June Master Class

June 11, 2014

Coming up THIS Saturday is the next Master Class! If you've never been to a Master Class, you must try it. It does not mean it's more advanced or a higher level. ANYONE can attend. A Master Class is simply a special, not regularly scheduled class, with usually three or more instructors. They are typically held every month or more, which adds to them being special, and typically last for 90 minutes. No, you don't have to dance the whole time! You can take a break whenever you need to. They are sometimes fundraisers for any variety of organizations or just for the heck of it! They are always loads of fun and the best part is, you get to experience instructors that are not your regular class instructors. There's so much talent in the area that this is a good way to see much of it. I've had the pleasure of seeing all but one of these instructors and they are all marvelous!

You can pay $15 at the door or contact any of the instructors (or me) to purchase your ticket in advance for $12.

Hope to see you Saturday!!

My Zeeps

I've been back to several classes since my knee operation on May 1. I absolutely missed all my Zeeps! Here are just a couple of pics of my return (not teaching yet)! I sure missed dancing with Bryan and Marisa!

Alex' class at the Pleasant Hill Senior Center was a blast. Great location!

Me and Alex. AND, GREAT NEWS! Alex is going to teach the 6:15 class on Fridays at Thayna and Emely's Zumba Studio beginning June 20! Join us!

Zumba Class with Alex

At Bryan's class in Antioch, it is pretty normal to have a number of fabulous instructors in attendance. It's like a mini master class and we end up dancing for up to 2 hours! A blast. Marisa, Toby, Beatriz, Me, Zina, Nancy, Bryan, John and Jazzie.

Always a pleasure and a blast to hang out with my Zeeps! Although I didn't take pics, I went to Mia's class at 24 Hour Fitness Super Sport Walnut Creek today and I'll see Thayna and Emely tomorrow morning. So much talent...so little time...


Thayna's Under the Sea Zumba Birthday Party

May 23, 2014

We just celebrated Thayna's birthday with a little Master Class. I couldn't get over how cute they made the decorations! Even though I still couldn't really dance, we had a lot of fun with good people.

Aren't these cute?

I uploaded a bunch more pictures to my Phanfare Site, email me if you need the password.


Dancing Through the Decades

April 17, 2014

As usual, I took about a million pictures! I didn't edit any but if you like any, you are most welcome to download them. You can see the album at my Phanfare Site (click here). You should not need a password.

I was not able to dance because of my knee issue but luckily, the lovely Michele LaRocque joined the line up. Rauly canceled at the last minute because HE ended up in the emergency room with a knee issue. It was Mia's lucky day, though! Alex came in Rauly's place and saved the day! Although we did miss the Michael Jackson and Madonna songs Rauly had planned, we did have a very successful and fun master class!

Thank you to our wonderful team, Mia, Alex and Michele and to Thayna and Emely for allowing us to dance in their beautiful space!

After my closing statement at the Master Class, I really wished I would have added this little history lesson, although I'm sure I would have thoroughly embarrassed Mia.

Mia was the very first instructor in the East Bay when she moved here from Florida in 2006. She inspired and encouraged MANY of us, including Miguel, Bryan, Marisa, Alex, Guicho, and me, just to name a few. Because of her, there are now hundreds of instructors in the East Bay. Because of Mia, you have found your instructor that you are now in love with and we can ALL thank Mia for bringing Zumba to us. With open arms, she welcomed and supported all instructors who moved here.

Again, thank you SO much to Alex for filling in for Rauly and to Michele for filling in for me. This brings it back to how Mia started Zumba...with everyone supporting everyone. Me, I will always support my fellow ZINs and anyone who has the vision to start a studio and share the Zumba love and who do it with class. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the East Bay's Zumba Mami and class act, Mia!


Zumba Bites

April 4, 2014

We're heading into the second quarter of 2014! Where does the time go? It's been just over 3 years since I started teaching Zumba and I'm still loving every minute! My ZINaversary was on March 16. (Here's a link to that post.) I am teaching 6 classes a week. My schedule is here. My Gold class at 24 Hour Fitness continues to grow and it might be my favorite class to teach. Well, aside from all my other classes, which are also my favorite! It's so nice to teach at Thayna and Emely's where I have the backdrop of Motsy's art to go along with all the smiling, sweaty faces.

Thayna and Emely's Zumba Studio

Then there's the added pleasure of seeing Athena, the best baby in the world (aside from mine, of course). She loves watching the dancers and I'm sure she'll be up there with them in no time.

Thayna and Emely's Zumba Studio

I also got licensed in Zumba Step. I LOVED the class and Cheryl Hall, the ZES, was amazing! I don't know about teaching it though. I think I may leave that to the youngsters with good knees.

Zumba Step Licensing with Cheryl Hall

Now let's play small world for a moment. We were chatting after class one day and it turns out Pete went to high school and used to party with my sister-in-law, Kris. LOL! One of these days, we may even see him as an instructor, eh Pete? He's already getting stage ready. Also, he won the Rodan + Fields Redefine regimen we raffled off last month at Emely's Birthday Party.

Zumba Bites

And don't forget! We have our Dancing Through The Decades Zumba Master Class tomorrow! I will not be in the line up as my knee failed me but we do have the outstanding instructors, Mia, Michele and Rauly. Come join us!
