Diana Ortiz – director
Becoming a Zumba instructor and a member of the Zumba family is one of the best decisions of my life. I love the feeling when I’m in a class listening loud Latin music and I see the participants smiling and enjoying, there is no better feeling than that.
Looking forward to see you in one of my classes.

About Our Team
Meet Our Instructors
My name is Alexis and I came from Venezuela. Music, particularly Latin rhythms, are a essential part of our culture. So when I decided to move abroad, I thought it was going to be extremely difficult for me to stay in touch with Latin music. As a health practitioner and fitness instructor, I struggled to find an activity that combines dance and Latin songs into a fitness program, and Zumba did it! When I moved here to Sydney almost three years ago (2012), I never thought that the Zumba program was going to be such an important part of my life as it is now. Encouraging people to exercise while smiling and having fun, and wanting to come back to a Zumba class week after week, interacting with so many participants with different backgorunds and fitness levels, and building new and strong friendships with some participants and other Zumba instructors, have made my journey as a Zumba instructor an amazing experience so far. Please join us in one of our classes to ‘party into shape’.
Hi my name is Alfonso and I am from Caracas, Venezuela. I became a certified Zumba instructor in 2011 and have been teaching since then. I love dancing and I love teaching Zumba. Come and try one of my classes!!!
Anderson Rodrigues Goncalves
My name is Anderson, but can call me just Andy, I’m from Brazil and I have been teaching Zumba since 2013. I moved to Australia in June/16 and since then I’m trying meet people and insert me in the Zumba’s World here.
Diana Ortiz Diaz
My name is Diana and I’m originally from Venezuela, as a typical Venezuelan or Latin American I have always been surrounded by music specially Merengue and Salsa, I think I learnt to dance before I learnt to talk.
I have been living in beautiful Sydney since 2007 and I absolutely love the city, I think is the best city in the world!!! I started teaching Zumba in April 2010.
Zumba is part of a career change, my background is from corporate. I worked in big multinational companies up to the point when I decided I needed a change for something more meaningful and that’s how I became a Zumba instructor. Becoming a Zumba instructor and a member of the Zumba family is one of the best decisions of my life. I love the feeling when I’m in a class listening loud Latin music and I see the participants smiling and enjoying, there is no better feeling than that.
I have a Certificate III and IV in Fitness.
Registered with Fitness Australia #048445
Looking forward to seeing you in one of my classes!!!!
Gilson Joy Santos
I am from Brazil and I love music, whether playing an instrument, composing, singing or dancing. When I dance, I travel to another dimension. For 12 years I have been working exclusively with music giving Guitar and keyboard lessons, Ballroom Dance, Brazilian Rhythms, Zumba, Choreographies and as a Personal Dancer.
I have travelled through more than twenty countries dancing and learning about dance, but my great love is Zumba.
I love teaching Zumba and seeing the smiles on my students’ faces is my greatest joy.
People who dance are happier.
Try one of my classes and let’s have fun together!
The Zumba Specialties are:
Those who want to party, but put extra emphasis on toning and sculpting to define those muscles!
How It Works
The challenge of adding resistance by using Zumba® Toning Sticks (or light weights), helps you focus on specific muscle groups, so you (and your muscles) stay engaged!
Lightweight maraca-like Toning Sticks enhances sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning target zones, including arms, core and lower body.
STRONG by Zumba™ is a high intensity interval training workout driven by the science of Synced Music Motivation. Unlike all other workouts, we don’t just create moves to a playlist. Instead, we craft and reverse engineer the songs to match every move, driving the intensity in a challenging progression that provides a total body workout. The result is a group fitness experience unlike any other.
This class will push you past your limits to help you reach your fitness goals faster. Using your own body weight, you will gain muscular endurance, tone, and definition, and you will experience an increased afterburn.
Known as “the pool party,” this therapeutic workout combines contagious world rhythms, but adapts them to use the water’s resistance for a safe and extremely effective aquatic workout.
Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, the Aqua Zumba class blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
Recently launched, The Zumba Sentao™ workout takes the thrill of the fitness-party and partners it with explosive, chair-based choreography to strengthen, balance and stabilize your core, and step up your cardio workout in a whole new way.
Zumba® Fitness – When participants see a Zumba class in action, they can’t wait to give it a try. Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before participants know it, they’re getting fit and their energy levels are soaring!
There’s no other fitness class like a Zumba Fitness-Party. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.
Zumba® Kids is a high-energy fitness-party, designed exclusively for kids (ages 4-11). Each class is packed with specially choreographed, kid friendly routines and all the music kids love, like hip-hop, reggaeton, cumbia and more.
Zumba® Kids classes are usually split into two main groups. Zumba® kids Jr. classes are for kids aged 4- 6 years old while Zumba® kids is for kids 7- 11 years old.
The goal is to develop a healthy lifestyle and to incorporate fitness as a natural part of children’s lives, not just as a class they attend once a week. While exercise is a very important part of childhood development, Zumba® Kids also considers other aspects (see below).
Benefits of ZUMBA® Kids:
Classes are supportive, non-competitive and there are no costumes or make-up required!
It’s a total blast!
Zumba Gold is a special class designed for the active adult population or the true beginner (deconditioned) participant. A Zumba Gold class, is very conscious of people’s possible physical limitations.
The steps are generally simpler than in a normal Zumba class, more repetitions, less fancy crossings of the legs and hips. It potentially caters for people who may be out of shape, or maybe had a hip replacement, past injuries, delicate joints and knees, overweight or just want an easier start.
Zumba Gold is all about safety.
However, participating is a Zumba Gold class, one still moves, sweats and SMILES. It’s still lots of fun and a good work out. It’s really good for beginners and for all those concerned with “not being able to get the steps” Instructors trained in Zumba Gold are taught about the anatomical, physiological, and psychological needs specific to these populations. The course even includes a Zumba chair workout.
While Zumba Basic is designed to teach the general exercising population, Zumba Gold is specifically designed to teach the active older adult.

“Have joined your classes 3 Saturdays since I discovered Zumba and I really love your positive outlook & energy.
At first I got a bit anxious seeing you doing the Latin moves so smoothly, but your easy & step by step approach made it very easy to copy/ past and join in (although not in anyway as smooth yet ;-)
I like the fact that you put a bit of fun, play and attitude in your routines, and make me leave with a smile.
Particularly your nice words at the end are very good way to close the class.”
