Dream big ..... cuz you never know!
Picture this ..... a good friend of mine says to me, "hey, you should try this class with me - I think you'll love it!" - so in January of 2011, I took my first Zumba class. I remember leaving class thinking "WOW - what just happened and HOW does she do that with her body?"
I was completely and totally hooked!
After some serious "awe-struckness" with my amazing instructor Nadi, I finally approached her about the idea that I might possibly start teaching Zumba. My idea at the time was to volunteer teach at the Surrey Women's Centre and give back to an organization that helped me through some pretty low times of my life. I also approached the Maxine Wright facility and thus began a lifetime love of Zumba, dancing and sharing the freedom that comes with each and every class!
Volunteering to teach Zumba classes was a fantastic transition for me. I then started teaching teachers after school, and got my first class at Steve Nash in February of 2012! If you had asked me before taking Zumba if I would ever teach it, I would have said "HECK NO!" I have zero dance background and despised group fitness classes because I felt like I was always 3 steps behind!
So yes - DREAM BIG - because I would have never imagined where this simple start would have taken me!
Over the years, I have been blessed to teach for Nadi when she had her first baby, sub for many friends whom I adore, teach fundraisers all over the lower mainland and share my love for Zumba with Clarissa in schools where we are known as "Queen T" and DJ "C"!!! I absolutely LOVE that I found this outlet for me to free and that I get to share it with so many others!
In just under 2 weeks, we will be hosting another EPIC Zumba Party and we cannot wait to dance with you all! This 2nd Annual party started because Nadi and I started a new path last spring and we are BEYOND excited to share this party and another year of Zumba love with you all!
