Additional info: My love for dance grew even more when I found Zumba. I was 141 pounds before Zumba andwas struggling to lose weight. I was able to drop to 115 pounds within 4 months and was still able to enjoy all of my favorite Indian dishes. I love the feeling when students come back to
class and mention how much weight they’ve lost and how Zumba has changed their lives. That
feeling for me is just priceless.
