The Zumba Instructor

The Zumba Instructor

Do the Zumba!

This is Maria Hall from Tungelsta. I think it's safe to say that she is crazy about zumba. I noticed her performing during the Haninge Day celebrations on Saturday and took a few photos of that before asking her for a portrait. Maria has a full time job for the municipality, and a family, but still has time to work as a zumba instructor at the Haninge Fitness Studio. This summer she has also had zumba classes at the beach. And at several night clubs, which she told me was a bit different. Oh, and she will also take the zumba on the sea with a cruise ship this Autumn. No surprise then that dancing is one of her big hobbies. A few years ago Maria did a lot of Street Dance. It sure looks like zumba is a fun and effective way to stay fit. If you want to see more check out this Zumba blog where you can see Maria perform. More photos from the celebrations in the coming days.

Your portrait is terrific, with that colorful and diffused background.

I have never heard of zumba. Although it looks like fun I am probably too old for it. Love the background, whatever it is, in the top picture.
