Colombian-Born L.A. Zumba Dance Teacher Dennis Guzman Will Reappear April 14 to Perform on Mundo Fox's 'Viva: I Want to be Where the Dance Is'
by BWW News Desk - Apr 13, 2014

Viewers tuning in to watch Zumba instructor, Dennis Guzman, perform on the Zumba fitness segment of the Los Angeles Mundo Fox community news show, "Viva" (Channel 22), Mon., April 14 at 8 a.m., will be watching this Colombian-born American fulfill his passion to celebrate the music and dance of his culture. Guzman, who first danced on the show when it aired March 24, has developed a strong following since arriving on the L.A. dance scene two years ago from New York. 'I want to be where The Dance is,' said Guzman. 'New York is a Dance Capitol. It's very soulful. L.A. is the flip side with its focus on the commercial.' A dancer since he could walk, Guzman grew up in New York where he trained in hip-hop, modern and jazz before being hired by Carnival Cruise Lines to perform in their extravaganza revues. Four years, five contracts and 10 shows later, he was ready for a change of pace. When he experienced his first Zumba class in L.A., Guzman knew he had come home: 'I said, 'OMG. This is an exercise invented by a Colombian!' At the recent Zumba Conference L.A., Guzman witnessed Zumba founder Beto Perez perform, and afterward posted on his Dennis G Fitness Facebook page: 'I am so proud my fellow Colombian created this fitness program that put food on the table for me...He is truly amazing.' 'It's a fitness party,' said Guzman, whose classes are citywide in L.A. Students range from a grandmother who wants to keep in shape to Puerto Rican actresses and former beauty queens. 'The best thing you can do after or before work is exercise your body,' said Guzman. With his quick smile and supportive attitude, he tends to focus more on his students' achievements than his own, but his Facebook page reveals over 600 followers plus numerous videos starring Guzman's hot moves and cheering students. "It's an honor to be invited back," said Guzman about his upcoming TV appearance on the "Viva" Zumba segment which is led by instructor Alex Collins. "I really appreciate this opportunity." As a licensed Zumba instructor, Guzman knows well the benefits of Zumba: "It's a great cardio workout that really tones the legs, and trains students in Latin forms of dance." The popular instructor is also certified in Group Resistance full body toning, Pilates Mat, and WSI Swimming, Aqua Fit, Spinning and Boot Camp. He has taught dance to children and teens, and choreographed quinceaneras. His B.A. is in Communications from University of Tampa. 'I'm so grateful Zumba was created because of how it fits my culture, dance training and personality,' said Guzman, who recently featured a dance class tribute to Rio during Carnival Week. 'My hope is to continue empowering people through dance fitness. One love!' (more...)
