Vanessa was born and raised in Venezuela where dancing is a way of life. Vanessa discovered Zumba while going to college in Alabama and was hooked immediately. ‘It made me feel connected to my Hispanic Heritage and the energy that describes my native country.’ Almost 3 years ago she decided to become a Zumba Instructor. ‘It was the best decision I ever made. I wanted others to feel the freedom and the joy I felt when I went to a class.’ Today she teaches in several locations around Fort Collins and enjoys having the best job on earth. Her specialty is Salsa. When taking Vanessa’s class you can expect a high energy, fun, sassy, and very Latin workout.
