About Hector:

Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1978. Lived in the Island for 31 years until I moved to Herndon, Virginia, where I currently reside.


As Latino, I love music, dance, and those rhythms that make Zumba® what it is. After moving to Virginia, I had the opportunity to attend a Zumba® Master class to raise awareness for autism and cancer. That event changed my life. I though, what could Zumba® do for me, and what could I achieve with Zumba® in my life. I was so inspired by those Instructors that I started attending Zumba® classes 5 times a week for 2 years. I learned to love Zumba® because it made me feel alive.


Today, I'm a Zumba® Instructor. People reach out to me for health and personal advice, which makes me humble. I have helped other Zumba® Instructors with choreographies and routines because it makes me happy. This is a new area for me, helping people in and out of the studio. I love the way it makes me feel.

 

Often people think Zumba® is a difficult class, but I assure you it is not. Zumba® has given me the opportunity of my life; Inspire other the way I was inspired. 


"You don't have to be an avid dancer to do Zumba®", come join me and you'll definitely have a good time dancing, laughing and most of all getting FIT... See you real soon.

 

Live, Love, Zumba®!!!!!
