Janice Meets Zumba Founder, Beto Perez
Posted by ZumbaContraCosta on July 25, 2009
When Beto Perez comes out to center stage to teach over 100 people, he does not say a word! Instead, the music plays and the people begin to dance and shout for joy. His magnetism is created by not only his talent, but also his enthusiasm, warmth and sense of humor. On July 18th I attended one such Master Zumba Instructor Certification led by this one-man force, Beto (short for Alberto) Perez, founder of Zumba Fitness.
In addition to learning new Zumba routines, I learned the nuances between several Latin rhythms, including Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, & Reggaeton.
I’m working hard to bring more Zumba classes to Contra Costa so stay tuned.
Did you know that it was Plato in 600 B.C. who said, “lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. ”
So get moving, whether you bike, hike, climb, or dance…keep moving.
Why is Zumba taking off like the Santa Ana wild fires? Because the routines are simple and easy to follow, geared for movement enthusiasts of all levels. Music from all over the world is incorporated so that classes are always fun, and new music is released often so that classes do not become redundant or stale.
Remember, if you can walk, you can dance! Keep moving!
