Some of the reviews of Zumba Gold for Special Needs

Kirstie holds Zumba sessions at a club I run for adults aged between 18-30...

all of whom have Learning and physical difficulties.

Kirstie is the first person to ever run a sitdown session so that it is inclusive for all of our members regardless of ability. This promotes equality within the group.

The music is modern and up-to-date and therefore more enjoyable by the group and Kirstie works at the members pace.

Her Zumba sessions are very popular within all of the groups run by South Wilts Mencap, she regularly attends fundays as well. One evening a young man, who can be challenging, was distressed, Kirstie spoke kindly to him, she asked him to help her run the session at the front with her, needless to say his mood instantly improved. She is a natural with those with learning difficulties, she has the ability to not treat them as different.

She is Extremely popular with members of all ages and she is friendly, considerate and patient. She's definitely not money orientated, you can see she thoroughly enjoys what she does. 

She is professional and provides an excellent, value for money service.

I can not recommend her highly enough she is a pleasure to have at club nights. 

Sue - 4&More Club, South Wilts Mencap

Kirstie comes in to our group for adults who have sustained a brain injury...

once a month to do a seated class. She is great at ensuring that everyone is able to participate in the session, whatever their abilities. She offers alternatives for anyone not able to carry out a certain movement and encourages those who may be a little reticent.

Everyone looks forward to the session and with the music, movements and Kirstie's energy you cannot help but feel upbeat afterwards.
