    I am a Zumba enthusiast and well as a Zumba instructor. Over the last 5 years I have taken classes with most of the teachers in San Francisco and I can say with out a doubt Miriam is one of the very best in the city! She is something special. Her Salsa and Bachata are so good! (but so is everything else) She has a very easy teaching style. I see her effortlessly take students from a very simple step to something complex and wonderful in just a few minutes. Everyone leaves the class on a wonderful high. I can not recommend her enough. If you have a chance take her class, you will not be disappointed. San Francisco is lucky to have her in our Zumba community!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a wide range of experience in the creative, fitness and mentalh health field.

I like to provide you with a safe, effective and fun experience that challenges you enough to grow and achieve your goals, and it is easy to follow.

As  a Zumba isntructor, I am certified in several specialties and authorized to teach Zumba Kids (great for parties, small groups, schools), Zumba Toning, and Aqua Zumba.

I have been dancing and teaching latin dance for several years, and performed with dance groups in several countries.

I also offer dance/movement creative sessions aimed at developing body awareness and a deeper emotional connection with yourself and others. I work from a relational, client centered frame which means that my main goal is to support you in your journey through an enriching and growth oriented experience. 

How did you get started teaching?

Although as a Latinamerican person, I always enjoyed dancing, I started teaching many years ago while I lived in Africa. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with children of diverse cultural backgrounds in two continents at schools, summer camps, and after school programs providing arts and dance workshops; youth and adults in private and group classes in diverse organizations and settings across several countries; and with older adults with creative arts and movement.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone that is caring, professional and passionate about their work.

Someone that can go beyond just delivering a lesson, and takes into account the whole of you as a human when working and supporting you towards your goals.
