I have been attending Marinelle Brewster’s Zumba classes regularly since October, 2013. At 66 years old, I feel my agility and balance have improved tremendously due to my participation in class. Marinelle’s sunny disposition and energetic personality make exercise fun. She pushes us to be the best we can be without pressure to go beyond our physical limitations. We learn new routines frequently, challenging not just our bodies, but our minds as well. Even if I have had an exhausting day and lack the energy to dance when I arrive at Zumba, by the middle of the class I feel rejuvenated. Marinelle creates an atmosphere that is relaxed and not at all intimidating. My life is greatly enriched by the hours spent dancing with Marinelle and I recommend her class to anyone who wants to improve their physical and mental health.
