LaToya Patrice started attending Zumba with a few girlfriends a couple of years ago. Immediately falling in love with the music and the ability to “dance” with others, she knew she was on to something. Seeing how everyone had fun while they burned calories and sweated, she decided Zumba was the answer to staying in shape. After the birth of her first child, she decided to become an instructor to share her love for Zumba, connect with others, and stay fit. She works hard on keeping her classes positive and beginner-friendly. Her goal is for you to leave her class feeling good about yourself and with a smile on your face.
When she's not moving to the Zumba dance moves, she is spending time with her husband and sweet son.
