Thank you to everyone who joined the party and fight against liver cancer at the first ZUMBATHON AT STANFORD!!! What a HUGE success!  I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm, excitement and number of people who rocked the house.  Seriously, I am on the biggest Zumba high right now!

Keeping a beat for earthquake victims – News!

Keeping a beat for earthquake victims

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share the news article about our awesome Zumba for Charity event this past Sunday!

“I’ve always know that I wanted to make a difference in the world,” said Villanueva. “It’s an emotional high being able to make a meaningful impact in people’s lives.”

And happy Friday to all!  I am thrilled that it is almost the start of a 3-day weekend.  I could really use some down time to just relax and cook and clean my room…whoa, sounding a bit domestic there…and go out with friends and maybe the movies, academy of sciences, and other delights of San Francisco.

You guys were HOT last night!  Those smiles make me so happy!  Here was our playlist:

testing from the train…

Let’s see if my post from the caltrain will actually work…

Well, it looks like it works! Exciting! So now I can tell you about my night. After work I went with my coworker to her church’s little 14 year old girls Wednesday night club. It was these girls first time Zumbaing, but they had a blast! What fun! There was A LOT of screaming, shouting, giggling and noise. and you know I love that in my Zumba classes!

Also, I just want to send positive thoughts and support to the people of Haiti affected by the earthquake. There are Zumba people working on various benefit effects to raise relief funds for Haiti. I will keep you all updated.

xoxo
