Fit Folks: Fiona Stewart, 36

I have been dancing with the Austin Samba School since April. We will be dancing at the Central Market Day of the Dead parade later this month.

I have always loved dancing and did calisthenics (a type of dance from southern Australia where I grew up) for 12 years as a child and into my early 20s. As an adult, my dancing had been limited to Zumba and salsa aerobics classes, which I have been doing for about eight years.

I have two small children and was looking for an outlet to perform that we could all be involved with.

It's been a great way to get into a friendly community where everyone is a volunteer, and my husband and kids love going to the shows.

We're looking for Central Texans who keep fit with interesting activities. Tell us — in 100 words or fewer — about yours. If you have a photograph, include that as well. Send your name, age and contact information to Pam LeBlanc, Austin American-Statesman, 305 S. Congress Ave., Austin TX 78704 or e-mail it to pleblanc@statesman.com.
