Debby's Story

Debby is a lover of dance and movement. She does not have formal dance training but has learned by self teaching, watching and learning from others as well as in her fitness training. She comes from a lifetime career in Nursing which helps tremendously in overall awareness of the human body and safety through movement.

Debby danced with her children in a Community based dance collective where they performed on stage and even on the beach! After discovering Zumba in 2008, she was transformed.  

Licensed in 2011 to teach Zumba, Zumba Gold and Toning in both. Debby taught at Studio Fit in Maine until moving to Oregon 8 years ago, moving from Portland to Portland!  Of course the first thing she did was find a Zumba class! She has been teaching for the community parks for the past 7 years as well as at  several other fitness studios, gyms and dance studios. 

Debby has extensive and very diverse experience. She has taught  seated Zumba Gold classes for independent living facilities and rehab centers, she started a family and staff class at Shriners Hospital and has also volunteered for multiple  fundraisers  including “Party in Pink” for breast cancer research.  

She is an avid participant in continuing education opportunities through Zumba and LaBlast.  Debby Dodson- "I believe that dance is for all ages and every “body". I am a lifetime learner and believe that my journey to health and healing through dance can be a motivation and inspiration to others! Joyful movement encouraged  and no experience necessary. I look forward to dancing with you soon!
