Meet your Instructor...
Ionie Shaw (24)
Zumba Fitness Instructor.
Hello my lovelies, I'm Ionie, currently living in Reading, Fundraiser for Guide Dogs by Day...Zumba Instructor and Choreographer by night. I've been a Licensed Zumba instructor since Aug 2019 and started teaching in January 2020. I absolutely love teaching my Zumba classes the reason why is simple: Every class feels like a party!
Coming from graduating from a Musical Theatre Degree in August 2019 and falling in love with dance at the young age of three I know just how much fun these classes will be!
Personally, I see the incredible benefits one can achieve by dancing, from increased self confidence and mental health to weight loss and increasing your social circle.
I am so excited to get back into teaching my classes in person and can't wait to see you all face to face.
Providing free classes for all.
Like many people during the first few days of the lock down I felt helpless and wanted to offer my service in any way I could. That's when I completely turned by business into a not for profit and made all my classes virtual. Throughout the first lockdown I ran 3 free live-stream Zumba classes a week as well as 2 pre-recorded sessions. I have had students join from all around the world such as Canada, Austria and Italy as well as keeping in touch with my old students. These sessions have provided a little escape for all those involved.
