Business owners Lily and Viktor are husband and wife who are passionate about healthy living and want to share their knowledge with people. They want to see people thriving, being healthy, fit and full of energy, who feel great about themselves and their body.

Lily has always been struggling with her weight since early childhood. She was bullied as a teenager, and that's when her long-lasting yo-yo dieting journey started. It continued up until her twenties when she decided to stop following unhealthy weight-loss plans. She felt that losing weight should be sustainable, and in the end, people should feel and look great, be 100% healthy and full of energy. That's when she decided to train as an aerobics instructor, and later as a nutritionist. She has also become a licenced Zumba instructor.

Viktor, on the other hand, has always been struggling to gain weight - how funny, isn't' it? He has also been attracted by healthy ways of building muscles and was exploring ways to live a healthy life. He is a life coach, whose primary purpose is to guide and help people to reach their full potential.

Lily and Viktor met at a salsa class in Dublin in 2008. Their journey has begun, both in their private life, as well as in business.

They founded Dance and Health in 2011, and with the help of their extraordinary instructors, they've been influencing the lives of thousands of people to enjoy their exercise.

Our instructors:


Her dancing career started in early childhood, being a professional gymnast for ten years. Later, she learned more and more types of movement: classical ballet, jazz ballet, and tried different modern dance techniques, from Dancehall to Contemporary, you name it. She continued her career as a dance teacher assistant, also participated in performances and movies. She got certified as a Zumba instructor in 2013, in Dublin, and started to teach as a brand new journey in her dancing career. Customers love her positive energy and the way she shares the love of dance.


She's been dancing since she was a kid. She has done: ballet, jazz, contemporary dance, Latin dance, hip-hop, commercial dance, among others. She has also been involved in musical theatre where she received dance training. After she started to attend Zumba classes, she fell in love with it and decided to become an instructor herself. Pursuing this goal, she became a certified Zumba instructor in Dublin in 2016, and since then she keeps sharing the love of dance. 


Having experience in dance competitions and performances, she also believes that fitness has to be a lifestyle. Both health and dancing are her passions, and she decided that teaching Zumba would be an excellent way to fulfil her aspirations to spread energy and fun. Her bubbly personality is infectious and would make people feel energised during and after her classes. Her goal is to help class attendees forget about the daily stress and leave each class feeling happy. 


You will instantly notice her passion for teaching ZUMBA when you attend a class with her. When she doesn't teach, she attends events, to broaden her knowledge and to bring even more fun to her students. Her encouraging smile makes even the most nervous first-timer feel relaxed immediately after entering the room. She knows how to disguise exercise and make it a fun and enjoyable experience. She can create a friendly and relaxing atmosphere while engaging the attendees. You will feel refreshed and have a big smile on your face after every class, and will already be excited about the next class.


She has been dancing all her life, and Zumba was love at first dance move when she first attended a class many years back. She then pursued her secret dream to become a certified Zumba instructor, and she is now happily sharing her passion with others. She knows how to make you sweat, but her encouraging smile and the fun dance moves she incorporates in the class will make you enjoy all the hard work. You will not even realise you are exercising - only when you notice your sweaty clothes after class! People love her energetic and fun classes. Her attitude and smile will make you feel relaxed right from the start, and after attending her class, you will feel energised and ready to take over the world!


She brings her passion for dance and fitness to Ireland all the way from Brasil! Her purpose is to make fitness fun and make it accessible to all fitness levels, all shapes and sizes. She believes that the most important job of an instructor is to make people feel happy. And that's exactly what she strives to achieve in every class. Her upbeat and engaging personality will make you come back for more class after class. She brings a lot of positive energy to all her classes and easily creates a party atmosphere, where everyone leaves the class with a big smile on their face. She makes sure you will feel happy after every class!


She is a real fitness fanatic: she is a PE teacher and personal trainer, but what's really close to her heart, is dancing. She loves to see people smiling in her class, so she jumped on the opportunity to become a certified Zumba instructor. She loves to share the love of health and wellbeing and brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to her classes. Her smile, cheerfulness and professional attitude make you feel at ease right from the start. You will feel like you are in the "best hands" throughout her class. You will be buzzing after each class, excited to be back for more!
