Hi my name is Anna Wingo! I moved up to St Louis from the great state of Alabama to get my Masters in Social Work! I now spend my days working with teens as an Adolescent Counselor! Back in 2010, looking for something to shake up my routine, I found a Zumba class at my gym and loved it! Zumba had helped me get back into shape and build my confidence! I began teaching Zumba in 2012 to share my great experience with others and help people find their own confidence! I am an open person and would love to get to know all of my students, so make sure to contact me if you have any questions!!
