Hello! I'm Amber Gauthier and I live in Lyon Township, MI. I've been taking Zumba classes for over 10 years and have been a licensed Zumba instructor since September 2013. I also took Belly dance fusion and adult hip hop classes for five years, and I enjoy bringing some of those flavors to my classes.
I love leading Zumba classes because it allows me to share my passion for dance and fitness, while also making working out for class participants feel more like a party than a chore! I like to be a little silly in my classes because I also enjoy making my participants smile and laugh - I believe it burns even more calories! Usually I accomplish this by making funny faces and gestures during some of my songs.
I’m currently teaching Wednesday nights at the Farmington Family YMCA in Michigan. I’m also subbing in various locations when a fellow instructor needs someone to cover their class.
I am currently licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba Gold®, Zumba Kids, Zumba® Step, and Strong (by Zumba). I am also a NETA certified Group Fitness Instructor.
Come join me for a ZUMBA class soon! It’s the most fun you can have while still burning lots of calories! Any questions, please don't hesitate to drop me a message.
