    I have been taking Zoe's Saturday class for a few weeks now, and I am enjoying it immensely. It really is the perfect way to start off the weekend. I am certainly not a dancer, but Zoe is actually teaching me to move more like one. I really appreciate that the class works for various levels, and that it can be as challenging as I want to make it. I am getting a workout at the same time I am learning new stuff and having fun with folks I like.

    Zoe's fitness class is fun and energizing. The hour flies by. I find myself humming the tunes during the week and can't wait to come back each Saturday. For someone with very little extra time, it's an excellent way to kick-off my Saturdays. Each week weaves into the next with some new steps and some review. The environment is comfortable and welcoming.

    I have had multiple back surgeries and both hips replaced. The last surgery was about 6 weeks ago. I am attending Zoe’s dance fitness class and am feeling stronger every week. If you love to dance you will love dancing with Zoe’s group. I can’t always keep up but that doesn’t matter – I can move and that is what counts.
