Zumba Instructor

Hey, I am Bethany! Growing up, I did not always have the healthiest habits. I struggled to find something I enjoyed and could stick to. I found Zumba in 2009 and have been hooked ever since. Zumba really helped me discover my love for fitness and health. In 2013, I decided to become a certified instructor and share my passion with everyone I could. I love the community and relationships Zumba creates. I feel like I’m dancing with family during every class. When I’m not doing Zumba or enjoying other fitness classes, you can probably find me staying active outside walking with my dog. You may even catch her at a class!

Zumba Instructor

Hi there! I am Christina Ciereck and I am a Syracuse native. I began my extensive dance training at the Center of Ballet and Dance Arts, with Deborah Boughton, in ballet, jazz, and modern. I completed my undergraduate and graduate work at Syracuse University, where I was involved in the DanceWorks program. I have been teaching dance for several years at a variety of locations and choreographed the Spring Musical at CBA for over 25 years. My love of dance led to me becoming a certified Zumba instructor, which has given me several opportunities to host Zumbathons and other charity events. My classes are full of energy and good music, looking forward to seeing you there!
