Get to know Erinn
YEARS DOING ZUMBA / TEACHING ZUMBA:
I have been doing Zumba since 2010 starting out as a participant with Emma Kearines. I met Tracy in 2013 when she and Emma organised a fundraiser for my nephew who had leukaemia, after that I started attending Step classes and that’s where my true passion began and I started teaching Zumba as a part of Tracy’s team June, 2014.
BACKGROUND (Dance, Fitness, neither etc) :
My background is Dance (Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Tap). I grew up knowing that I always wanted to do something to do with dance, I actually wanted to be a professional choreographer for as long as I can remember and although I have no background in fitness, it is a large passion of mine.
FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT TEACHING ZUMBA / AAD:
Seeing the joy on people’s faces while they are participating in a class, seeing people get in and have a go, being able to pass on our passion about Zumba to others and to show them that fitness isn’t boring and you can have a lot of fun whilst getting fit.
FAVOURITE SONG TO TEACH AT THE MOMENT/ EVER :
The first song I ever taught by myself would have to be one of my favourites to teach, It’s Called Menea la Pera by BIP. It’s a fast high passed, high intensity song which I love. In saying that, any ‘New’ song is always a favourite.
PROUDEST ZUMBA / AAD MOMENT:
Every day I get to Dance with our clients is a proud moment for me, Being a part of a team that is so community focused and getting the best out of our clients brings me so much joy. It is something that we can all be so proud of.
My future goals include continuing to inspire people and to finish my Teaching Degree. I would love to become a personal trainer one day to really help our clients and provide them with the most valuable information possible. I think my ultimate goal is to always do something that makes me inspired and happy. It is also a goal of mine to help Tracy to take AAD to the next level and help her to grow AAD to be everything it can be.
