About Me

I have to start by saying that dancing has always been my PASSION. You can ask anyone who knows me to tell you something about me and they would say "Rachel? She loves to dance!" 

Born and raised in New Jersey, but consider myself Peruvian. Both of my parents are from there. Any family photos or videos you see, there I am, DANCING. 

As a child I took Ballet, Jazz, and Tap classes. As an adult, I have taken Ballroom, Belly Dance, Argentine Tango, and Brazilian Samba classes. 

I won't say I am a professional dancer, but I do dance with my heart and soul. You can say I started dancing in my mother's womb. 

ZUMBA Fitness has definitely changed my life. I bought the ZUMBA VHS set back in 2001 and I thought how gym classes would be so much more fun if they would have an International Music Dance class. I am so happy that Beto Perez, creator of ZUMBA Fitness, fulfilled his dream and mine by creating ZUMBA Fitness! I took my first LIVE ZUMBA class in 2007 and I just LOVED IT. 

 I have lost over 50 pounds and the inches have just melted away. One of the things I love about teaching ZUMBA is that although we all follow a basic formula, we each can show our own style and add our own flavor, therefore ZUMBA is truly for EVERYONE. 

 There is a class for every person, every taste, and every level. I can honestly say that I am doing what I was called to do. Not only am I able to do what I love as my job, but the ZUMBA family is truly the best working colleagues anyone could ask for. 

I have seen changes in my students. My own mom, who for years has had problems with her knee and she went from doing 1 minute from a song to my entire class. I have another student who tried my class and loved it, she said she has two left feet and not for nothing, but she did...:-) In just 6 classes she took, she was able to learn to dance and is always so excited to come to my class. 

Like these two stories I have a few more, but just wanted to share with you what a great satisfaction it is for me to see how by teaching something I truly enjoy, I am also helping so many other people including those I love dearly. One of my students told me "Rachel, you are deceitful, your moves are so easy to follow, graceful and smooth, yet we come out of your class sweating and feeling like we just had the workout of our lives!" 

ZUMBA HAS DEFINITELY UNITED THE WORLD AND CHANGED SO MANY LIVES!!! Come join me and you'll see what I mean.....We will have a BLAST!
