About Me


About Me


Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela! I discovered Zumba® Fitness when I moved to the USA and I was missing home and my entire culture. In 2006, there was a training for Zumba® and I decided to go. There were no classes in my area (Orlando, FL) and I always loved to dance but, more than that: I LOVED TO EXERCISE! After the instructor training, my life changed. I was studying Audio, Video and Graphic Design and I knew the only thing I wanted to do is: make people move! After finishing my BFA Degree I decided to go after all the fitness certifications to make me a better instructor. I have AFAA Group Ex Certification, NASM Womens Health and Nutrition, ACE Personal Training and many other specialties. I'm also licensed in all Zumba® Programs. To me, fitness is essential for anyone's life and I LOVE to make people smile and move! It's a lifestyle.

Meli was selected to be an official Zumba® Jammer (ZJ) to hold JAM sessions
nationwide and around the world. ZIN  Jam Sessions are open exclusively to current ZIN members. You will be spending quality time with other ZIN members and obtain competitive edge and help you become more successful.

Zumba® Fitness Convention Presenter

In 2014, I was selected by Zumba® Fitness to present at the annual Zumba® Convention with a new flavor and rhythms: LATINTRONIKA! LatinTronika is the evolution of Latin Rhythms mixed with Electronic Music. We have 5 different rhythms: Tribal Guarachero, Latin Hou
se, Digital Cumbia, Nortec and Tango Electronico. Since then, I have presented multiple ZIN JAM Sessions and a tribute to Venezuela called Venezuelan Bochinche.
