An Art Director/Designer – but #zumbaishersidehustle!
Eve likes to pack a whole lot of energy (and hair flippin’ fun) into class. She uses progressive cueing & loves to take it up a notch.
No matter what state you are in when you show up – bad day, stress, anxiety, excited, complacent — you’ll leave with the kind of happy you can only get after releasing it from within. Eve lives for those moments of transformational bliss every class brings. The music starts, the adrenaline kicks in, the endorphins go crazy, and the laughter is unstoppable. Zumba is something she can always count on to get her through whatever life throws her way!
Eve’s experience as a Zumba student spans 10 years. Her formative years include a LOT of ballet classes and countless musicals. She never thought she would find an outlet to dance again as an adult, and wowza – how glad she is that she was wrong. Eve walked into her first Zumba class in 2010 and couldn’t get enough, she was HOOKED!
In April 2021, Eve finally became an instructor, and she loves it! It is so much more than a workout. It’s a community. #StepintoHappy with Eve, she can’t wait to dance with you!
