About Me

My name is Maria (Majo) Manson. I am originally from Argentina, but have been living in North Carolina for the past eleven years. Dancing has been a passion for me for as long as I can remember.
 I first tried Zumba in 2010 and I immediately felt in love with this fitness program. I got my Zumba license in March of 2012 after completing the Basic 1 with Beto Perez, the creator of Zumba, who I completely admire for giving us (Instructors) the possibility to teach our students a fun way to get in shape and burn A LOT of calories. 
I love and enjoy the Zumba Fitness® program because it fuses dance with good music and it's a great outlet to exercise while having fun. It is designed for ALL ages, sizes, and fitness levels. It is fun, different, effective, and not limited to any specific group of people.
