73yr old Grandma Shellie (a.k.a. Dr. Shellie Gretah Fraddin, Ph.D.)  is a LICENSED ZUMBA BASIC, ADVANCED, AQUA ZUMBA, ZUMBATOMIC AND ZUMBA GOLD Instructor. She is licensed to teach classes all over the world and has taught Zumba Fitness in FL, AZ, NM, NY and VA.


She’s a petite, size 8, with an athletic, trim body, who attributes her agelessness to her exciting career as a  Health & Wellness Coach for Women. Under this umbrella, she teaches Zumba Fitness classes on land and water, holds 3 state massage licenses and is Nationally Certified by NCBTMB.

Dancing has always been one of her lifelong passions, particularly Latin dancing. She practices what she preaches, lives and breathes health and fitness, and teaches healthy living workshops throughout the world. When you meet Grandma Shellie, you’ll meet an ageless woman who vibrates with a passion for life, teaching and learning.


Dr. Shellie teaches ZUMBA GOLD classes to seniors 55+ and Parkinsonians.


Her very exciting and energizing classes often exceed 50 participants, who leave the class wanting more. The participants become addicted to the fun, the music and to the feeling of well being they experience after taking a ZUMBA GOLD class. Her philosophy is, ‘if you’re still breathing, you can dance’.

for those with PD (Parkinson’s Disease)


One of her pet projects was  teaching ZUMBA GOLD classes for the American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA), South Florida Chapter. Dr. Shellie presented Zumba Gold at their monthly support group meetings in Lake Worth, Delray Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. The Parkinsonians, their caregivers and Dr. Shellie laughed and danced and shared hugs at each class.  She regularly discussed the latest research about the benefits of dance and its effects on PD.  Neurologists strongly recommend  dancing as the best exercise for those suffering from a neurological condition.


As a result of her commitment to share the message to the world about the benefits of DANCING, Shellie has lectured in FL, AZ, NY and VA on the following topics:

DANCE:      YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT

     DANCING:  THE BEST ANTI-DEPRESSAN

DANCING:  A MOVING MEDITATION

                 DANCING:  SAFER THAN  PROZAC

 

The activities Dr. Shellie weaves into her practice, empower her clients to create a life filled with health & wellness, fun and adventure. She is now living in Virginia Beach, VA and is available for speaking engagements and Zumba Fitness classes throughout the world.


ZUMBA GOLD  is dance-aerobics using Latin American music and steps from Merengue, Salsa, Cha Cha, Cumbia, Calypso, Mambo, Belly Dance and even some Rock and Roll. ZUMBA FITNESS classes are usually high impact and fast-paced with intricate steps in a choreographed routine that include some jumping.


SHELLIE AND DERRICK

ZUMBA GOLD classes, on the other hand, are specifically designed to address the needs of the active older adult, 55+  and the beginner ZUMBA dancer and those with physical limitations and those who HATE TO EXERCISE.The pace is slower, more repetition and instruction using the same music.


ZUMBA GOLD is designed to teach basic steps of all the dances, improve balance, improve mind/body coordination, increase cardiovascular activity, just to mention some of the benefits, with easy-to-follow instructions that anyone at any age can do, even those requiring chairs or wheelchairs.

**

Shellie encourages you to hear and feel the music, one of the most important parts of the class. When you feel the music and visualize yourself dancing the steps,sitting or standing, you’re dancing ZUMBA.

**

ZUMBA GOLD is a party like atmosphere. It’s fun, different, easy and effective and it’s great for the mind, body and soul.
