"I have enjoyed Barbara‘s Zumba class for the last several years and she is fantastic!  She always brings a positive energy with her which makes the class incredibly enjoyable.  Her dances are lively and original. I always feel I have had a great workout and try never to miss a class. I just LOVE her!"

"I have been dancing with Barbara for 5 years and still counting. Not only is she my dance teacher but has become a part of my family. Her knowledge of dance has surpassed what I expected and I always leave class wanting more. Barbara’s high energy level is contagious. So get ready to sweat!!"
