Season 3 of Chicago Fire.  Dance SPA owner Christa South Hamranova, had the honor not only to participate in the 2 featured episodes, but choreographed Zumba® routines, coached the actors and worked with 30 local Zumba® instructors to create the energy and feeling of an authentic Zumba® class. Everyone worked really hard, encouraged each other and put 110% of themselves into every dance move!

Chicago Fire actor Joe Minoso, has a real life Zumba® success story!  According to this article in  Zlife, he started taking Zumba® in 2010 with a friend.  “Fast forward 8 months and Minoso had lost 60 lbs by attending Zumba® classes.  He then went on to become a licensed Zumba® instructor: ‘Having taught classes myself, I have an even greater sense of respect for instructors because I have experienced how hard you have to push yourself when you are up there teaching a class,’ said Minoso”.
