|"One day I got
to my class, and I realized I'd left my regular aerobics
music at home. I looked in my bag, took out some salsa and
merengue tapes, popped them into the sound system, and
taught the first-ever Zumba® class. After a career as a
trainer and choreographer in Colombia, I decided to make the
big move to the United States. With only with my moves and
my passion, I sold all my belongings and moved to Miami in
search of the American Dream. I didn't speak a word of
English. I'm here to better myself and bring the Zumba® love
to the entire planet. I've made a challenging position for
myself as an instructor in a great work environment
surrounded by friends who have become like family to me!"
