  1. Hey Alena!

    I know you through 24hr Fitness. I don’t go regularly anymore so I feel out of touch with the Zumba community. Good news is I just got hired to teach Zumba at a fitness studio in Berkeley!

    I was wondering if you could connect me to some really kind and energetic Zumba instructors you know in the east bay, preferably in Berkeley. I want to have a zumba community too, and I’m also going to Singapore for two weeks in Feburary. I’ll need someone I like and trust to sub my classes >_<

    You are really connected to the zumba community and I admire your initiative and energy. I hope you can put me in touch with other zumba instructors just like you. P.s- my classes are tues and thurs 12noon, not a good time for zumba instructors with a day job.

    In any case, thanks for being an inspiration and I hope you are doing superfantastic!
    peace, Flo

  2. Hi Alena,

    Would you want to do a feature on HomeRun by chance? We would absolutely love to feature you if so! It would be something like your CBS offer, but the freedom to change it as you please. I am very sorry for writing to you here as a comment, but am not sure how to contact you.

  3. Hello, I am a Zumba instructor on Marco Island Forida. (I think I saw you at the convention in Orlando) I will be in San Fransisco April 7-11 and I would like to take your class on the 9th in the morning. Can you please confirm with me your schedule that morning and location… Thank you! Looking forward to taking your class!
