About Me

I have been dancing since the mere age of five years old and choreographing since I was 10 years old.  Because of my love of music, dance, and fitness, it was only natural for me to fall in love with Zumba – the fun “exercise in disguise.”   I am very passionate about instructing Zumba and enjoy teaching others how to “feel the music” to the pulsating, rhythmic sounds of Latin and international music and dance.  It is truly an exhilarating feeling.  In addition, I enjoy the excitement and synergy associated with group exercise.  I am truly inspired by helping others and genuinely care about my students’ health and wellness.

 

In my class, you will experience a fusion of music and dance to include soca, reggaeton, salsa, samba, cumbia, merenque, African, belly-dancing, hip hip, and pop. Come “feel the music” and join my Zumba Fitness dance party. You will be sure to sweat, groove, and have plenty of FUN!

 

I instruct in Washington, D.C. and Maryland (see my class schedule on the “CLASSES” tab above).  Furthermore, I am available for demonstrations, parties, corporate and special events.  No fitness or dance experience necessary.  So, come get your dance on with me!
