Welcome to my Dance / Fitness Journey;
Born in New York City , raised in Colombia. I started dance at the age of three at the Ana Maria Academy in Pereira, Colombia, always very captivated for the arts I went upon Joining the Risaralda Music Conservatory for Piano & Folklore Dance .
As as I continue to discover my passion for dance, my family moved to Miami and I began extending my training at the Martha Marh School of Ballet while doing other types of dance such as Jazz and Contemporary with Anna Bolt at Nautilus Middle School . When it came to High School I auditioned and got accepted into the Magnet dance program at MKSH directed by Bernadette Pierre. I was then introduced to Modern Technique such as Graham , Limon & Horton.
Attended New World School of the Arts College where I performed and expanded my dance curriculum, trained with the best in the industry.
Meanwhile In 2007 I got licensed to teach Zumba® and engaged into teaching my first group Fitness classes.
Always moving forward I embarked myself into opening my own first Dance & Fitness Studio at Doral, Fl. There I taught classical ballet to young girls as well as Fitness classes for Adults.
Teaching adults was another task I was willing to perfect , I later got licensed to teach Toning, Aqua Zumba, Zumba kIds , Step , Sentao and the Latest Strong by Zumba.
Just the way a dancer is trained I decided to give a try to other modalities such as Bokwa®, Xco Latin Workout by Jackie & Piloxing®to attract other clients to my studio.
Being an owner and Full-time Istructor for Five years taught me a lot and opened great opportunities for me .
In 2015 I began to travel doing International Events and Master classes showcasing Fitnes programs. I have participated in music videos with Beto perez in the “Yo que tu “ Music artist
Rey el Ingeniero, “Make Love” with Aisha & “Heart to the beat “ with Mara Prada.
Zumba Model for 2104 Winter Collection, and for the first Zumba wear catalog in 2015’s Convention.
I love anything that challenges me out of my comfort zone and I like to transmits that in each and one of my classes.
So if you read until the end I expect to see you in one of my classes.
Cant wait till we meet Dance and Have fun the best way possible ZUMBA® Baby!
