Abby Bella Dance Studio Helps Seniors Heat Up the Dance Floor With ZUMBA GOLD

July 1, 2008 ·

“I can’t believe Grandma’s doing that!” laugh the grandchildren of sixty-nine year old, Shellie Gretah Fraddin, Ph.D, LMT, now more known as ‘Scottsdale ZUMBA Queen.’ Yes, it’s true. Grandma Shellie teaches ZUMBA!

Abby Bella Dance Studio welcomes Shellie who is a certified expert in the hot Latin fitness dance program, ZUMBA, to lead ZUMBA GOLD which is now offered on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9:30-10:30 AM. A testament to the notion that one can ‘jam’ at any age, Shellie attributes much of her youthful energy to Latin dancing.

ZUMBA GOLD address the needs of the active older adult, beginner ZUMBA dancer, or anyone with any physical limitation (several dancers are dancing just fine in a chair). “I have bad knees and participate in Abby Bella’s ZUMBA GOLD classes in a chair. I have a great time moving to the music and always leave wanting more,” says one of the senior dancers.

The studio also offers the fast-paced version of ZUMBA FITNESS which, like the GOLD version, incorporates Merengue, Salsa, Cha Cha, Cumbia, Calypso, Mambo, Belly Dance with fun Latin music beats.

Catering to adult dancers at all levels, Abby Bella with its ‘best in class’ instructors, offers plenty more variety with hip-hop (levels 1 & 2), ballet, belly dancing, cardio striptease, ballroom, tap, jazz, jazz workout, Latin dance, Latin conditioning, modern, ballet barre, yoga and pilates. “I hardly ever go to dance clubs anymore, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to dance like they do in the clubs. I’m having fun and getting a killer workout in the different classes at Abby Bella,” states a thirty-something Scottsdale mother of two.

Abby Bella Dance Studio is located at 10855 N Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd., Suite 102, Scottsdale AZ, 85259 (North of the Fresh & Easy at Shea in the Adobe Ranch Plaza). For more information, call #480.767.3994.

Dr. Shellie aka Grandma Shellie is now living and working in Virginia Beach, VA.
