Our Professional Workshops:


Leah Bugante


Leah Is a fitness instructor who has been teaching for over a 15 years. She teaches Zumbatomic , Aqua Zumba, Gold Zumba, and Salsa for any age group. Zumbatomic is a Zumba routine designed exclusively for kids ages 4 to 12 that works differently than the sessions designed for adults. Leah believes that Zumbatomic is one of the best exercise routines you can choose to keep your kids physically active while also working on their social skills, building confidence, and boosting functional skills while in a safe environment. “In my class you feel like you’re a star. Because everyone brings their own flavor and styles in dancing.”

Workshop Description

Campers will have a chance to “be a star” as Leah teaches them and leads them through the Zumbatomic routines. It will be a great experience of dance and exercise while enjoying music and fun energy in the room.
