On the poll in the side bar.

Zumba your way!!!

One of my most favorite things about Zumba is that everybody does it differently, and everybody is right!!! Zumba is about expressing yourself through dance, releasing tension and stress through dance, finding energy and inspiration through dance, and getting in shape through dance. It is NOT about being the most perfect, precise, professional, technical dancer. Not only do Zumba participants vary in skill level, shapes, and sizes, but ZUMBA instructors do too!

We are getting closer to the end of our first session, which means new dances are on the way pretty quickly. I would LOVE to see all of you take the last couple weeks with these songs that you are already comfortable with to do Zumba your way! Throw in an extra arm movement, change the hips, increase/decrease intensity to fit your style and your needs! GIVE IT YOUR FLAVOR! Take the hour to do you, and don't feel like you have to do every move my way. As long as your shaking it, everybody's happy!

You guys rock! I honestly love teaching you. I look forward to Tuesdays and Thursdays nights all week, and carry the energy you feed me throughout the remainder of the week. Thank you for being a part of my passion.

ZUMBA wear

Want to dress the part? Check out the shop on There are plenty of adorable tank tops, pants, shorts, t shirts, and accessories to fit your style. Let me know what you want, and I can get it for cheaper shipping, once I get an order big enough. So start shopping, tell your friends to start shopping, get me to STOP shopping, and lets put in an order!
Remember- zumba prizes in June... be there!

The first PRIZE!!!

As promised, June will be a month of fun and give aways. Here is the first challenge:

Whoever makes it to the most classes in June will win a little Zuma pride, to wear on your arm.
Be advised that class will be cancelled on Thursday June 18th, because I will be shaking my booty with BETO PEREZ!! Yes. You read that correctly- I will be at a Zumba Master Class in Salt Lake with the creator of it all. Weeeehooo!!

Thursday's Class

Thanks to all the ladies that came Thursday! I felt pretty good about the class... the intensity was much better than Tuesday- where I continued to break down each song. SO next week I will not be breaking down songs. DO NOT let this discourage new comers, however. Just remind them that we do the same dances for 6-8 weeks, and it gets easier everytime they come back. I will also choreograph an additional warm up song that will preview all of the more difficult moves throughout the hour, so you won't feel totally clueless!

I am also hoping to get the routines recorded and added to the blog, so you can watch at home and know what is coming.
