Zumba's Other Entrepreneurs
The New Contemporary
Sofia Upton has a background in contemporary dance, having trained at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. She says: "I love the Latin music and rhythms, and feel that my dance skill and my love for Latin culture blend well."
In addition to running her own dance studio, called Jackie'O, in Brighton, England, Upton teaches 10 Zumba classes a week, and hosts Zumba-themed parties.
"The Zumba craze that is currently taking over the U.K. attracts all cultures and age groups, which makes for lively and vibrant classes," Upton says.
