Having worked in adult Adapted Physical Education at a community college for twenty-eight years and having loved to dance for as long as I can remember, when I discovered Zumba Gold, I knew I'd found the perfect way to combine these two passions. What could be more perfect than having opportunities to bring fitness and dance together in a Zumba dance party atmosphere, providing an effective, yet fun workout that doesn't feel like exercise? Zumba Gold combines exciting Latin--along with other international rhythms and easy-to-learn dance steps--together with fitness for those of us who want a dynamic, yet low-to-no impact fitness program as a regular element of our lifestyle, appropriate for active baby boomers and seniors and/or anyone beginning their journey toward fitness. All levels of fitness are welcome, and no dance experience is needed. I am delighted to share the joy and excitement of Zumba fitness with others, who want to reap the benefits of a cardiovascular and conditioning dance-ightfitness class. If you have any questions, please click "Contact Instructor," and I'll promptly reply to your email. I am a certified group fitness instructor with the American Senior Fitness Association, bringing years of fitness and dance experience to my classes. I'm currently teaching Zumba Gold classes at College of Marin (both the Kentfield and Indian Valley campuses), through Community Education and at the Petaluma Senior (Novak) Center. I look forward to dancing with you!
