Xochitl decided to become a dance fitness instructor after experiencing an allergic reaction that was thought to be Covid 19. She got sick the day before California went into quarantine 2020. As soon as she got better she realized her quick recovery was due to her dancing and healthy lifestyle. 
Since then, Xochitl has accuired many different dance fitness certifications (certificates posted on the Zumba Hours page) with a passion to spread the joy that keeps her alive and well everyday. All the while, continuing her ballroom dance education and competing as an Amatuer, winning multiple awards. She is now in teacher training and offers ballroom lessons at competitive prices.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click here to edit your description

What primary services do you offer?

Zumba, Zumba Kidz, Zumbini, Chi Chi Fit, Dance Fitness, and  Partner Dances: Salsa, Lindy Hop, Argentine Tango, Rumba, Swing and Cha Cha. We do offer classes virtually. 
Xochitl is an affiliate for 1st Phorm Supplements. Her link helps pay for the show. 
We offer new and used dance and fitness attire other related items in The BABL Store and the websites list.

How can you offer such low prices?

I am still competing as an Amatuer until the end of the year. I do not have my NDCA certifications. However, you do not need to be certified to teach dance. I am currently in teacher training to develop teaching and higher level dance skills at Spotlight school for dance teachers. As soon as I get certified for ballroom my prices will go up but because I am a competitive dancer I will always have competitive prices (wink). So, get it on your calendar soon!
As for Zumba, Chi Chi and dance fitness, I have been teaching since 2020 and offer competitive prices with other studios that take monthly or membership payments, sometimes as high as $64/mo for 1 class a week. 
Why the prices vary depending on the teacher:
Lessons with the star Instructors, Dan Lee Tran and Wesley Bradshaw vary. Dan is independent and decides his own prices. Most independent instructors accept gifts such as a meal or snacks, rides etc. in exchange for a lower price. They make most of their money in competitions and showcases. I would say it is customary to offer a coffee and definitely give a gift for any special occasion. You can negotiate a lower price if you purchase a large sum of lessons at once. 
Wesley works with Arthur Murray and is a highly skilled dancer with a dance degree. He has been pro since he was 12 years old. Being from another country, he prefers working under the security of a franchise and his sponsors. Arthur Murray prices are the same for all of the teachers regardless of skill, education or background and it is expensive. It is also customary to give them gifts.

Are you certified, permitted and licensed?

Yes, I am fully certified for Zumba, Chi Chi Fit and Dance fitness. You can view all of my dance fitness certifications in the Gallery.  I am also a certified Full Bronze dancer with Arthur Murray. My Zumba classes in the park are fully permitted and I am licensed to use all of my music. 
I am not NDCA certified for Ballroom as of yet. I am currently in teacher training at Spotlight.

Will Xochitl and Wesley be performing soon?

As dancers we are always performing. Wesley has multiple performances a year. You can check him out on Instagram for updates. 
Xochitl is currently working on a theatre show and some things for television and film. At this point in her career she is still in the beginning stages. The pandemic has put a halt on all of her projects but she hasn't given up. 
The two can only perform together in Arther Murray Showcases and some of their free dance parties. It isn't definite that they will be doing "outside competitions" together again. However, Xochitl is still entering other competitions around America in her age group as a soloist and with her new instructor Dan Lee Tran. 
Xochitl is currently a member of the Spirits In Motion Dance Company. They will have a tour of performances starting in April 2022.

Who have Wesley and Xochitl trained with?

Wesley Bradshaw has had many coaches, dance directors and teachers in Contemporary Dance that helped him win multiple World Championships as a Professional. In Ballroom specifically, he was trained by some of Arthur Murray's biggest names.
In Xochitl's early years, she trained in Ballet Folkorico with Monica Zuniga. She's had many teachers in jazz, modern, ballet, tap and hip hop. In ballroom, Xochitl started competitive career with Wesley Bradshaw and trained shortly with Bobby Gonzalez an Arthur Murray coach and judge. As an Arthur Murray student she was able to get coaching with the same judges that trained Wesley such as Tonia Kosovich. She is currently in teacher training with Gwen Burton, the founder of Spotlight Ballroom in Sacramento. She is furthuring her training with Dan Lee Tran, a two time Professional World Champion who has trained multiple award winning Amatuers almost every year. They also compete ProAm together.
Our newest addition, Dan Lee Tran, trained at Fred Estaire dance studio where he became a licensed teacher. He went on to teach independently and studied an online teachers course. Having many friends in ballroom, Dan has the opportunity to work and train with some of the world's biggest names and world dance champions in the business such as Karina Smirnoff.
