Meet Sam!


Instructor Since:



Plymouth, Devon UK

About Her Class:

Fun, easy to follow and everyone is welcome.  I want to make sure everyone leaves the class feeling happy and confident within themselves.

Why She Started Teaching Zumba®:

I love the music and the feeling you get from dancing.  I am a qualified dance teacher so I am passionate about music and movement, but Zumba enables all types of ages, body types and fitness levels to participate in a class.

What Makes Zumba® Special For Her:

It has allowed me to try different types of choreography and through this I have met some amazing, warm people.

How Long Does It Take Her To Learn Choreography?

Wow, this can vary from 30 minutes (subject to how much coffee I have had) to a couple of hours if the whole family is home.  I love showing new choreography in my class because once someone gets it, the smile on their faces really make my day.

What Would Surprise Her Participants The Most?

I used to work at a bank as a Financial Service Representative.

What Is She Most Proud Of?

The fact that I took a leap to pursue this career and that my family has supported me all the way.

What Is Something That Amazes Her?

People amaze me, on how we find the strength to carry on, even when life throws you a curve ball.

What Is Something She Needs Everyday?

I need to have my morning coffee.

What Does She Like To Eat And/Or Drink At A Party?

A cheese board & Prosecco.

What Is Her Favorite Thing To Do That Is Not Zumba®?

That would be spending time with my husband, my daughter and new puppy Bella, may it be walking, swimming or even paddle boarding.
