"I have had several Zumba teachers over the last few years. Joanie is by far the best. She is a very kind and motivating instructor." ~Cathy Muzzin (First Lady of Brighton!! Her hubby is our Mayor:)
The camaraderie and support help EVERYBODY meet their goals!!
Went to the doctor for a regular check up this morning. He couldn't get over how low my blood pressure was! As I was holding up my Zumba Punch card, I said, "Do you think it could have anything to do with working out with Zumba 3 times a week?" The answer was YES!!!!! ♥ ~Susan K.
Definitely no experience necessary ….just come have fun and do what you can ~Theresa M
I loved the
class, too, especially how Joanie makes me feel comfortable even though I
am a step behind and going the wrong way! Thanks Joanie! ~Claudia
I had so much
fun! I am still sore in some places the next day. No one can shake the
booty like you J! ~Cat
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your class! You have made me love working out again!~Adrienne E.
"After being a caregiver for about 2 years and never going out or doing much of anything; I decided that for my health I needed to get moving and do some kind of exercise. In my past I was never able to stick with any kind of exercise for any length of time. I started to hear about this thing called Zumba. I wanted to know what it was all about so I searched out a class. Turns out it is this wonderful way to get exercise that doesn't seem like work. It is a fun class where you can dance. I tried out a few classes, some were pretty good and others I didn't care for. When I found Joanie's class I knew I had found my Zumba home. At first I didn't think I could keep up, but that doesn't matter as long as you are having fun. Joanie has a way of making you feel comfortable no matter what level you are at. In fact everyone in her class is welcoming and accepting. I started out one time a week, then two times, now I go 3 or 4 times a week. Its just too much fun to miss. I have gone from a size 24 (which was starting to get too tight one me) to a size 20. I still have a long way to go but I know that sticking with Zumba and the wonderful support from Joanie and the B-Town Booty Shakers that I will continue on my road to becoming a healthier person. My doctors are very happy with my progress too. My Triglycerides have been cut in half, and my cholesterol is getting so much better that my doctor has stopped trying to put me on cholesterol meds. Oh, did I mention that I have lost 50 pounds. That is a bonus! The most important part is the healthier lifestyle. Thanks Joanie for your fun classes, your great energy, and your support and encouragement. Love you. ~Paula
I admit that I was extremely anxious before the first class because I had never Zumba-ed before and I didn’t want to stick out – I almost didn’t go. I have to congratulate you on creating an environment that doesn’t make me feel self-conscious or awkward (oh and for the great work out!). Thank you!~Liz
These are the best classes ever. My mom and I would go together, it is perfect for all ages! I moved out for town and this is what I miss most from home! The classes were not only a great workout but so fun you don't feel like your working out. And I mean, these are the best ladies in town, you couldn't find better friends! ~Allison
"Thank you Joanie, my cholesterol levels have dropped to the perfect levels, finally! I was able to bring my numbers down by 54 points! This was accomplished thru Zumba 2 -3 times a week for six months. Didn't really diet, other than watched what I ate Monday – Friday and I laid off the cheese and butter. I truly want people to know that not only can you lose weight, get great muscle toning, but you can ALSO lower your cholesterol. So many reasons to try the class. Everyone is friendly and supportive. We all just have a great time dancing with Joanie and before you know the hour has passed. Thank you so much Joanie. You make a difference to everyone one you meet. Always carry that with you. Much love Janet M."
You inspire people like me to "dance as if no one is watching" and I thank you for that! This is the best workout around for any age group, and it’s fun too!~Lorraine E.
Hi Joanie,I’ve been doing you class for a while now and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy it. It is such a great workout and so much fun. You and all or your fly girls are really nice and make everyone feel welcome.
Just wanted to let you know that it’s been a very positive thing in my life and I wish I could go every day. Thanks very much!
Joanie is the BOMB ~Kelly
I love to Zumba ! even though I still get my feet all mixed up! ~Debbie P.
I had a great time! I was one of the newbies, a step behind and going in the wrong direction. Having the lights dimmed really took the pressure off being uncoordinated. I wish I could take your class 3 times a week, but logistically it will be impossible. Thanks for the words of encouragement. It means a lot that you care. You are an awesome instructor and your insight into just having fun is contagious. I am looking forward to my next class. Thanks again Joanie. ~Michele S.
I bought a year membership to Jazzercise, but I LOVE your class so much I don’t use it, I just come to ZUMBA! I had and awful day at work, and by the end of class I felt so much better. THANK YOU! ~L. E. <--She wanted her idenity protected because she was worried her Jazzercise instructor would be upset with her.
We want to come to more of your classes. You’re the best Zumba-er we know! ~Lisa A.
It was so much fun for me to actually feel free enough to be seen and go to a class, you gave that confidence to me. I would love to stay in your loop because I will follow your enthusiasm and ZUMBA-LICIOUSNESS. May God continue to guide you on this journey. ~Susan
I am so hooked on Zumba with Joanie! ~Val
Funny i just told my boss the same thing..:) ~Stacey R.
I told my boss back in Nov that on Tues & Thurs I’m outta there!!!!! ~Tresa O.
The mom taxi does not run at our house during zumba. The dad taxi has to pick up the slack. It’s time to take care of ME! ~Denise K.
Michelle: ....I can tell you that our instructor, Joanie, is fabulous and by the end of the class EVERYONE feels like a dancer! It’s fun!
Thank you for another fabulous class. I am so excited about taking your classes. You make them fun and I don’t realize I am exercising! I feel great after your class, both mentally and physically. Keep up the great work and your contagious enthusiasm. I look forward to every class. ~Michele S.

Joanie! You are awesome!! I am so in awe of you. That class you did on Friday night was super-you have such a way of making people feel good You really have a knack for teaching. You are quite good at the whole Zumba thing. The music was great and I can’t believe how much of a workout it really was, lots of dif body parts were engaged at the same time. That was the most fun I’d had in a while, so thank you so very much. ~Dr.T.Joseph
· Susan~Joanie’s class is awesome! She is the best, sweet, cute and funny. I just love her class.
· Susan Kennedy~I just started Zumba this past April 2012. This is the first time that I have signed up for a “fitness” class & stuck with it. The reasons are many, I am having a blast while burning calories & I have met a great group of people that have become my friends. I didn’t think I would be able to do this but when I came to class & saw all the different age groups, fitness levels & met the instructor I knew it was for me. By far Joanie is the best. Come see for yourself! We know how to booty shake in Brighton!!
It is the best ME time and best work out I have EVER experienced! Thanks Joanie!·
The class is so much fun you don’t even realize how hard you are working out! Fabulous! Joanie’s the BEST!
Joanie is so welcoming and fun! Our class size keeps growing in numbers and shrinking in inches as we dance our Booty’s off! Joanie is the best!
· Carol~Joanie’s Zumba class is the best fun ever. Not only can you shake your booty off but it’s great for laughs. I feel fortunate to have found this class and have been a dedicated participant. ·
· Candace~Zumba with Joanie is the best! It’s so different than any of the other classes being offered, you won’t be disappointed!
