Denise Galay

Owner of ZV Crew - I am known for my high-energy fitness classes which leave you feeling revitalized and ready for anything. I combine more than 15 years experience teaching and performing African, Brazilian, and Caribbean dance, with a passion for music to create a dynamic, unforgettable fitness experience. 

 Janet McLeish

I am an innovative, Canadian born ZUMBA® instructor who has been teaching dance for over 8 years throughout Canada. My eclectic style incorporates African, Latin, Modern, Jazz, Middle Eastern, Hip Hop Funk, Ballet, Contemporary, Disco, Calypso into a perfect blended and exciting aerobic workout.

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. 

 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. 

 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
