Petra’s formal dance training started at the Bernice Johnson dance school and continued with the Repertory Dance Company of East Harlem in NYC. Life happened in a major way and she packed on an extra 60+ pounds. In 2011 Petra embarked on a journey to reclaim her health, fitness and revive her passion for dance. She committed to healthy living and completed her Zumba Fitness Instructor certification. Today she uses Zumba to encourage others on their health & wellness journey.
