Most of the classes are back in the studio, have you come to dance with us yet?
August 2021 Newsletter
July also had its ups and downs...we raised over $2000 for our Zumba instructor friend Mary Martinez who died in the hot air balloon tragedy earlier this summer. We hosted a beautiful event honoring her memory with our instructors and we were very pleased with how it turned out. Thank you all who donated for the family! We also had some great classes including the Colombian Independence Day class plus Toning and Strong classes! Despite some minor set backs at the end of the month (no need to dwell on details) we were again reminded that nobody can stop us from dancing and we are #StrongerTogether. Thank you for your understanding when we had to cancel classes and thank you for your support when we were able to resume! Also huge thank you to my instructors who were instrumental at helping us get back on track Tony, Andrea, Jenn and of course my family Fernando and mami.

The delta variant is causing quite a bit of concern across the world and the CDC is recommending we resume mask usage. No changes yet at the studio but lots of places around town are masking up again (UNM, APS and all state and county facilities). We may be forced to make those changes soon by the governor, but we want you to know that your health and the health of our instructors is our main concern. As a result, you may see some of our instructors back in masks. We assure you that this is purely for everyone's protection and consistent with their comfort level. I assure you our instructors will not be teaching if they are sick, so the mask is not due to any illness. Please see below to share your thoughts regarding mask usage during Zumba classes. And just a reminder, DO NOT COME TO THE STUDIO IF YOU ARE SICK!

On the plus side, we welcomed back Jenn, Andrea, Alisa and Nina to the studio for their Zumba classes! In Aug, Jackie will be starting an in person class on Wednesdays at 7:30pm and a virtual class too on Wednesdays at 4:30pm! My classes are all back in the studio, but you can catch them virtually too (hybrid). We know you like options and we are making sure you have plenty at the studio (and online)!

Rita's farewell from the studio
Unfortunately, one of our favorite instructors Rita was not able to resume her classes at the studio. We love and miss her dearly and we know you do too. Rest assured that she will be joining classes when she can and she might sub from time to time! Rita wanted to say a couple words too...see below.
Dear ZCREW,
THANK YOU for (almost) 5 Years at Sabrina's ZCREW Fitness! Sad to say I won't be returning to teach in person classes, BUT I'll STILL see you at classes, events and celebrations occasionally- or perhaps a virtual class down the road.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to our ZCREW family- Sabrina, the ZCREW Instructors and all of you, the students- for all your love and support. LOVE you guys.

Forever your girl,
Rita Ramone

We will celebrate with a Masterclass with our ZCREW on Friday 9/10/21 starting at 6:30pm. Please pencil this date in on your calendar and stay tuned for details.
A message from Sabrina
Thank you to all who continue to support the studio thru difficult times. We have hit some difficulties recently and we anticipate additional challenges with the news of the delta variant in the world. Still we are doing our best to continue to provide quality classes (from quality instructors) that you feel safe attending in the studio and quality classes that you can also access from home. Its not easy to keep things going and sometimes I have to do things I don't like to ensure our survival (like raise prices), but we do it because we love our community, we love Zumba and we want to make we can continue to provide classes for years to come. God bless you all for continuing to support the studio even if things aren't perfect, we are always working to do our best for YOU...our ZCREW family!

Thank you for your understanding as we work to keep our studio growing despite these minor set backs. We need your support now more than ever, so I hope you will continue to attend classes and support our ZCREW instructors and the studio. We may not have a choice regarding what happens with our mask policy, but I assure you that your health is our top priority and we will do whatever we have to do to ensure your safety while still providing quality classes.

We are continuing to grow our ZCREW family virtually AND IN THE STUDIO and we invite you to tell your friends and family both locally and around the world about our classes!
