California native, Dionne Thomas turned her lifelong love of dance into a career after a sleepless night in 2008 lead her to a Zumba® infomercial. She immediately fell in love with the program and is most passionate about making fitness FUN. Dance fitness has helped her maintain a 50 pound weight loss and she has learned that consistency leads to success.
In 2013 Dionne was honored to be selected as a Zumba® Jammer and has since traveled the U.S. and Canada creating choreography and teaching other instructors. Dionne is a certified AFAA group exercise instructor also licensed to teach Zumba Gold®, Zumba Toning®, and The GROOVE®!
Somewhere along the way Dionne realized she was not just teaching dance fitness classes, she is helping people re-discover themselves and change their lives. Guiding and inspiring people to the best versions of themselves became her new inspiration. In 2019 she created a workshop called Moving into My Power to help people use the power of dance beyond the dance floor. Knowing that people are empowered to take chances and step out of self-imposed boundaries keeps Dionne moving through the world with passion.
