1. March 28 – Positive Sisterhood Zumbathon to raise HIV awareness.  I will be a guest instructor.  Flyers will be handed out in class tonight.
2.  April 11 – National Annual Walk for Epilepsy (3,000 – 5,000 people) – I will be leading the walk with a few Zumba routines. If you or someone you know has epilepsy and you want to donate your time for such a great cause, I invite you to join me on stage.  Please let me know if you are able to join me.  We will need to coordinate.
3. June 20th – WipeOut Run – Washington DC - RFK Stadium, Second Wave (11:30am – 3:00pm) – Team BODYY.  Please use this link to register:



As we prepare to get our bodies ready for Spring and Summer, I invite you to join me in cutting liquid calories out of our daily routine for the entire month of March.  With one cheat day a week.  If you really want to trim that waste line, this is the challenge for you.  For those of you participating, I will be conducting waist measurements only this Saturday immediately before and after class.  It is a good idea to do, in order to know where you started.  (If you have any medical conditions, please consult your doctor before beginning this challenge.  I am not a doctor, nutritionist, nor dietitian.  Just your dance fitness instructor wanting to ad in getting our beach bodies ready!!!)

In addition to cutting liquid calories, I am challenging everyone to doing 50 core/ab exercises everyday.

What People Are Saying...

  • “I have lost over 20 pounds since starting ZumbawithShirrita in February. Coming to her classes is the most fun I have ever had exercising hands down!!!! The music and energy of the classes are so much fun that you don’t realize how hard you have worked out!”

    — Tiffany Patterson,
  • My weight loss of 45 lbs has been over a period of 1 year. It has been a slow but steady progress. My motivation to lose weight was just being tired of being tired if you know what I mean. I can honestly say that because of Shirrita’s pleasant disposition and not to mention – great music and choreography; I look forward to working out. It doesn’t feel like a chore.
