“Hi and welcome to Zumba Zone!
My name is Federico Bedoya and I come all the way from Colombia, where Zumba began, to dance and have fun. In Colombia we love to party and we love to dance.
I was born and raised in Ibague, the capital of music in Colombia. I was a gym instructor for 10 years before coming to the UK to study. My family are all professional dancers so movement, music and rhythm are in my blood.
From an early age I performed in dance troupes and carnivals all over Colombia. But I also enjoy all forms of fitness. It truly is my passion.
Not only am I the first Colombian Zumba instructor in the UK since 2007, I used to work alongside the creators of Zumba….a class with me is like immersing yourself in the roots of Zumba!
The reason I love Zumba is simple: every class feels like a party. You’ll see what I mean. This is not a work-out. It is a great way of keeping fit, but the accent is on FUN!
If you have never been to South America, I would like to bring a slice of South America to you.
