Hi! I am so grateful that Zumba has brought my heart and soul back to the place of finding happiness through rhythm and movement. I've been a dancer since I was able to walk (baby pictures prove that I would rather be wearing tap shoes) ;-) Instead of following the path of becoming a professional dancer, I decided that I would rather take care of them so, 15 years ago I pursued a career in Physical Therapy with Dance Rehabilitation as a specialty. Over the years I married the western world of Physical Therapy with the eastern medical art of Acupuncture and focused on treating the NYC Ballet, Broadway and professional dance companies in NYC. I just finished traveling with the USHER: OMG TOUR as Health Manager and I was given the opportunity to meet and work on the best dancers and choreographers on the HipHop circuit today. I would say my "style" is an eclectic mix of Latin fusion hip hop jazzy funk. I incorporate all rhythms into my classes and am glad to have hung up my Salsa heels in replacement for my Adidas high tops!
