Zumbathon Charity Event for Augie’s Quest in Singapore, March 10th

Zumbathon Charity Event for Augie’s Quest in Singapore, March 10th

Thank you, thank you, to all of the amazing Zumba enthusiasts who danced their hearts out at the FIRST Zumbathon Charity Event for Augie’s Quest on March 10th in Singapore!!


Your energy, enthusiasm, professionalism, passion, and support were integral to the outstanding success of our Zumbathon Charity Event in support of ALS.  I cannot tell you enough how honored and privileged I was to be a part of such an incredible team of Zumba Instructors, include Yannick, Zumba Jammer from Australia.  It was truly a pleasure to meet, dance and shake it with each of you and I am so looking forward to seeing you all again soon!  I enjoyed chatting with you at the meet and greet and dancing with you at the roof top party!  I am still smiling from the pure electricity from the event!

We did have the most massive turn-out we have ever seen in a Zumba event in Singapore and we have donated a phenomenal amount over SGD5500 to the charity of Augies Quest. We are so proud of what we all achieved, and it was not to benefit our bank accounts, but really to shine the light to the cause.

Monica and Airin – sensational organizing of such a smooth, successful and well executed event!  Thank you for gathering such a dynamic, passionate team of ZINs together for such a meaningful cause.
And many thanks to the incredible Kurt, Eddy, sound team and everyone else who made this event so memorable!
The United We Dance event will go down in Singapore Zumba memory as one of the most heartfelt and memorable moments of the culture’s history!
Wishing you the best of health and happiness!

Thank you to everyone who joined the party and fight against liver cancer at the first ZUMBATHON AT STANFORD!!! What a HUGE success!  I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm, excitement and number of people who rocked the house.  Seriously, I am on the biggest Zumba high right now!

Thank you to the fabulous Instructors!

Thank you to the incredible ZIN bringing their students, friends and family!

Thank to you my students who came down from SF!

Thank you to the Stanford PE (Wendy, Jennifer), the Asian Liver Center (Diana, Amy, Chrissy, Meredith) and Team HBV (all of our volunteers!)  for all of their behind the scenes work, including registration, education and outreach!

Upcoming Events!

Hello everyone!

Happy Saturday night!  What a great start to the weekend: I saw AVATAR (finally!) in 3D with Zack last night and it was simply amazing!  What an incredible visual display and great story – I just hope people pick up on the not-so-subtle environmental messages throughout the movie.  It almost felt like the planet was an underwater world filled with sea anemones and soft corals (that’s the scuba diver side of me coming out).

Today, I went up to San Rafael with Morgan to shake our tailfeathers with Efren (a fellow Zumba Instructor) at his free class at this gorgeous dance studio in Marin.  And the Wall Street Journal was there doing an article on fitness happiness (ooh, maybe we’ll be famous!)  I always love meeting new instructors in the area and taking their classes (always good to “steal” great ideas too!)

Then, I had a coffee date at Philz (yum! philtered soul all the way), which felt like talking to a long-lost sister-friend.  All in all, a great start to the weekend!

Just don’t forget an EXTRA Zumba class tomorrow morning at 9am at 24 Hour Fitness Potrero!!  We will rock it!
