About Me

Hi, Im Ellena Schoop (Scope)   drawn the the rhythm of the drums I've studied, performed and taught dances from Senegal, Mali, the Ivory Coast of West Africa, Ghana, Brazil, and the carribean, along with afrocuban.  Zumba bring many of these elements and more making it fun and easy to learn.  This is why I love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: Every class feels like a party! Come join me and you\'ll see what I mean. You don\'t even have to know how to dance. Just move your body and follow my lead. It\'s easy! Come try it, I guarantee you will have a blast! I look forward to meeting you!
