Patty Perry and me Maria Gonzalez are from Latin America. We grew up in a family and community where everybody dances; especially Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia and Reggaeton, which are the basics of Zumba. Patty has been teaching Zumba Gold and Zumba Fitness for the last 6 years in the UK, and I have been teaching Zumba fitness and Zumba Gold for about 10 years to different age groups. Our passion for dancing and teaching encouraged us to become Zumba instructors, we both hold a qualification in Exercise to Music (ETM). I also hold a qualification in Zumba toning Aqua Zumba, and a qualification in Level 3 Mat Pilates.
Patty and I love teaching Zumba not just because it is fun, also because Zumba is love and freedom. Our aim is to inspire people, and to encourage them to become fitter and happier by dancing Latin as well as world and international music and flavours, creating the right combination that will help you burn calories, tone up, increase your endurance and shape your body.
Patty runs Zumba Gold and Zumba fitness classes online (hoping to resume with the face to face classes in September).
I run Zumba Gold, Zumba Fitness, Mat Pilates and Seated Pilates classes face to face and some online, as well as private Pilates classes.
We look forward to seeing you at class!
