A Chat with Zumba with Melody
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My number-one goal as an instructor is to be easy to follow. In my classes, you have the freedom to lose yourself in the joy of the music and in the total-body conditioning I sneak into every song. You'll sweat, you'll burn, you'll laugh, and you'll love it!
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
I believe that music is the most powerful tool in any workout regimen. I am constantly discovering new and unique music from all over the world to bring to my classes, from Indian rhythms to Caribbean, K-pop to hip-hop, dubstep to swing.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I moved to Vancouver last summer for a new day job and, in doing so, moved away from the thriving Zumba community I'd been a part of for five years prior. Recently I came to the conclusion that it doesn't matter where I am; I just want to spread the joy of dance and fitness. I hope you'll join me.
What do you love most about your job?
I love when people learn that their bodies can move in unexpected ways! As we grow older we forget how good it feels to shake and twist and shimmy without fear. It's a revelation when we rediscover ourselves.
