Hello, my name is Christina and I am the creator of the Zappy Zebra program here in Stamford CT,

 I hold a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education/Music Performance and a masters degree in Music Education.

I am the director of the Zappy Zebra Themed Summer camp Adventure and I am a teacher in the Stamford area.

I have worked with children my entire life and it is truly my passion. Some of the positions I’ve held include the following:

Walt Disney World Entertainment, Make a Wish Foundation, Professional Corporate teacher/nanny, Elementary Intern, volunteer work for the Big Brother Big Sister program, camp counselor, special events coordinator for ESF summer camp at Greenwich Academy, field trip instructor, volunteer at the Special Olympics, and Stamford Center for the Arts High School Musical Production.

I have enjoyed all of the opportunities and challenges I have experienced over the years working in these various positions, and feel that they have given me the necessary skills to be an outstanding and passionate educator to children on many different levels.

I find working with children to be very rewarding and gratifying. I get excited knowing that as their teacher, I have an impact and play an intricate role in the development and well-being of a child.  I am a trustworthy, honest, fun loving, energetic, dependable, and outgoing individual who works well with others. I look forward to working with your child this summer and teaching him/her the importance of implementing health and fitness while still being able to have fun and being a kid!

Zumba has changed my life. I started taking Zumba classes in March of 2010 and instantly became hooked! The music, the rhythms, the upbeat feeling in class is incredibly contagious! I knew immediately that I had found a second lifetime passion!  After taking many Zumba classes I became a certified instructor and worked for Flair Fitness in Darien, CT. I always had the thought in the back of my mind to combine my talents in teaching and love of Zumba – and that’s how I created Zumba with Zappy Zebra!


** The original program that I designed was ZUMBA WITH ZAPPY ZEBRA.

I started out teaching just Zumba classes for children and then pulled in my teaching and creative arts side and created something much more in depth than just a zumba experience...
This is where our seasonal programs, birthday parties, winter vacation camps, parade performances, holiday events and summer camp come into play and they are not based around zumba..

It is my goal to combine my range of experiences in both Dance/Zumba and the arts with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic and intelligent teacher, and apply it all to Zappy Zebra Entertainment.  My hope is to provide your child with lifelong benefits in health and fitness while creating memorable experiences during one of our Zappy Zebra Programs.

 I look forward to meeting all of you at registration!
