Linda Cicero (L)
Born and raised in Trumbull, CT, Linda grew up loving to dance, but it wasn't until her late 20's that she was able to take her first official dance class (although MTV provided free lessons for years ;)). And after one spin on the dance floor, Linda knew that she found her soulmate in dance. Linda's training started in the ballroom where she danced Pro-Am for 5 years at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Norwalk. Together with her instructors, studio owner and World-Champion Dancer, Martin Goethche as well as Fred Astaire’s New England Professional Smooth Champion, Peter Hahn, Linda won 6 New England Regional competitions. Learning from Paul & Brian Herman from Double Up Dance Company, Linda is also trained in Hip-Hop.
She is also a licensed Zumba® instructor and a certified AFAA Group Fitness Instructor. Trained under Zumba® Master trainers Jani Roberts, Marcie Benavides, Tony Witt and Ann Saldi, Linda has earned licenses in Zumba®, Zumba® Step, Zumba® Gold and Zumba® Pro-Skills. She has been teaching for over 5 years and finds no greater joy than looking out into class and seeing a room filled with positive energy and smiles. She teaches dance and fitness classes in the Norwalk/Darien area. She lives in Norwalk with her mini-dachshund Jack who she proclaims is the cutest dog in the world. She believes there is no greater joy in the world than hitting play and dancing your troubles away.
