About Me

Born and raised in Venezuela, Samuel came to New York City 11 years ago to set new roots. One morning in October of 2007, Samuel’s life as he knew it changed forever. While watching a segment of The Today Show, Samuel got his first glimpse of the new fitness phenomenon, Zumba Fitness. Beto Perez, Gina Grant and Tanya Beardsley were demonstrating a salsa/reggaeton routine with such passion and excitement that at that very instance he jumped out of the couch and said to himself "That's what I want to do". Samuel quickly signed up for several Zumba Instructor Trainings and with a lot of hard work and dedication he started teaching in May 2008. Three years later, he now teaches Zumba Fitness at several locations in New York City, such as the world renowned AILEY EXTENSION ( An extension of The Alvin Ailey Foundation ) and travels around the world presenting Zumba Fitness Master classes and Jam Sessions. Most recently he was selected to become a Zumba Jammer in October of 2010 and now travels to present special choreography sessions for other Zumba Fitness Instructors. Also to his credit, Samuel has been featured in several newspaper articles and on New York’s affiliate Fox Five News, ABC 7 Eyewitness News and "E-News on E-Entertainment ". However, his most proudest achievement as a Zumba Fitness Instructor was to raise over $33,000 for breast cancer awareness, over the last four consecutive years for the Susan Komen Greater NYC Foundation by holding a Zumba Fitness Master Class Fundraiser at several NYC venues.
