Juliet has a background in dance, and has been teaching movement classes since 2001.  Her passion for music and creating her own choreography inspired her to create “Ayre” in 2012.  She chose this name because Ayrshire Scotland is where she has a lot of family and where her mother grew up.  It also has other meanings that seem fitting — music being one! Juliet draws from a wide variety of music and dance styles.  Her classes provide a high energy, upbeat, full body workout.  Juliet always welcomes new “Ayreheads” , and enjoys teaching to a variety of levels and experience.

Zumba Fitness is a Latin-based dance/fitness class. Whether you have two left feet and are looking to find the right, or are a professional dancer looking for something outside the gym, Zumba is for you! We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
