Years ago, Natasha was captured by the Latin spice of Zumba. Her mother took her to her first Zumba class almost against her will when she was a kid. With years of practice, she got hooked and passionate about it. She took classes for four years before becoming an assistant instructor, spending her time polishing skills with mentors at Rio Sport & Health Club.
When she was a Junior at Winston Churchill High School, she found the Zumba Club for students and lead Zumba classes to her peers with a great success. Herpassion for Zumba leadher to certifications to teach on my own in December 2012. Since then, she taught Zumba classes at Dance Studio Booseh, and then added to instructing teachers after school at Mill Creek Towne Elementary School. Along with her afternoons at the elementary school, at present time, she is enjoying her Zumba classes at Hanna's Universal Dance Studio.
