Jennifer was hooked, and became a licensed instructor for both?Zumba?and?Zumbatomic, designed for kids ages 4?12.
Today, the Texas City native teaches group?Zumba classes four days a week at two locations. She even offers private workouts with a party atmosphere, perfect for ladies' nights, kids' birthdays, and family reunions that get awkward if people talk for too long.
