Zumba for Venezuela - In a response to the unrest in her home country of Venezuela, fellow Zumba instructor Mary Dominguez hosted a fundraiser event to raise money for families in Venezuela. iDanze Fitness participated in this event along with several other beautiful instructors from the Zumba Community! The event raised $3000 that was used to send supplies and food to Venezuela. Great Job Mary!!
Women Take Charge was designed to encourage women to take action in regards to their health. In partnership with the Richmond Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated iDanze Fitness helped develop an event that targeted Women over 50 and Mothers with young daughters.
