Kirsten Rhodes is a native of South-central Pennsylvania. Although she never was involved in organized dance, she spent many years enjoying social dancing such as swing and line dance. She also taught line dancing locally for a season. Fast forward through 16+ years of marriage, business ownership, and 4 children and Kirsten found herself turning to dance once again as a way to remain active. This time she fell in love with Zumba, eventually deciding to become a licensed Zumba Instructor.
Kirsten enjoys challenging her students to get outside their own limiting ideas of what they can accomplish and to simply make moving fun. If she has learned anything on this Zumba adventure, it is that God has gifted each of us with much more ability than we allow ourselves to access as a result of self image issues. Finally moving past these hang-ups is rewarding, not only for ourselves, but also immensely encouraging for the people around us who are trying to shed their own hindrances. Kirsten is on staff at the Lancaster Family YMCA where she is a Zumba Instructor. She is excited to be able to share this freedom through Zumba with the Cavod family.
