MOVEMENT IS A WAY OF LIFE FOR ME!

NEW MOVES FOR ZUMBA!!!

Zumba has recreated and improved Zumba Kids & Zumba Kids Jr. (formerly Zumbatomic) and created Zumba Step taking your Zumba journey to the next level.


Fortunately, I have both licenses!!  I've been teaching Zumba Kids for about 3 years and Zumba Step since it was created. 

Children love the music and choreography, and Step is without question a serious workout. 

Hope to see you in a class sometime soon. 


Zumba Kids & Kids Jr

Zumba Kids and Kids Jr. are great exercise programs for any child who loves to move and for even those who don't.  The value of team work and moving as a whole will enhance any childs awareness  and mobility.


Zumba Step moves your floor work to another level,  to the step.  This is a fantastic work out.  Toning your legs, core and an your entire body while still  dancing and singing to your favorite Zumba tunes.

Welcome to my Zumba┬« Instructor Website. 

I've been teaching Zumba since February 2010.  I have licenses in Basic Zumba 1 & 2, Zumba Gold, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold Toning, Zumba Kids, Zumba Kids Jr. , Zumba in the Circuit and Zumba Step.


I am a retired professional dancer from Philadanco, with many years of movement, teaching and choreography under my belt. 

My love for Latin Movement , "Salsa", began when I was 15 years old.  Since then my Latin Movement journey has expanded on  the dance floor with Mambo, Merenge, and Bachatta.  


I love working with my students with movement vocabulary and rhythms.  Seeing my students move with confidence and comfort is a teachers/instructors ultimate goal. 


Join me on the dance floor for an international journey with movement.
