ZUMBA

Zumba is an energizing dance-fitness workout class incorporating Latin and various styles and genres of music. Often called exercise in disguise as it’s lots of fun!

This class is being taught my local Stonebridge resident, Angela Achtemichukwho has been instructing Zumba for the past 5 years and dance classes for the past 10. Her classes incorporate various Latin dance styles such as Salsa, Cumbia, Reggaeton as well as Jazz and Hip Hop!  She uses Latin and World music and incorporates other genres such as Pop, and songs from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s (her fave genre is 90’s R&B!).  She loves the feeling of freedom that comes from movement and hopes students will feel that too and the joy that comes from dance and expressing yourself.

Angela loves taking and teaching group classes not only for the workout but the sense of community (not to mention the laughs!)  Her classes are for all levels of experience.  She has lived in Stonebridge with her husband and son for almost 11 years and is excited to teach in this wonderful community for the first time!
