Althea "Tiah" Barnes has spent years teaching liturgical dance to both kids and adults. She has switched gears at her self-named Zumba studio, where exercisers of all fitness levels partake in the energetic, dance-inspired workout. It's clear that Barnes isn't one to sit still, which may explain why she also created her own classes called Music & Movement 4 Kids, a program inspired by Zumba but tailored to preschoolers.
