Email re: Thursday classes

Hi Everyone

Quick reminder that I am just doing one pm class a week through August – Thursdays at Sandown Methodist Church Hall, 7pm. There’s just one Thursday I can’t make – Aug 19th; which leaves three that I can! (Aug 5th, 12th and 26th - £5 x 3 pay up front, thanks to everyone for supporting me in this).

Term will resume September 2nd and continue until week of Christmas (can’t believe I’ve mentioned that word already!)

As I consider the class now nicely established, I am planning long-term so I can offer the following options:

Pay Monthly (Sept £5 x 5 = £25; October £5 x 4 = £20; November £5 x 4 = £20; December £5 x 3 = £15)


Half Termly – First half: £45; Second half: £35


Termly @ £80


Per week @ £6

If that is way too much info, way too far in advance, panic not – it will be on my website where you can also see via pics of all the crazy things I intend putting you through in the future re: Halloween, Children in Need, Christmas etc!

I’d just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you all for helping me ‘get back on my feet again’ – literally. Going from 10 classes a week pre-COVID to none has been HORRIBLE and I am so enjoying picking up the reins again.  I had wondered whether it would be possible to ‘start all over again’ following my move to the Island in Feb this year and you lovely people have really helped me through this potentially difficult transition period; and made me feel a definite, Yes I can!


I could go on about the Olympics and how Zumba is going to be one of the new additions for 2024! But I’ll stop now!

See you Thursday








Zoom classes on an ad hoc, as and when basis - I post these here and send out emails to my regular attendees.

I have copied ZOOM instructions for you to follow below:


To participate you will need to download the app 'ZOOM'. On a device with a camera, either a phone, tablet or laptop. 

Once you've have downloaded the app to your device, you'll then be ready to join a meeting/online class and the following will display on the screen. You'll need to click to join the meeting:

 STEP 3:
You'll then be prompted for a meeting code and password, and I will email this code to you prior to the start of your class - I'm hoping this will be the morning of the day of class, depending how far in advance you book your class.

When you join the meeting (online class), you will need to enable the sound and video on your device. Each device is slightly different, but with a Windows Laptop, IPhone and IPad, you will be asked if you want to join with computer audio, and you need to click this option.

You will be able to join your class 10 minutes before the start time, so we can have a little welcome chat and get you up and running properly, then you will need to mute your device (accessed via the microphone icon on the bottom of your Zoom video screen), so that you can only hear me and the music and not the other participants.

You will be visible to me, as this is needed for insurance purposes, as I need to be able to see what you are doing, to make sure you are not at risk of injury. I will be the largest tile on your screen, and you have the option to just see you and me or the option to see all the other participants, but these will be in small boxes around the screen. This option will be in the settings visible on your screen.

zumba is far more enjoyable (and a far better work out) once you are familiar with the music and the routines. I try and stress this to beginners but too often I think people leave thinking either 'Help! I can't master 14 plus routines .... ever!' Or with the sense that they haven't pushed themselves physically - which is difficult to do if you are watching/trying to follow someone else's choreography. The only way you will 'up the level of exertion' is by becoming familiar with the music and moves - and then you can go for it! Sounds obvious but I think it needs reinforcing - so that people appreciate the benefit of coming regularly and committing themselves.

Again, although I stress that everyone and anyone can do zumba - there is definitely no age, fitness, ability barrier - it is a lot more enjoyable when you become familiar with the music and the routines so I really would say - Come to as many as you can! Always pleased to see you!
