Jamie Flanagan fell in love with Zumba® in the spring of 2012. After loosing over 30lbs, she decided teaching was the next step. She's been paying it forward ever since. Her class is now called DanceFit. It is similar to Zumba, with less latin music and more hip hop/pop music. No doubt you will leave with a smile on your face!

Sheyza had been a professional dancer for 11 years and moved to Oregon in 2012 and taught Tribal Fusion Bellydance in SPRD in Sisters, Oregon for about months for seasonal classes.
Sheyza will be teaching Tribal "Fusion" Bellydance which she highlights more of bringing all the cultures in this dance form, involving different styles and techniques. It will introduce basic steps up to advance as the students progress. The techniques will teach breaking habits in the muscles to learn certain movements we are not used to. Fun stretches and warm ups along with learning how to improv and build into combos.

Rita Thomasberg Born and raised in New Zealand. Traveled to the USA on vacation in 1986 with all my worldly goods on my bicycle. Met the right guy and have been here ever since. I was licensed for Zumba in 2013 and have since obtained my licenses for Zumba Kids, Zumba Toning and Zumba Gold.
I would call myself a zumba addict! Everyone has a story for starting and continuing to do Zumba. Mine I would consider, my two left feet, the fact that I am tone deaf. I am challenged by both. Becoming an instructor and continuing to teach Zumba has helped me tremendously.
