How can you pay?
Many of you have approached me about wanting to pay to attend these online classes. My thoughts on this are we are all struggling financially & for that reason, I do not wish to burden anyone with choosing between paying for a class & buying essentials that you need.That being said, if you still would like to pay, I have created a Pay What You Can structure. What this means is anyone can attend the classes for FREE & if you would like to make a donation to me in any dollar amount to attend the classes, I leave that to you & there is no obligation. I am very grateful for all your love & support.

Simply send an e-transfer to funlovecommunity@gmail.com if you wish to donate.

Stay safe & DANCE!

Cheers,

April Zumba Online during Covid19

What is new? Let’s get ready for next week!

I have been thinking about all of you & praying that you & your families are all safe during this crazy time of Covid19.  It is not easy being at home day in & day out. I know for myself, there have been moments of feeling down, eating too much, boredom & all around just missing people & the freedom to go out.

This difficult time has also had me see the things in my life that I have taken for granted. Especially things like getting together with my friends & family, shopping when I feel like it & going outside to exercise.
For the past 2 weeks, I have been running classes through Zoom online & what I have realized is I am not alone in all these feelings. I have also realized how much JOY it brings us all to gather as a community, even if it only be online, to play some music & DANCE! 🙂
With that in mind, we can now see that April is going to continue to be shut down from social contact.  For that reason, I will continue teachingZUMBA CLASSES WEEKLY through zoom!  
Doesn’t matter where you are in the world….YOU can now come DANCE WITH ME!! 🙂

10 Years TODAY as a Zumba Fitness Instructor!

10 years ago today, I birthed a new career path as a Zumba Fitness Instructor. Who knew what that was going to look like!
I orginally saw it as a part-time gig…Since then, I have taught hundred’s of young people & teens across the GTA from fitness classes, to dance-a-thons, to mental health weeks, to warm ups at large group fitness days.
I have hosted my own classes in the community, taught in gyms, traveled to Jamaica to teach, been in a commercial (not sure it ever aired..lol), taught people from every walk of life & age group.
I have worked with people of all abilities from wheelchairs, to Down’s, to many mental & physical differences. We have danced with weights, in the water, from a chair & more. To now ONLINE classes & connecting the world with dance! I have met & made some of the BEST friendships with incredible woman & men along the way & continue to. We have laughed, sweat, moved & grooved & let self expression reign for a decade!
This moment opened the doors to my LOVE of making a difference for people. This moment opened the door to being trained in Laughter Yoga, Dance for Parkinson’s, Zumba Toning, Zumba Sentao, Aqua Zumba, Zumba Kids & kids Jr., Zumba Core, Stretch classes & more.
I am forever grateful & thankful for the past decade of Love, Laughter, Self Expression & being surrounded by beautiful people along this journey!
I cannot wait to see what the next decade has in store & I am grateful to have the opportunity to share it all with YOU!
THANK YOU for being a part of my life!!
Zumba love to all,
Tammy xoxo

Personal Stories

Our Beloved Zumba Boy Hudson…

Hudson, our dancing Zumba boxer brother/son, crossed over the rainbow bridge last Tuesday surrounded by his loving family, Zoey & the incredible staff Dundas West Animal Hospital. He fought at good fight but in the end we know, he was ready.

Hudson was one of a kind….never barked (once a yearish just so we knew he could if he really wanted to) you knew what he was thinking by his eyes, tail & heavy sighs.❤️

Hudson provided our family daily with unconditional love, laughter, snuggles & play. He helped his Lil’ big sister Zoey overcome losing her mommy & provided her with love & comfort. ❤️🐾🐾❤️

Hudson came home with us on the first day we moved into our new home….every corner of this place reminds me of him. ❤️💔❤️

Hudson also had amazing dancing skills & a lover of music. When he wasn’t with me at Zumba,you could find him at home in the music room chillin with his daddy😍

He went every where with me…when I worked in an office when he was a pup…he would do the 45 minute walk there..take a nap for the day & then walk all the way home❤️ He rode buses & took subways, long car rides & more. He took naps on walks under underpasses 😂🤣…concerning passersby but we always knew…”that’s just our boy!” He worked up in Ninos office (or more just caught sunbeams from a blanket)❤️

Known as “the balcony dog” in the neighborhood in the summer. He would sit for hours on the balcony just watching people walk by.😍🐾🐾❤️

He loved his naps❤️ But as a pup… after a nap came extreme energy & lots of time running, chasing, playing.😍❤️

I would only do certain shopping experiences if I could bring Hudson.❤️

He was the ring bearer at our wedding❤️

Hudson wasn’t just a dog…he was our son, our brother & I am so lucky to have gotten to be his mommy.❤️

Hudson will be missed deeply by his grandparents, aunts, uncles, & all the little people he has loved along the way.❤️❤️

Hudson will be deeply missed by all the Zumba ladies as he came to class often to greet & watch them dance..❤️💃❤️

Hudson will also be missed by all his friends 2legged & 4legged @ckandfriends who he spent time with each week playing & having his own lil life ❤️🐾🐾❤️

He will be deeply deeply missed by his Daddy Nino Ardizzi, sisters Madison ArdizziElise Evaa Ardizzi, Zoey & me….

My heart has forever known a love like no other & I am truly grateful I got to have you in my life. I know this is only goodnight for now.

Wait for me. Our paths will come together again. Gone from the physical but never gone from my heart.❤️❤️❤️

 

Thank you for letting this lil’ guy dance into your heart too!

The Best Things In Life Make You Sweaty!

How true is that statement?!

Pretty true if you ask me! In this case in particular, I am talking about getting your “sweat on” dancing to amazing music and just letting your body move and groove however it wants to!

If you have never tried this, I invite you to give it a go in the comfort of your own home. DO NOT TRY THIS IN FRONT OF A MIRROR! If you do, I assert, you will only start to judge and assess the way you move and make up all sorts of things rather than just getting lost in a good song that makes you feel amazing to move to!

I was a “private dancer” for many years….aka….dancing in my home where nobody could see me.  If you are worried about letting loose in public, this truly is a great place to start.

The next thing to do is to FIND YOUR TRIBE! 

What does this mean?

All this means is finding a group of people, who like yourself, just want to be able to move and de-stress throughout the week. This is a non-judgmental group that just wants to get lost in the music….maybe hoot and holler a little bit….make up moves from time to time on the spot…and learn a few new moves from an instructor.

Where could you find this “tribe”?

Every Wednesday night at 6:45pm a group of AMAZING FUN NON-JUDGMENTAL people come together at High Park Brewery to let loose and shake all the cares and worries away for one hour!  Oh, it is also known as a Zumba Basics class led by….ME! 🙂

The people who come are AWESOME! There are no mirrors so you can just get your groove on, laugh, play and enjoy yourself!  Do not worry about getting it “right”. There is NO right way to dance and de-stress.  The only way you can do this one hour class wrong is if you stand in the corner and quite literally just “stand” there.

I highly recommend you move and however you move is PERFECT!

We have TWO classes left of 2019! Tomorrow and Wednesday December 18th, both start at 6:45pm.  Being we are in a brewery too and not just ANY brewery but one that makes the BEST BEER in Toronto, you can enjoy a cold brew and meet some really great people too!

It is a WIN WIN! What a way to end 2019!  Come do something just for YOU! And bring friends if you like! The more the merrier!  SEE YOU WEDNESDAY!
