Michelle Lapointe (Director): Zumba®, Family Zumba®, Zumba® Kids Instructor
Michelle Lapointe has been passionate about dance and teaching others how to dance all her life! From the age of 7, she has been taking dance lessons and teaching her little sister all the moves she learned at class. In high school and beyond, she would lead “The Macarena” and other Zumba®-Style routines at school dances, Weddings and other gatherings. So basically, she has been teaching Zumba® even before Zumba® was created! Her dance experience includes recitals, dance competitions, shows at public venues, CFL cheerleader, Salsa and Ballroom dance instructor, Jazz and Hip-Hop dance teacher, and so on. She’s also a school teacher by day, so she is well equipped to teach all ages and levels! Now, having been a successful Zumba® Instructor for the past 3 years, she is ready and equipped to manage a team of hand-picked professional and quality instructors to be able to make Zumba® more accessible to our Timmins residents!
