MEET BETO PEREZ
Beto Perez, of Colombia (South America) is the creator, founder of Zumba®, and director of the national Zumba Master Trainer Team. He is a professional dancer and the former choreographer for Shakira and other high profile celebrities.
Zumba is Colombian slang meaning to move fast and have fun. The aerobics workout is famous for its Latin-inspired dance steps - Salsa, Merengue, Flamenco, Calypso, Soca, Cha cha and Samba.
Zumba's success certainly stems from its Latin roots, but nowadays Perez is mixing it up. In his 2008 video series and in your current Zumba classes, you'll hear a little of country music, funk, and rock and roll, Hip-Hop (of course you'll still hear your favorite Latin music). Adding a variety of world influences, including Indian harmonies, Latin beats and the thick bass of African Reggaetone to the mix, offers something for everyone.
