Instructor: Nelly Villegas Martin

Hi, my name is Nelly Villegas Martin and I love teaching Zumba! I’ve been teaching Zumba for over 5 years and 3 years here at Higashi.  I love dancing, while at the same time, getting a great work out.  Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance fitness program that involves dance and aerobic movements.  It’s a great way to get in shape, burn some calories, and meet new and old friends.

So come on out for an hour of great cardio, fun dance moves and socializing!  Wear comfortable clothing and be ready to SWEAT!

Date/Time: Every Tuesday, 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm, Every Friday, 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
