We are rolling out the virtual red carpet to introduce our new Zumba instructor, Katya Bryleva! Coming straight to Work it Out after dancing in commercials and music videos, and teaching across the globe!
Born and raised in Russia, Katya started her dance training as well as competitive career in ballroom dance at the age of 6. When she came to US on an academic scholarship to study in Midwest, she was exposed to other styles and pursued dance minor in college. Zumba caught Katya's attention right away, because it combined fierce Latin and international rhythms with an intense work out. She loved that it allowed everyone to benefit from dancing, regardless of their dance experience. Her mantra to all her student is: "If you can walk, you can dance!"
In the last seven years Katya taught zumba and dance classes at the university level, fitness studios and dance schools in Russia, the Midwest and New York City. She also ran her own studio in Minneapolis.
