Flyer I'm working on for Mia for an upcoming event. Should be fun. U-Jam meets Zumba! Not sanctioned yet by UFC so it's still subject to change.

End of Another Era

September 7, 2012

Many things are changing for my favorite Zumba instructor, Mia. As I reported in my post, End of an Era, she is no longer teaching the 24 Hour Fitness class in Antioch on Tuesday mornings. Big Sigh.

Last Saturday, September 1, was her last day teaching at Sanctuary Ministry. She was one of the first Bay Area Zumba instructors and she paved the way for many successful, current Bay Area instructors. So this flyer is no longer valid either (click here). But I did revise it so that she could use it as a generic flyer for all her classes. So even though she has gone from two of the locations we were used to seeing her in, she is still all over the Bay Area! Her Zumba Pager here (click here)!

Viva Mia!

Zumba Updates

July 18, 2012

Classes at CVDA have been going great! I've got a few mother/daughter duo's (16 year olds) -- only one set here today. It is SOOOO cute! Our smaller room can comfortably accommodate about 15 people. A couple of Thursday nights ago, 25 people showed up and we had to move to the big room! Fun, fun, fun! And by the way, the lovely young lady in the hat has lost mondo pounds and is in a size 6 (picture deceiving). She did not lose all the weight through Zumba but recently added it to her repertoire and continues to lose!

Clayton Ladies

Mia put on a 4th of July Zumba Master class (flyer below). IT WAS THE PARTY OF THE CENTURY! Over 200 people came! 10 instructors graced the stage and although a little crowded, a great time was had by all. It was so good to see so many talented and different styles! Mia's husband and daughters, as well as Adrienne and Tammy, helped with the BBQ afterwards. We really must do this again soon! I've uploaded a zillion more pictures on my Phanfare site, I would be glad to share the password with you, just send me an email for it to Additionally, if you absolutely loved any of these guys and would like to find out where they teach, just go to their Zumba profiles. I've included the links in their names (from left):

Master Class Instructors

We were at Eagle Lake last week and I must tell you, I missed my Zumba classes SO much! The ones I teach and the ones I take! I didn't make it to Amelia's awesome class on Sunday, but I did teach mine on Monday, then I headed over to Mia's at UFC.

On Tuesday (yesterday), I went to FOUR classes! I started out my Tuesday as usual at Mia's class at 24 Hour Fitness in Antioch. Guicho was there, guest instructed and it was tremendous fun as always. Then, Alex had a special class for his birthday at Pacheco and yes, I went! Alex's class was great fun as always! Andrea and Yuyi did a special little tribute dance for him. For Alex's profile/classes click here.

Andrea and Yuyi

The best 'drive by' instructor was in the house, too! Miss Jazzie Jazz Evans (click here for profile)! I was honored to be photographed with them.

Jazzie, Alex, Rosy

Then a Special Birthday cake for Alex. And they're off to the celebration at Lisa's!

Alex' Birthday

I, however, continued on with my third Zumba class of the day with Mia, at Sanctuary. There's a drive by there, too! Thayna is in the house and samba'ing like no other! They were moving so fast, my camera couldn't keep up. I did a routine with Mia...had a fabulous time and then.....

Mia and Thayna

Headed to my fourth Zumba class of the day with Mia at UFC. Thayna came along as Mia's guest. She did a fun little routine that Theresa would have loved! We did some routines together then Edward did a beautiful routine as well. A beautiful Zumba end, to a beautiful day. And I think I burned about 1, 800 calories!


If you're looking for a class on Friday evening, Thayna and Roberta are having a special class! This Friday, July 20 at 7:30 p.m. at El Rancho, 1450 Monument Boulevard in Concord for only $3 (THREE). Free parking! Questions? Contact Roberta at 925-577-8323 or Thayna at 925-286-0782. You can also visit their profiles at Roberta Santos and Thayna Marcelino.

I'm also missing my Bryan Guzman (click here for profile) and Marisa Fraile (click here for profile)! Hope to see them Friday!

I love spreading the Zumba Love and helping you find more and more instructors to enjoy!


My current passion...Zumba!
