Frankie has been formally dancing since the young age of five. In his teen and early adult years, he got into the breakdancing craze and at the same time was lucky to be exposed to many different forms of dance such as Jazz, Salsa, Merengue and Argentine Tango. To this day, you can be sure that if there is a beat in the air Frankie is dancing to it.
While on a treadmill at a local gym, Frankie glanced into the group exercise room and saw what looked like to Salsa dance. That’s how he found Zumba and from that moment he was hooked! He promptly took the next step to become certified and began teaching Zumba. It has been the most rewarding time in his life as he is able to share his passion for music and dance with his students.
Through Zumba you can make new friends, relieve stress from a hard day’s work and meet your fitness goals. Whatever your reason for taking a Zumba class, you will find it is more than just music and dance- it is therapy for the mind, body and soul! See you in class!
Kisha is a Chicago girl who has lived in the Phoenix area since 1997. She has always loved music and dancing and considers both a way to relax, have fun, and relieve stress. Then she discovered Zumba. Ditching the workout and joining the party quickly replaced boring workouts on the treadmill and elliptical and incorporated all the things she likes about aerobics and kick-boxing!
Once she realized Zumba was an addiction, she got licensed to teach so she could help throw the party – it’s the perfect outlet for her excess energy.
Because she was in the military, she likes to incorporate a lot of fitness moves in her choreography, so don’t be surprised if you start to feel like you have abs or buns of steel.
It doesn’t matter if you “can’t dance”; it’s just about moving and enjoying the music. Zumba really is exercise in disguise.
Hope to see you in class!
In my teens I was overweight, and in my 20′s I topped the scale at 206 lbs. When I discovered that I was borderline diabetic, I devoted an entire year to exercise and eating better and was rewarded by shedding off 84 lbs. I have been in “fat remission” for over 10 years and I attribute maintaining my healthy weight to a lifestyle that involves cardio work, weight training, and dance. Join my Zumba party every Saturday morning and let me help you achieve your own health goals.
Margarita, had been overweight for more than ten years. After each pregnancy (she has two daughters), she put on extra weight that she could not seem to take off. By 2004, Margarita weighed in at 200 pounds, only to gain 20 more over the next two years. She was down, but not out. Margarita was determined to make a change in her life.
“I started to walk, since that was the only thing I could do” she says. “I cut out all junk and fast food, such as pizza, hamburgers, fries, chips, sodas and cookies”.
Before long, Margarita was feeling strong enough to join a dance fitness class at a local sports club. At first she was embarrassed, afraid people would snicker behind her back. She imagined they were calling her a “dancing bear”.
The class became a Zumba class, and at the time nobody knew what that was. But as soon as Margarita, who was born in Mexico, discovered that is was a Latin rhythm class, she never missed a session. After becoming a healthier eater and working out six to seven days a week, she lost 75 pounds. It was a rebirth for her. “The fact that I can move again – and dance – makes me cry. Zumba gave me back my life”.
In January 2008 Margarita became a Zumba Instructor, and started teaching in Memphis, TN. In 2010 she moved to Shanghai, China, where very few people had heard about Zumba and she opened several small classes that grew very large in size while she was there. Some of her students even became instructors, and by the time Margarita moved back to Phoenix, AZ in July 2013, they took over and continued the party! Now Margarita is a part of Dance FX Studios. She is very happy and excited to share her Zumba passion with us all and we feel lucky to have her here.
