Hello! I'm Lisa Francia, and I live in Fairfax, VA.
We've got you covered during the COVID-19 crisis. Keep moving in the space you have!
Someone from our class wrote: "There is no other group online that feels like family than this one. This is my first time taking the class during the COVID19 pandemic and I haven’t felt so close to a community than this one. I am so, so, happy after this class. All of the members of this group radiate positivity and welcome everyone no matter how advanced you are in Zumba. I’ve felt very unmotivated to exercise since the pandemic started and I can’t pin point what magical energy was transferred during the ZOOM class but I suddenly felt seen and valued with my participation. Everyone provides such color and texture to the overall experience!! Thank you so much."
Preparing Zumba choreography has really helped me get through these trying times. I find it therapeutic since it is like trying to put together a puzzle, but you have to create your own pieces to fit into the pattern of the music.
I am the founder of Dancing is My Voice
