Beto PerezCreator of Zumba® Fitness
Beto began as a fitness instructor in his home city of Cali, Colombia. One day he arrived at class and realized he had left his regular aerobics music at home. Beto looked in his bag, took out some salsa and merengue tapes, popped them into the sound system, and taught the first-ever Zumba® class. After a career as a trainer and choreographer in Colombia, Beto decided to make the big move to the United States. With only his moves and his passion, Beto sold all his belongings and moved to Miami in search of the American Dream.
