My name is Sheree (Shur-ee) James and fitness has been a part of my life since forever! I grew-up playing 3 sports and ended-up a 2x NAIA Collegiate Softball All-American Athlete. I've always loved dancing but it never fit into my tight schedule. I started dancing consistently for fun in college and after receiving a BA in Spanish and in Secondary Education from Pacific Lutheran University, in Tacoma, Washington, I went on to teach High School Spanish before getting married and having kids. I have dabbled in a few of my interests over the the past 20 years but found my true passion after discovering a Zumba class back in 2009.I was licensed 3 months later and have been teaching since. I ran my own fitness biz from 2010-2015 where I led Zumba, Cardio Dance Party, Barre, and Urban Striptease Aerobics. I have since taught at multiple gyms and online. In 2019, my family and I moved from Redmond, Washington (near Seattle), to Redondo Beach, California. I spent all of 2021 going to school to become an Esthetician. In November of 2021 I discovered a Groov3 class and knew almost immediately this would be my next adventure! I believe my love of 90's hip-hop, hip-hop dance, and my high energy are a perfect fit for this format! I can't wait to get going!
