Kathy-Ann Nobbs-Thiessen

I have always had an interest in fitness, particularly dancing. I fondly remember twirling to music in my parents' basement as a little girl. In 2009, I tried my first Zumba® class and was instantly hooked. For the first time ever, I craved exercise. I soon found myself taking the training to become a Zumba® instructor, and now teach Zumba all over Vancouver.

Tamara Aven

I believe that by being open, silly, creative, and energetic, my participants and I create an environment where we are all free to be ourselves, without the everyday responsibilities of life weighing us down. As a result of feeling free, we are able to then step out of our comfort zones and challenge ourselves to try something new, to explore our creative side, and to see what our bodies are able to do.

Originally from France, I was raised by a mom passionate about dancing and a father who would take me with him on his runs. Music and fitness have always been a part of my life as far as I can remember. I grew up to become a salsa dancer and instructor, musician and singer and always found time to excise, whether it was through playing sports, running, practicing yoga or simply going to the gym for fitness classes or personal training sessions.

Eric Robertson

I started dancing at age 5, training in all dance styles until I turned pro as an adult, dancing on Broadway, at the Stratford Festival, and all over the world in various dance shows and musicals.  Before moving to BC, I spent the last 10 years in NewYork City, where I discovered Zumba and saw how it brings people together, makes them smile and creates such strong communities.  I keep my classes pretty high energy, high impact, with a positive, party atmosphere!  Come join me, I guarantee you will have a blast!
