My name is Drew and I teach Zumba (r) at the Saratoga Regional Y! I started dance at age 5 and trained in tap, jazz, and ballet. After graduating college and moving to Saratoga, I realized how much I missed dance class! I joined the YMCA in my brand new town and took my first Zumba (r) class that night. The music was pumping, the atmosphere was exciting, and I loved the escape from daily stresses. I had discovered a new joy; something big. A few years later my favorite instructor moved away. I obtained my Zumba (r) license shortly after! I've met my closest friends through class - Brianne Bixby and I have been on this Zumba (r) journey together ever since.
I am a Vermonter and graduated from the University of Vermont in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I currently work as an RN in the operating room.
Connecting with students and leading this class are what I look forward to most of all. I've found a way to stay fit and share that love of dance with others through Zumba (r) Fitness!
