Hello, my name is LaToya Bufford and I love teaching Zumba. My mother Linda Taylor introduced me to Zumba in 2009 and I have been hooked ever since! In addition to being a Zumba instructor, I have also taken on the role of a Zumba Jammer. Zumba Jammers are choreography experts chosen by the Zumba Fitness company to lead "ZIN Jam Sessions" for other Zumba instructors. As a busy wife and mother of 4, Zumba gives me the chance to express myself, release stress, dance and enjoy great music all at the same time! I love teaching Zumba because it's so much fun. Come and join the Zumba Party with me and you'll see what I mean. No dance experience is required. Just move your body and follow my lead!



 

 

 

A Personal Letter From Beto Perez - Zumba Fitness Creator

In 1994 in the big capital city of Colombia, Bogota, where I moved to from a smaller city, Cali. I had the unbelievable opportunity to go to my first aerobics convention, where the fitness celebrity Pepper Von was presenting. I had the privilege to take one of his classes, and in the middle of his session he invited me and my best friend Walter to come on stage with him. I couldn't even sleep that night; I was full of joy and felt privileged for the opportunity.

Two days later, there was a meeting for some of the instructors, where Pepper Von was giving a speech about fitness and motivation. After a while Pepper Von asked if anybody had a question. I raised my hand and asked, while a translator helped me, and aked " if I have an idea about a different type of fitness class, what do I have to do to become a respectful , wellknown instructor like you, and make people believe in my fitness program? Pepper's answer was exactly what I was doing at the time and ensured me that I was going in right path. He said : who perseveres and is patient will make if far in life, and then the right moment will come in the right place" At the end of the speech, Pepper Von signed his post card to each one of the participants.

A lot of years went by, and I kept my thoughts and Peppers' advice always in me. I believed in myself as an instructor and in my program. Now, 14 years later after Pepper Von's speech, I see the results and the success reflected on Zumba Fitness.

For that reason, I invited Pepper Von to the 2011 convention in Orlando, Florida. And we worked together in a video and I introduced him to all my student/instructors as my mentor and inspiration. I believe it is important that everyone knows, that we all learn from each other and have a mentor who we learn a lot from, and in my case this mentor was Mr. Pepper Von. Many Thanks, from the bottom of my heart. Beto Perez, Zumba Fitness Creator.
