BBM Channels require the BBM app on your smartphones and the creation of a BBID, if you don't already have one.
I specialize in teaching and learning. That means I’m facilitating for your benefit every time I lead a class. I want you to succeed in your exercise goals, whatever they are, no matter how small or how large. I know what it feels like to be too skinny or to have to lose weight for the first time. We can do this, one dance step at a time!
I MAKE AND TEACH VISUAL ARTS.
That means my classes will be fun, challenging, and full of zwag! Personal flavor is strongly encouraged! It’s your body, your workout. Just do what you can each time you attend!
I LIKE TO DANCE.
I’ve always loved to dance, but I was too shy as a child to take classes. As a young adult I re-discovered dance more formally and also spiritually. My formal dance studio training includes ballet/pointe, tap, jazz, Hawaiian, Tahitian, Irish step (Riverdance), modern, and lyrical. My other dance experience includes Philippine and Hebraic folk, as well as the leading of praise and worship dance teams. That means my classes are definitely including a full variety of international rhythms as much as possible!
I TOOK A ZUMBA® CLASS - OR TWO.
I’ve tried every form of fitness workout, but the exercises were mostly work. It wasn’t until I first studied for fitness certification in 2000 that I also discovered dance aerobics, Kari Anderson (Seattle Gym, formerly ProRobics), ballet barre fitness, and a renewed enjoyment for my fitness program. My husband and I couldn’t afford the ACE Exam testing or traveling fees at the time. I do intend to re-visit that too!
Much later, in 2013, to get me out of the house and out of my funk, my mom and husband took me to a month of Zumba® classes at the Philippine Cultural Center with ZIN™ Justine Ford. I was hooked! Thank God for husbands and moms! I was sad to move away in 2014, but then I found the classes with ZIN™ Jennifer Collins, whose venue hosted for the first time the Basic 1 Training I attended. And here I am for you!
I am very thankful for every ZIN™ who has influenced me so far. Besides the above-mentioned two, I also include ZJ™ Rita Cohen, Virginia ZES™ April Smith, and the following ZIN™ for their blogs on playlists, choreography, and for sharing the overall examples of their Zumba® lives: Elizabeth Tran in Newport News, VA, Ching Brubaker in Wichita, KS, and Rob Powell in Charleston, SC. There are continually others, like ZJ™ Von Stanley Gossi, who taught me more about Cumbia in 3 hours than I have ever learned about any other dance form in years!
