I have been dancing for almost 30 years.  I competed in International ballroom and Latin dancing for over 5 years and was a USABDA National Finalist.  I’ve studied belly dancing and hip hop and performed at various venues in the Bay Area.  I have also performed with PB&G’s High Maintenance Salsa/Jazz team and in various local community musical productions.

My dance experience naturally led me to Zumba® in 2008.  Now I can dance in the morning in my sneakers, and I can dance to all my favorite genres in a one hour period.  I start with a  slow warmup focusing on all body parts to prepare you for lots of hip, chest, ab, arm, leg and foot action.  I feel the passion in the music I choose, whether Latin, hip hop, ballroom, showtunes, Arabic… I match fun moves to the rhythms in the song so that my students can feel the music and get a great cardio workout.  Finally, I lead a stretch cooldown with yoga elements to improve our flexibility and prevent injury.  Songs change from day to day, so no one gets bored.  
I’m a teacher at heart and when not teaching Zumba®, I am language coaching  and running Smooth English®.
Here is a description of Zumba for the website:
Zumba® fuses hypnotic international musical rhythms and tantalizing moves to create a dynamic workout system designed to be FUN and EASY TO DO!

Our goal is simple: We want people to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked. By integrating Zumba® into everyday life individuals may achieve long term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exhilarating hour of caloric burning, heart racing, muscle pumping, body energizing movements meant to engage and captivate for life!

The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. Add some Latin flavor and International zest into the mix and you’ve got ZUMBA®!

Utilizing the natural beat, tempo, and music transitions, the Zumba® dances seamlessly flow from one toning, strengthening or cardio move into the next.  Participants are constantly engaged and entertained with the variety of rhythms including salsa, merengue, cha cha, samba, belly dancing, cumbia, flamenco, reggaeton, hip hop, bachata, tango and more!  Zumba® breaks away from the typical 32-count aerobic format and uses the passion of the music as it was meant to be experienced.

Coining the concept of “fitness-party” and making fitness fun, Zumba® has spread like wild-fire, and has positioned itself as the single most influential movement in the industry of fitness.

Zumba® has a whopping 2 million students practicing Zumba® on a weekly basis.  Everyone is invited, from teens to seniors, both men and women.  Everyone loves Zumba®.
