Business owners Lily and Viktor met at a salsa class in 2008. That was the beginning of their love story, and they got married in 2015. 
They taught Cuban salsa in Dublin in 2011-2012, but then put it on hold to build the Zumba 'empire' :) 
They founded Dance and Health in 2011, and they work together on creating an excellent experience for all customers. They love to form a great team both in the personal, as well as in the business life. Lily is a certified aerobics instructor, and also a certified ZUMBA instructor since 2010. Their primary goal is to help people fall in love with exercising and make exercise a stable part of their life. "Exercise CAN be fun and enjoyable! Let us prove that to you!"

Our instructors:


Her dancing career started in early childhood, being a professional gymnast for 10 years. Later, she learnt 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's done: ballet, jazz, contemporary dance, Latin dance, hip-hop, commercial dance, among others. She's 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. 


She has been immersed in the Caribbean rhythms for as long as she can remember.
Becoming a Zumba instructor was the natural evolution for this fitness fanatic who loves to express herself through rhythm and dance.
She loves to teach Zumba and delights in seeing the positive feedback from her students. The fact that Zumba is a fantastic cardio workout is an added bonus, but her greatest satisfaction is seeing her students leave with a smile on their face and dance in their hearts.


Her love and passion for teaching ZUMBA cannot be hidden. Once you attend her class, you won't look back.
She has a natural talent to put a smile on her students' face. A smile that lasts from the start of the class until the end, so much that your cheeks will hurt. She makes you feel welcome from the second you arrive. Her intention in every single class is to make people feel like having the time of their life. 
After every class, you will leave with a massive smile on your face despite all the sweating and will look forward to the next class already.


Originally from Brasil, she is an experienced ZUMBA instructor moving the world to the beat of Latin music in her home country, in Cyprus and in London, before moving to Ireland, and now sharing her passion for ZUMBA with people of Dublin. People attending her classes say she has 'charisma' - that might be her secret to being able to make people fall in love with her class instantly. She knows the tricks to make you smile while you jump and squat, and of course, you won't miss learning some Brasilian samba-steps hidden in her choreographies. She will make you sweat and smile, and leave energised after each of her classes. 


She is bursting with energy, and you can't help but feel energised yourself after a class with her. Dance is her passion, and she has a background being part of various dance groups and creating and teaching choreographies in different styles: dancehall, hip-hop - to name a few. She is now in love with teaching ZUMBA, and can't wait to share this passion with everyone. Her friendly and bubbly personality will make you feel relaxed the minute you arrive to the class. People attending her classes say that the atmosphere she creates is amazing, and her energy is infectious. 
She will work you hard, but she is talented in making you enjoy doing it. After each of her classes, you will already look forward to the next one. 


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 is able to 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.
