, there was no turning back.   The dance experience in my classes is precisely that, a dance experience.  Salsa, Merengue, Bacchatta, Tango, Belly Dance, Polynesian, Broadway,  and other styles of movement will provide a well rounded cardio workout. We will travel around the world through movement. 

 

 

I teach in several locations throughtout the City of Philadelphia and neighboring suburbs. My current schedule includes 5 classes on Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia.   Please check the Class Schedule  or contact me  for more information.

If you love to dance, please join me on this extradinary continuous cultural journey.  

 

 I am available for Birthday Parties, Family Events, School Events, Pre-Event Warm-Up, Bridal Showers, Holiday Parties, Charity Events,  Corporate Events, Specialty Workshops,  and Master Classes, Private Lessons, Bachelorette Parties, Special Events, Demos, Conferences and Corporate Classes.   I look forward to meeting you in class.   

Thanks for visiting my website!
