Zumba® Fitness is a Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music and contagious steps to form a “fitness-party” that is downright addictive.
It combines fast and slower paced worldwide rhythms with easy to follow moves designed to burn fat, increase your fitness levels, tone and sculpt your body, and all the while feel like you’re having a blast!
Janice trained in dance from the age of 4 until 20. Her passion in life is music and she has been lucky enough to work over the years as a lead singer and dancer in many professional shows.
She has always had a keen interest in keeping fit for her work and has been a regular member of a gym and fitness classes for many years. Quite a few of her fellow class members at her local gym had asked her why she didn’t teach (particularly salsa aerobics) but when she found the Zumba® program she knew she had found her perfect match!

How It Started
As a fitness instructor from Colombia, Beto Perez’s life took an unexpected turn one fateful day in the mid-’90s when he darted off to teach an aerobics class and forgot his traditional aerobics music. He improvised using his own mix of music from tapes he had in his backpack (salsa and merengue music he grew up with).
Spontaneously he created a new kind of dance-fitness, one that focused on letting the music move you (instead of counting reps over the music). Energy electrified the room; people couldn’t stop smiling. His class loved it! And on that day, a revolutionary new fitness concept was born – the Zumba® Fitness-Party.
Fast forward to today and Zumba® Fitness has developed into a worldwide phenomenon, being taught in gyms and studios all over the world to millions of Zumba® enthusiasts all ready to ditch the workout and join the party!
