Staff > Karen McManus


Karen became a Zumba instructor in August of 2014 to be able to participate in Zumbathons and fundraisers for those in need. Because of her love of Zumba and giving back, she is known to drive hundreds of miles to Zumbathons from state to state and sometimes in the same day just to participate in a good cause. Since then, her ability and passion has lead her to teaching, and it has truly become her happy place. 


Karen educates herself by attending the annual Zumba convention, and Zumba jams monthly. She loves being a student and wants to learn and grow as an instructor as much as possible so she can bring her knowledge to class. In addition to teaching at Avalon, Karen is also featured on an annual dance and fitness cruise where she leads an Aqua Zumba class in addition to traditional Zumba.

Karen's smile, contagious energy, humor, and love of teaching makes every class feel like a party. All fitness levels are welcome, and you are guaranteed to leave sweaty and feeling amazing!

Karen is licensed in: B1, B2, Aqua Zumba, Proskills, as well as certified in Mixxed Fit and CPR. She was voted #2 in the Best of Boston AList


Karen teaches at Avalon on Mondays at 7PM and Wednesdays at 7:15pm!
