In the past few months I have realized that keeping up this website with last minute updates has been very hard for me as Facebook is my go-to way to get messages out. Please visit my Facebook page at to friend me and I will add you to my Zumba with Melissa page! Or simply search Zumba with Melissa Vanzant to request to join the group without having to add me as a friend.


Class Updates this week

Just a reminder that our normal Thursday class is cancelled this week due to scheduling conflicts at Mills Lawn.

Saturday's normal class will also be cancelled and in place there will be a Zumbathon to support the Yellow Springs High School class of 2015 and will be held at the High School from 11am-1pm. The cost is only $5 and 100% of the proceeds benefit the class of 2015!

Monthly Charity Drive

Posted on November 5, 2013 at 3:10 PM Comments comments (0)

I am excited that today marks the first day of our monthly charity drive. Beginning the first Tuesday of each month we will collect items for the Yellow Springs Food Pantry ran by the Methodist Church in town. I will collect items during the week after the first Tuesday. There will be a collection bin at the sign in table. For every item you bring, fill out a slip of paper with you name and phone number. At the end of the week, I will draw one name and that person will win a month's worth of free class passes (12 total). If you wish to give monetarily, I will only accept checks made out to Yellow Springs Methodist Church with “food pantry” in the memo. For every dollar, you will get an entry as well.
