In-studio classes are a HIT! Plus, PIP for breast cancer research!
Oct 2020 Newsletter
October is breast cancer awareness month and for us it means a Party in Pink event to raise money for breast cancer research. This year we are raising money for the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center and all funds will go back to the Cancer Center for breast cancer research! Our event this year is on 10/23/2020, suggested donation $12. See more details below! My girl Rita is taking the lead in organizing this event, but you can be sure that our ZCREW instructors will be there to help every step of the way! It will be virtual so anyone can join from ANYWHERE!

Our in-studio classes have been very well received and we have SOLD OUT the last 3 weeks of those classes with 2 people always on the wait list!

Join us as we #movetogive again this year! Its tradition for our studio to host a Party in Pink event in support and in honor of all the the people battling this deadly disease, the ones who have won the battle and the ones we have lost. My girl Rita Stange is taking the lead on organizing this virtual event and I am happy to be her co-host. All of our instructors are helping to bring this event to you wherever you may be in the world!

All proceeds from this event will go to the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center, specifically designated to support the amazing work that our researchers are doing to end breast cancer. I am proud to say that I work for the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center and have always wanted to do something like this so its great that Rita, our instructors and YOU are helping to make that a reality!
A message from Sabrina
Our studio is now officially 4 years old! Thank you to all of you who came to celebrate with us! Special thanks to my family, my ZCREW instructors and all of the invited guest instructors that came to celebrate with us! What a special treat to have all of us on the same virtual dance floor! It was the the most perfect 4th birthday a studio ever had so thank you all for your continued support!

This month we are continuing to connect virtually and we now have our in-studio HYBRID classes to welcome back our friends that for whatever reason were not able to connect with us virtually. It feels great to be back in the studio again and even though we are all in masks, its great to see everyone's eyes smiling back at me! We are also continuing our tradition of moving to give this year with our Party in Pink event! This year is especially exciting because my "real-job" world collides with my "fun-job" world as we are donating all profits raised in this Zumbathon to the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center. I am overjoyed to help bring this to fruition with my girl Rita who is handling much of the logistics this year. Thank you Rita!

We are continuing to grow our ZCREW family virtually and we invite you to tell your friends and family in other states and around the world about our Zumba family and ask them to join us at a class! Our ZCREW family now extends to other areas in NM, CO, AZ, CA, VA, NY, NJ, NC, SC, TN, TX, OR, PA, HI, Australia and COLOMBIA!!

If you find yourself in difficult financial situations and you can't afford classes, PLEASE contact me privately and we will work something out. Also, if you are having technical difficulties with Zoom or your personal set up, please contact me privately and I can give you some pointers (preferably after you read the above instructions and tips for virtual classes). If you have questions about in-studio classes, I am here for you!

As always I am available by phone to all of you if you have questions about your account or about classes. I can also do credit card transactions over the phone if that helps you. If you are on social media, please friend or follow me so we can keep in contact in every way possible!
Get rewarded for joining us!

Loyalty Points
All of you are still receiving loyalty points for every class you attend which can be turned in for FREE classes and 20% percentage off your next punch card or unlim pass. You MUST call me to redeem the 20% off, there is not a way to get your discount online, I need to manually put in the discount. Make sure we have your phone number so that you can receive text updates about how many points you have and whether you would like to redeem them for anything.

Contact Sabrina to redeem or for details.
One of the great things about virtual classes is that we get to connect with others who have moved away or are not local. So this means you can have your family members join us from different states or even out of the country!

You can help our studio by sharing this information with others anywhere in the world either by email or social media using this link. Plus you will even get rewarded when the people you refer join our classes! Contact Sabrina for details.
