August E-Newsletter from Zumba with Jess

Meet Alix Marcus !
Alix = New Thursday Class Instructor


Alix started her career as a dancer at the tender age of seven. Falling in love immediately with the creative disciplines of ballet, modern, jazz, and lyrical she began her journey as a competitive dancer at The Gold School in Brockton, MA. After several years of competitive dance and at the beginning of her high school career, Alix placed into an esteemed pre-professional dance program, Boston Youth Moves, at the Jeanette Neill Dance Studio in Boston, MA. With the rigorous hours and training Alix quickly realized she would continue into her adult life as a professional dancer. Dance stuck with Alix through her college years at UMass- Boston, and she even took those dreams all the way to New York City.


Enjoying every second of life as a dancer in the city where dreams come true, an unfortunate injury occurred during a demanding day of rehearsals. A meniscus tear abruptly pushed Alix out of the competitive dance scene in New York City (temporarily), but opened another door to the fitness dance craze, Zumba. She started taking the Zumba classes offered at her work place, The Alvin Ailey School, and knew she had found something to give her just as much joy as her dance career. Zumba grabbed a hold of her life for the better, and simply taking classes wasn't enough. Only a few months after her first Zumba class, Alix received her certification and began the next chapter in her life as a Zumba instructor. Nothing brings her more joy than to see everyday people benefiting mentally, emotionally, and physically from the dance workout that has caused such a sensation all over the world. She knows first- hand the profound impact dance has on one's life, and loves to share it in an accessible way with the Zumba community.
