Hi, I’m Ania and I love teaching Zumba® classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! Come join me and you’ll see what I mean. You don’t even have to know how to dance. Just move your body and follow my lead. It’s easy!

Ania Kurzawa, has been a dance enthusiast and performer since she was a young girl in Krakow, Poland. Ania has mastered many arts and techniques but has excelled in modern, salsa and ballroom dancing. Dancing has always been a passion of Ania and plays an important role in her life. Ania relocated to Chicago, IL almost a decade ago and has added to her love for dance and expression through Zumba!  Ania has been a Zumba devotee for 2 years and recently became an instructor.  Ania’s style is an exciting combination of choreography and music that will definitely get your workout on!






Hi, I have been a dancer my entire life, when I stumbled upon a Zumba class over three years ago it was just another reminder of how much I love to dance. I was hooked instantly. I love the fun, funky, and latin rhythms- a great change from the ballet class!  I loved Zumba so much, I decided to become an instructor. Since then I have taught in San Francisco, teaching 8-10 classes per week before moving to Chicago, where the party hasn’t stopped.

Zumba can be fun for anyone- regardless of your age or fitness level. You don’t have to know how to dance.  No judging! Try a class today and get ready for a healthier, happier, and leaner you. Come shake your bootie!  http://nicoletteo.zumba.com/





Hi! My name is Maggie Norton. Although I was a swimmer the majority of my life, I have always loved to dance. When I started taking Zumba classes, I became obsessed immediately! Not only is Zumba a great workout, it’s a ton of fun, too! Don’t worry if you’ve never taken dance lessons/class before; come have fun, jump around, and enjoy the Zumba party!





Hi! My name is Aviva and I love Zumba because it keeps me smiling and dancing! As a person who has danced most of her life, Zumba keeps me connected to the music and exercise I depend on to feel happy and healthy. After several years taking fun, sweaty classes at Dance Spa, I became a licensed Zumba instructor. Now I take and teach classes and share the joy of this totally accessible form of movement and exercise.  I look forward to seeing you in class!



Dance has always been part of my life from Bharatnatyam (Indian classical dance) and tap lessons when I was a kid to Color Guard in high school. I found Zumba over 9 years ago while working in DC and looking for a fun workout. I loved it so much that I became an instructor in 2015, and I am excited to continue the party here in Chicago!
