As a child I remember always being involved in a variety of sports and dance activities and fell in love with it.
Following my passion for dance at the age of 12 I applied to the National School of Dance in Sofia, but the competition was hard and I didn’t get a place. I remember being heartbroken, but never really abandoned dancing. Later in life, after I had just graduated from Sofia University and was looking forward to embark onto a career in education, a friend of mine who knew my passion for dancing dragged me to an audition that changed my life and career path for years to come. I was invited to become a member of a professional dance company which gave me an opportunity to travel and perform internationally, but most of all, it enabled me to do for living something I truly loved. I also did a course and became a certified group exercise instructor and started to teach aerobics and other group fitness classes. Whether it was in a class or on stage, this is when I felt most happy.
In 2008 I moved to the UK and brought my bags of passion for dance and fitness with me. I became a Qualified REPs Registered Exercise to Music Instructor and started to teach group exercise classes in variety fitness clubs.
There was a void… I missed dancing. Then one day I walked in to my first ever Zumba® class, as a student, and I was then I realised that I had found my dream!
I had found what I was looking for – an inspiring fusion of dance, fitness and Latin music. Zumba® perfectly combined my two passions and I was truly hooked. I jumped onto the first course to get a license to teach it myself and became an active member of Zumba Instructor Network. With Zumba® I gained a whole new passion for life and happiness!
Now I enjoy motivating others to party their way to pure happiness and a healthier and active lifestyle just like I have done. I feel also so lucky and privileged to have been invited to join the Fitness Vibe Team, I feel I have joined a team of like-minded people who share that same love for fitness, music and spirit of dance, and feel happy to share it with others and inspire them.
