Lisa Matthews

“If you’re moving, you’re doing it right.”

“If you’re moving, you’re doing it right.” Those encouraging words are how Lisa feels about Zumba. Lisa has a long history of dance and exercise. Lisa’s excellence in dance earned her a scholarship to the School of American Ballet, the official school of the New York City Ballet. Upon her return from New York, she became principal dancer of the Louisville Ballet Company.

After her dancing days, Lisa earned her 3rd degree blackbelt while raising a family. Lisa was looking for a new way to work out. Through this pursuit, she discovered a love for both martial arts and Zumba. Lisa earned her certification as a Zumba instructor in 2014 and as a Zumba Gold instructor in 2019. Lisa teaches martial arts at Blue Dragon Martial Arts and Zumba classes at Studio Z. Lisa invites everyone to find the same passion she has for Zumba and martial arts through Studio Z.
