About Me

        I'm Zuzu and I really love teaching Zumba classes. Not only because every class feels like a party, but there is always a huge amount of positive energy that flows from everyone :)  Come, join me and you'll see what I mean. Just move your body, try to follow my lead and I guarantee you will have a blast! 

          When I attended my first Zumba class in Slovakia in 2007, I immediately knew this was exactly the type of the fitness I was looking for. Although, I was mostly going in the wrong direction or couldn't combine step and arms variations, I was smiling through the whole class. Dancing, toning and having so much fun, all at once, without realizing being in the middle of workout. (Well, except for all that good sweat, lol :)

        One year later, I became one of the first six Slovak instructors. I'm very grateful to be a part of the Zumba family. By continuing my education I am trying to not only improve my skills and dance style, but to bring fresh flavors to my classes.  Anyway,  the most important for me is the smile on the faces of my class participants. :) Dance and workout to be happy!
