"Zumba with Kristen is totally delicious!" 

I've been teaching Zumba since November, 2011.

"It's a dance workout that is great exercise but also mellow in a classically Kristen way. It's inspired by great music and clearly modeled dance moves that get your body moving effortlessly (almost) over an hour that slips right by." 

I have been a dancer all my life, Before ZUMBA came into my life, I was mad about swing, waltz, and polka, with a secret love for theatrical vamping and anything with a shimmy or a cha cha cha. I loved Hiphop and African dance but was shy about signing up. Who knew I would grow into my secret identity as KRS-10? I love giving my students permission to shake their everything and play with different physical expressions.

"And you never know what Kristen is going to wear, which is half the fun." —Nancy B

My classes are energizing, friendly, casual, and often a little goofy. I just love ZUMBA's mission to "fill the world's empty rooms" with people dancing. Exercise has healing powers. Dance is transformative. FITNESS IS FUN. And everyone needs a steady diet of joy and happiness!
I'm a collaborative person who enjoys building community. And ZUMBA is a great excuse to get together for positive change. When I'm not dancing, I'm writing books and musicals.

See you on the dance floor!

Sure, Zumba is a party, but how effective a workout is it, really?
