Nada-Al-Janaby (Nadi)

Staying active and having fun have always been important to me, so when I discovered ZUMBA® I knew that this was the answer to my search for perfect balance in my life. I love to dance! And now with ZUMBA® I keep fit doing what I love. 

 Bianca Carli

Fitness, fun, creativity and variety have always been top priorities in my life. I spent most of my childhood as a competitive gymnast but desired to be a singer and dancer. As an adult, I acquired certificates in Physiology, Weight Training, Group Fitness, Yamuna Body Rolling and Nutrition Counseling. 

 Magdalena Lima (Maggie)

As a native of Mexico growing up, I was surrounded by dance and music. Dances such as cumbia, merengue, salsa, mambo, chachacha, and banda were part of my everyday life. I am exited to show you an easy to follow workout designed to dance your way into a better and healthier life style!

 Kate Douglass

I took my first dance class at 11 years old and have never looked back. I studied jazz, ballet, contemporary, musical theatre, tap, salsa, and have dabbled in bollywood and hip hop.  I fell in love with ZUMBA® after taking a workshop with Janet and Nadi, and decided I'd like to branch out in my career and teach something that makes people feel so good. 

Tanya Maglio

I took my first ZUMBA® class in Mexico while visiting my sister in the Yucatán. I had such a blast and thought to myself "I could teach this back home". What is better than an hour of great cardio, incredible music, confidence boosting and liberating moves? Come and join me – I promise this dynamic total body workout will keep you coming back for more!

 Luglio Romero

As a native of Costa Rica, Merengue and Salsa have been part of my movement vocabulary since I was 5 years old. I studied dance at Simon Fraser University and went on to perform for Ballet Clàsico de Costa Rica, Ballet Victoria, Off-Dance Co and Canadian Pacific Ballet. My passion for dancing and performing combined with my ability to teach movement have made me a popular ZUMBA® Instructor.

 Kathy-Ann Nobbs-Thiessen

I have always had an interest in fitness, particularly dancing. I fondly remember twirling to music in my parents' basement as a little girl. In 2009, I tried my first Zumba® class and was instantly hooked. For the first time ever, I craved exercise. I soon found myself taking the training to become a Zumba® instructor, and now teach Zumba all over Vancouver.

Laura Gordon

Dance and fitness are some of my greatest passions, so when I discovered Zumba naturally I fell in love! I am a classically trained dancer, certified Nutritionist and passionate instructor. Get ready for groovy choreo, booty shaking moves and a high energy workout!

Katherine Chambers

I took my first Zumba class in search of a new and exciting way to keep in shape -- the gym just wasn't cutting it! I have a history as a dancer and I missed the freedom of just letting loose, so decided to give it a shot! After the first class I was hooked and thought, "Hey, I could teach this!". With some encouragement from one of my instructors I decided to take the first step.
