“As a physician who has had the pleasure of participating in Lizbeth's Zumba® classes for the past several years, I applaud her vision and initiative in creating dance therapy classes for people with movement challenges. Lizbeth brings her unbridled enthusiasm and joy to each class that she teaches. In addition, it’s clear that participants in her classes are getting real exercise and building group social skills as they move together in a supportive, joyful atmosphere. This is especially valuable for young people with disabilities: as pointed out in a 2012 study issued by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the benefits of exercise among children with disabilities may be even more important than for others, because they are at greater risk of being sedentary.
