Hey, DJ!

Have a favorite Zumba® song? Want to hear it in the next class? I can sometimes accommodate requests right before class, but you are welcome to email me and request a favorite. Maybe an old song we haven't done in awhile? Or do you have a song you'd like me to choreograph? Let me know. I still need to keep some balance in the class so we represent a variety of rhythms and tempos as well as work all parts of your body, but I want to know what you like! Thanks!

Something you should know...

I work hard to keep all the songs we dance to in our Zumba® classes clean! It's true we do some moves you wouldn't do at a church dance, but you don't usually do pushups at church either.  We gotta find a way to work your entire body. You'll have a blast. And don't worry, I take care of the music selection. I try as hard as I can to find songs that have clean lyrics. You can leave feeling good inside and out! (And I no longer edit songs to clean them up. I don't want to be the one to teach you to love a song that needs editing. You'd go home and buy it and get a shock for you and your family!)

However, I don't speak Spanish, so if I mess up and you notice something uncomfortable, I invite you to let me know about it.
