Since she was a young girl, Joanne wanted to be a ballroom dancer. She was born with Caudal Regression Syndrome, where she could not stand on her webbed legs. The fact that she has never walked did not deter her from her goal. Dancing is her passion especially since she discovered Zumba® Fitness. Today she is a Zumba instructor and leads experiences for children and families at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas. Watch Zumba co-founder Beto Perez leading a class at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Florida.
