I found Zumba during a very challenging time in my life. My husband was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 24 and going through aggressive treatments. Of course my stress levels were very high, and Zumba became a type of therapy for me. I really looked forward to my Zumba classes because I could escape reality for an hour, enjoy the music and dance as if nobody was watching. I became an instructor two months before my husband passed away because I wanted to give back to people what I was receiving through regular class attendance: peace of mind, an escape and happiness.
When I teach Zumba, I think about what my students might be going through in their own lives. I hope that I can transmit the same peace that I feel when I do Zumba and provide my students with an hour of well-being therapy.
Come to one of my classes, and you will want to come back for more!!
