Women, We Hear You!


All around the world, women are raising their voices and demanding to be heard. Whether they are fighting for equality, for better pay, for maternity leave, for leadership, or for freedom, one thing is clear: it is an incredible and empowering time to be female.

For as long as history books have been written, strong women have banded together and fought for what they believe in. You often hear that it takes a village to raise a child – take a look around that village. What do you see? More than likely, you see a group of women working together to raise young boys and girls that will mark their place in this world. While this isn’t a new concept, it’s eternally exciting.

We’re here to tell you that we hear you and we’re here for you! After all, behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back. And one place this rings loud and true is in a Zumba® class. A place where you’ll find women (and men) supporting each other, laughing together, smiling from ear to ear, and taking an hour to do something for themselves, in the name of being a better person day in and day out.

So, let’s hear it for the girls and boys who dance to make this world a better place! And to those at the front of the class, leading your tribe and shining in your entrepreneurial spirit, we applaud you! There’s no better time than right now to stand up for what you believe in. #timesup
