Originally from Los Angles California where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership. In Los Angeles she worked in logistics for the 2nd largest school district in the nation for over 25 year. She relocated to Atlanta in 2010 and instantly she knew she wanted to do something that would allow her to give back to her newly adopted community. In October of 2010 she took her first Zumba fitness class and was instantly hooked and became a licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor the following month.
LaSonya has a passion for her dance and fitness community and makes it a point to host yearly events bringing the community, Zumba enthusiasts, Zumba instructors and international presenters from all over the world together. She hosts huge dance fitness parties with over 200 smiling faces and happy dancing feet celebrating life.
After almost losing her left foot in a car accident in 1996, she knew her life life was spared for a reason. As she dances through the pain of having ten screws and a plate in her left foot, she is reminded of her favorite book, The Purpose Driving Life by Rick Warren. The first sentence reads, “It’s Not About You.” This is how she lives her life and how she operates LL Dance and Fitness. It is not about her or the pain but about the individuals she can impact by Loving Life One Dance at a Time.
