Fun Facts About Kaissa
What class do you teach?
I teach Zumba, BodyCombat, BodyPump, Abs Blast, and very soon I’ll add on to BodyFlow.
Why do you love what you do?
A great opportunity to share with others one of my talent and it’s dance. Finally, to let myself shine with my students and sharing my passion, talent, and the ideas I create. My moment to let it out and no one is here to judge and share who I am.
What is something no one knows about you?
Nobody knows that I’m vegan. I’ve been vegan for 5 years and such an amazing transition.
How do you motivate people who hit a fitness plateau?
Choice of music and sharing words of wisdom. For example, as you listen to the lyrics gives a reflection or a reminder, “Why you’re here.” There are times we tempt to forget and just know your being schedule to go to the gym but what’s the reason. Then once you get that “A-ha" moment and seeing your instructor’s smile give the courage to continue on little by little like as a flower blooms.
Do you have any hidden talents?
Yes, and the answer is dance. I’ve been dancing around four or five years old thanks to my friends who knew dance would be part of my life as when I grow. I started with break dance, hip-hop, pop, ballet, jazz, waltz, and etc. Now, I’m a Zumba instructor and introducing the style I grew up with and pass it to you.
If you weren’t an instructor, what job would you like and why?
I would choice to be a Dance teacher because its somewhat relate but differences is we get to teach the proper way and starting of with basic steps. This is part of my goal to see my students flow out of the stage and still is a dream that I want to be a dance teacher. Since I was little girl I always wanted to be a dancer, but I never did because I had a trauma head injury from a car accident and held me back from life, school, and work. As of 2020, my track goal is to return back to school and major dance, which is my hidden secret.
Have you worked with notable people?
Yes, I have worked with Shane Sparks, judges from So You Think You Can Dance. He is the reason I’m continuing as a career of a dancer because he believes I got the skills and wants me to put myself out there is why I continue by starting of as a Zumba instructor.
What is your favorite healthy/cheat meal?
Lasagna and as long is plant-based I’ll take it because I’m vegan.
