January 21, 2012, Saratoga Springs – Did you know there was a Flash Mob today at Wilton Mall in Saratoga NY? About 40 local Zumba fans met together this morning at 11:15am and got busy to LMFAO’s hit “Sexy and I Know It” and added an encore song, Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger” in Saratoga’s Wilton Mall (video below!). Who was behind this carefully choreographed plan? Saratoga mama and Zumba instructor Stacey Doltz.
“I wanted to spread the word about Zumba and how much fun it can be. Zumba is so much more than just a fitness class to me. It’s now my way of life- and can be for so many others too,” Doltz said.
Stacey teaches Zumba classes all over Saratoga County and has built up a huge following of adoring fans. After falling in love with Zumba from taking classes at the YMCA in 2008, Doltz decided to become an instructor and Zumba is now her full-time job. Doltz is currently licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba Toning (Zumba with Light weight) and Zumbatomic (Zumba for kids) Her current class schedule can be found on the Zumba with Stacey Facebook Page.
From hosting fundraising Zumbathon events, performing at Madison Square Garden during a half-time show, to participating in monthly ‘Zumba in the Club’ events at Vapor Nightclub, now Doltz can add Flash Mob’s to her impressive Zumba resume! Doltz is planning another flash mob for February at West Mountain Ski Resort in Glens Falls NY.
If you love Zumba, your kids will too! Stacey Doltz teaches Zumbatomic for kids ages 6 and up at Malta Community Center in Malta NY.
During Zumbatomic , I break songs down for them to learn and at the end of every class, the children have a dance to show to their parents. We play dance games, laugh and get our bodies moving! It’s a fantastic way to get the kids out of the house, off the couch and moving!
Doltz will be offering a FREE trial Zumbatomic on February 16th at 4:45 at the Malta Community Center. Pre registraion is required for this class by calling the Community Center at 899-4411.
**On March 24th from 7-9 Doltz is hosting a Zumba event at the Malta Community Center called Shake, Shimmy and Salsa the Winter Blues Away “The idea behind this is that there are so many of us (including myself) who deal with depression …especially this time of year. So I’m holding an event for the public to offer a night of fun dancing to help not be home and feeling blue,” Doltz said.
“I have NEVER left a Zumba class not feeling happy, motivated and just feeling good!”
