Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

We talked about the work I do (and she has done too!) which made the conversation and learning very meaningful. She also gave me an article related to my work and asked me to come to the next meeting with a little information to share. So, I was able to practice conversation in my specific field of work. I really enjoyed my first session and I'm looking forward to our next.

In Zumba in the Circuit, participants alternate between circuit weight-training machines and classic Zumba dance-fitness moves. At a specified sound cue, participants leave one machine or dance move and go to the next. Typical machines exercises include leg extensions, bicep curls, chest presses, and more. The weight machines build strength, targeting all the muscle groups of the body, while the Zumba steps add cardio into the mix. Add to this your favorite Zumba music beats (ranging from salsa to samba to reggaeton to meringue to African to jazz to hip-hop, belly dance and more). Is full body workout
