Thanks to our new friends readers from the US, Luxembourg, South Korea, New Zealand, Trinidad & Tobago, and Denmark!
Irina, a very active 1Zumba instructor in Denmark. We invited her to join our blog, and she was so enthusiastic about it. Straightforward she provided her availability time, and she emailed us on time, all the materials we asked from her.
From the way we communicated with her, we were able to see how committed and serious she was about 1Zumba. We like to thank her for that zeal, and we wish her all the best. 😉
