Ivonne Obando

ivonne obandoHola! My name is Ivonne, and I am from Colombia. I love dancing and listening to salsa, rock, pop, and jazz music. I grew up in a house where there was always music! Music when we cooked, music when we did chores, music when we were eating, and of course, music when there were parties. Then I moved to the US and that passion for music came with me. However, I discovered that I enjoyed sharing it with the people I met in this wonderful country. Then I discovered Zumba Fitness and was hooked! I love teaching my Zumba classes because I can share my passion while helping people to enjoy themselves, stay active and healthy.
