Eva was born to parents who were performers for the Ringling Brothers' Circus, and from day one she has been intrigued with anything that challenged the body and mind.

Her worldwide dancing experiences have included Disney Productions, Legends in Concert, "STORM," and Sin City Productions.

FARRAH HINES

Hi Las Vegas! My name is Farrah Hines and I am a licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor. I am originally from Sac-Town California and now, I am loving life and dancing in the fabulous city of Las Vegas for 12 years strong. I came to Sin City as a break-dancer and found jobs as a go-go dancer and show girl. As a part of my work experience here, "Storm" at the Mandalay Bay was a growing experience for me that lead me to many more professional acts as well as the chance to travel to countries like Greece, the Bahamas, and the beautiful island of Hawaii. I have had the opportunity to choreograph for Coors the NFL and many local nightclubs on the Las Vegas Strip as well as being able to perform in, and winning dance competitions on MTV, in New York city and of course at local HOT spots. My style ranges from Hip-Hop, Latin, Funk, Rock, and Country and now that Zumba Fitness has been introduced to my world, everything feels complete. Zumba combines all of my favorite dancing styles into one energetic, party style groove. 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! Email me @ Hines.Farrah@gmail.com with any questions. Come try it, I guarantee you will have a blast! I look forward to meeting you! Ditch the workout, come join the PARTY!!!

Thurs 7pm (Z)

 


 

MONICA JOHNS

Monica is a native of Orange County California and has lived in Las Vegas since 2002. Her background in a variety of dancing styles is extensive from traditional ballet, tap and jazz to also teaching hip hop, musical theater styles and most recently, ballroom dancing.

Adding ballroom dancing in 2006 has allowed Monica to tour the country competitively where she has achieved many distinguished American Rhythm titles. She has also had the opportunity to dance in most of Las Vegas' largest hotels for numerous events including opening for the national tour of Dancing With The Stars as well as dancing for charities such as the National Endowment for the Arts , Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Ballroom for Schools program.

She caught the Zumba bug fairly quickly! The combination of Latin rhythms with hip hop flare and attitude was just too much fun to ignore.

Monica enjoys teaching the kids Zumbatomic program and during adult classes she loves seeing when the "dance divas" show up and bring their own energy to class.

Her classes feature a lean toward ballroom styles including Cha Cha, Samba, Salsa, Rumba and maybe even a a Foxtrot?

As a mother of 3 boys she understands the importance of maintaining a balance and taking the time to do something uplifting for your self:)
