About Denise

Music has always been a major part of my life and I loved to sing and dance for anyone that would watch, so I instantly loved Zumba when I first tried it. Zumba literally saved my life by helping my body cope with debilitating effects of Lupus. I was diagnosed with Lupus (an autoimmune disease) after the birth of my second child. I suffered daily with arthritis and severe fatigue.

After making Zumba a part of my regular exercise routine, my symptoms greatly improved and it’s been a game-changer for my life! I’ve been a certified instructor since 2014, so join me for an energizing hour of shakin’ it to Latin, pop, hip-hop, R&B, indie and even Broadway tunes!
