4.5 years ago I was taking Zumba classes at various locations and hadn’t found an instructor that I clicked with. I had given up the fact that I would find someone with all the qualities I had hoped for in an instructor, but loved the music and dancing and decided to just make each of the classes my own. Doing the dances full out, enjoying myself, for myself and no one else. It was a blast!
One particular night after a class a woman followed me out to the parking lot and stopped me. She asked me where I taught Zumba? I told her I didn’t and she was shocked. She told me I should, because I inspired her the entire class and if I was an instructor she would come to my class.
I went home and told this funny story to my husband who immediately told me to do it! Do what? Get licensed to teach Zumba of course! And I thought why not?? So sure enough I researched how to make it happen, found the closest training to me and got my license! I started teaching within a month and haven’t looked back since!
I wish I knew who that woman was who told me I inspired her because the truth is, she inspired me! She inspired me to go for something I never thought I could do. Because she spoke up and shared her thoughts with me, my life changed! For that, I am forever grateful! And you should thank her too because now you get to booty shake with me! 😉
