I had just said goodbye to a happy chapter in my life volunteering as a dance workshop leader working with at risk youth. At a crossroad in my career change journey, I saw my life transforming and thought ‘what comes next’?
“The door is more than it appears. It separates who you are from who you can be. You do not have to walk through it… You can run.”
Franklin Richards, The Fantastic Four
In 2016, I combined my passion for dance and movement with my developing talent for helping others, got certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Group Fitness Instructor, and licensed by Zumba to teach dance fitness. Since then, Talitha Dance has become home for people like me, everyday heroes rolling along their journey, taking care of business, and trying to squeeze fitness in between living life and being happy. In 2018, after getting licensed to teach Barre and Strong by Zumba, I left my day job and took the plunge into teaching fitness classes full time.
