Hi! I'm Jennifer Sapienza, (Jenn), Zumba® Instructor with more than five years' experience supporting new and returning students in their journey toward personal growth and fitness on the dance floor. I'm passionate about the gifts of Zumba®, as its rhythm and movement enrich and encourage us to bring our best participation, individually and together.
Zumba® has truly been a gift of life for me. In 2013, I discovered Zumba® at a local athletic club, and simply couldn't get enough of it. That was only two short years after almost dying in childbirth from from a heart valve problem I didn't even know I had! Open-heart surgery in 2011 gave me a titanium valve, then after a few months, I was cleared to explore and expand exercise again with no limits.
These days, my heart is healthy, full-to-overflowing with a great joy, passion and enthusiasm for Zumba®, shared with every class, every day, since I became an instructor in 2014. I welcome participants of all levels and all capabilities. I help motivate you to enjoy yourself and your friends in the class. We work hard, but we keep coming back again and again with a smile on our faces (and maybe a slight ache in our muscles... reminding us that we're learning and growing, and sharing our commitment to fitness in a most enjoyable way!)
I look forward to seeing you and your friends in one of our classes SOON! --Jenn
