I've loved moving to music for as long as I can remember. I was a ballet child, dancing with Arlington Academy of Dance before exploring jazz, modern, hip hop, salsa, and other forms of dance as I got older, including traditional dances from the Philippines. Post pregnancy, Zumba was the perfect motivator to keep me moving. My Zumbaddiction changed my body and my life.
I've been teaching Zumba for nearly 10 years, most of them Joy of Motion Dance Center, one of DC's oldest dance studios. I'm passionate about our MOVE program, designed to make dance accessible to everyone. Through JOM I am able to serve disadvantaged youth and seniors who love to dance.
