About Me

Aloha, Hola, Obrigada and Hello! I've danced since I was 7 with ballet, jazz and tap, then went on to study many other styles in college in CA (got my BA in Dance & English, MA in English, entered a PhD English program and have kept dancing professionally as a freelancer in CA and HI). Although teaching English and dancing professionally are my first loves, engaging in clear COMMUNICATION (verbal and nonverbal) and inspiring others to live healthy lifestyles has become a great purpose for me in teaching group fitness with Zumba! Zumba is so much more than just another dance fitness format. As an instructor, I have met the most inspirational people and am always humbled and moved by students in class AND other ZINS…we do not perform, we lead! ;) The people in my classes are awesome…so high energy, so supportive of each other, so committed to becoming healthier than they were yesterday…basically, committed to being the best versions of themselves! I'm just the host and greet everyone at my parties! I just want you to move without judgement in a fun and safe manner in my classes…we are a crazy familia!  Join me! You don't have to be a "trained dancer" as Zumba Fitness is a fitness class with dance elements, NOT strictly a dance technique class! Discovering fun fitness in Zumba (along with other formats I teach, like pilates, yoga, hip hop/ dance club fitness classes, HIIT, and Barre Sculpt) helped me regain a healthy lifestyle when I didn't even realize I needed it, and as a proud momma and military wife, I know how difficult it is to make time for ourselves for workouts! Please come join my party and we'll have a BLAST! Looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you!!! Be blessed!!! Besos...
