****UP TO THE MINUTE NEWS:****

Starting November 1st, 2017 I will teach Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays AND Saturdays at LA Ballroom Dance Studio at 10am!

FIRST TIME TO ZUMBA????  HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Running Shoes will make moving around MUCH more difficult.  

Cross-trainers, dance sneakers or shoes with less traction will be best.


I always double up on my sports bras!  

There is a lot of shaking, shimmying & jumping, so TWO sports bras are better than one ;-)


As for 'jumping' or any other movement that doesn't make you feel "good", DON'T DO IT!  

My rule is: "Just keep dancing", this is a class where I don't expect you to do every move just like me, I LOVE when people make the movements their own!  What feels great to my body, may not feel great to yours.  

Make this YOUR workout and dance your little heart out!


Zumba(r) Fitness is a workout based on "non-verbal cueing", while I do yell out some hints from time to time, my non-verbal cues are much clearer to follow, once you know what they are!  I hold up fingers to let you know 1, 2, 3, etc counts in a certain direction, I make a big circular motion if I want you to turn around, I point to my eyes when I want you to watch b/c I'm about to introduce something new.  And, I tap the top of my head to indicate we're about to "take it from the top" or start from the beginning again.  You DO NOT want to make these hand gestures with me!  It will only confuse you & me;-)  ...Just keep dancing!!

Why I love teaching Zumba(r) Fitness Classes

‚Äč

The only thing I love more than dancing is laughing!  My background is mostly hip hop and Latin Ballroom, so Zumba Fitness is a perfect match for me.  

My classes are targeted to ALL levels! I hope you feel welcome, know that I'm on your side and I want you to have FUN working out.  I've posted some getting started videos below.

If you're not quite ready to join a gym, I offer studio classes with no membership required!  

Come out and lose yourself in the music and moves of my Zumba Fitness classes in Sherman Oaks and North Hollywood!  Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I hope to see you soon!
