Hi, I'm Patti Petersen. I have been involved in the arts throughout my life and have studied various forms of dance. I have taught children's beginning ballet, tap, creative movement, gymnastics and fitness. A Ballroom dance instructor since 2005, I was excited to add licensed Zumba instructor to my repertoire in 2009 and Zumba Kids (formerly Zumbatomic) instructor in 2010. With a Masters in Education, I continue to implement strategies learned to improve your classes. I continue to train in bachata and Argentine tango - look for some cool new steps in my Zumba class!
But you don't have to know how to dance to take my class! Just move your body and follow my lead. It's easy! I am committed to helping others enjoy a healthy lifestyle and bring the joy of dance into your life. I want to take the "work" out of "workout". If you find something you like, it's not exercise - it's fun! I hope you will join me for the party! Check out my class schedule to find a location you like. Or click "Contact Instructor" to send me an e-mail and I'll get in touch with you about finding a class. Come try it, I guarantee you will have a blast! I look forward to meeting you!
