Angela Franklin has been impacting lives through Zumba for over 4 years. Her Zumba journey began in 2011 when she was on a mission to find an exercise program that she would stick to and not get bored. That’s when she found Zumba. She was hooked from the very first class, and eventually decided to become an instructor. The weight loss Angela has experienced from Zumba is evidence that it works! The best thing about Zumba is that it is for EVERYBODY! You do not need any dance experience to do Zumba. All you need is love for music and moving your body. That’s it! Angela encourages you to give Zumba a try. Join the party!!!Angela aka “Ang” was born in Baltimore and raised in Columbia.
