Dancing has been a historical tradition since our ancestors, as a way to communicate feelings, desires etc. In recent years, social dance has proved it’s long lasting presence in our lives. It is in our media, our music and day to day social functions. It isn’t usually taught parent-to-child so people are seeking schools where they can learn to dance, as it is proven that if you dance since early childhood you will be more open to relations with the exterior world. Today, more people are into dance through Zumba Fitness, a Latin inspired fitness class using fun and dance based choreography. It is an aerobic cardio workout but uses every muscle including the brain, it is meant to feel like a party rather than a boring exercise. Zumba classes are growing faster with more than 15 million weekly participants around the word, all of them enjoying a healthy and happy life.
My name is Katia Morrison, or ZUMBALATIA, a Zumba® Fitness Instructor ZIN Member, from Peru in South America. I graduated as an Industrial Relations officer and worked for a diverse community background for more than 14 years in Peru and Australia. With Zumba I’m going to teach you how to feel the Latin music and burn calories at the same time my gorgeous Zumbera just shaking what mama gave you!!!!
I have been dancing since I was 8 years old, performing national traditional songs from Peru. My country is famous around the world for the amazing Machu Picchu ruins, Inca Empire history, more than 120 regional dance styles from the Coast, Mountain and Tropical forest, the delicious Pisco Sour beautiful spirit and more. As part of our culture I have learnt to shake our rhythms before walking, dancing has always been part of our culture and brings our community together (Fiesta). At the age of 15 I was involved in Punk, Indi-Alternative, Pop, Salsa, Merengue, Samba, Rock and different rhythms. I believe that dance gives you happiness, positivity, energy and a healthy and cheerful life. I have been a Zumba® Fitness instructor for over 3 years teaching Zumba classes for my local community and today I hold my own classes at 676 Old Cleveland Road Cam Hill School of Arts 4152 Just remember everyone of us has music in our veins, you just have to let it out !!!
