Hello my name is Steph I was born and raised in Scarborough and now live in Guelph Ontario. I have been a Zumba instructor since April 2012. Shortly after  I became a licensed group fitness instructor and personal trainer. I am also licensed in Zumba Kids, Zumba Step, Zumba Core, Zumba Sentao and Strong Nation. 


I love being a group fitness instructor. It brings me great joy to see people smile and having fun while learning to love themselves, all while reaching  their health goals.

Becca Sumka

Hello! My name is Becca :) Zumba has been a part of my life for the past 10 years. It has been a major part of my weight loss transformation and fitness journey. Zumba brings so much joy to my life because it allows me to be myself and dance like no one is watching. 

I’m grateful for Shake it Off Studio and the instructors who teach there. Both Steph and Nive have inspired me to achieve my goal of becoming an instructor. I have been a ZIN member since January 2023. I’m grateful for the experience of getting on stage and seeing the smiling faces dancing with me. I look forward to dancing with you! 

Laura mcNeilly

Hi everyone! I’m Laura, and I’ve been hootin’ and hollerin’, laughing and shaking, and getting sweaty, silly, and sassy as a ZIN member since 2009. For me, Zumba is more than a fitness practice, it is a joy, pursuit, and one of my most cherished resources for well-being. When I’m not dancing at SIOS, I am working as a Psychotherapist, helping others find their own inner and outer resources for well-being. I’m thrilled to be sharing the dance floor with the Shake It Off Studio community. See you there!
