By day, Janean Benton is a manager at IBM, but on Saturday mornings, you’ll find her in front of a Zumba class. Wearing a baseball cap and Adidas high-tops, she burns through dances with crisp calls and contagious joy. She squeezes in three classes a week, on top of being a mom, wife, and fund-raiser for charitable causes, including Dance Out Hunger, an event she co-chairs each holiday season to fund local food banks. The 41-year-old also teaches wellness seminars and hosts Fashionably Fit, a charity event that ties fashion to fitness.
