Beto Perez, an aerobics instructor in Cali,
Colombia, had forgotten his traditional dance music for a class he was
teaching. Rather than cancel the class, he improvised using the salsa
music that was in his gym bag. Beto integrated traditional dance steps
along with the aerobic movements and called this new exercise program "Rumbacise".
In 1999, Perez brought his new aerobic dance program to Miami, where he
teamed with Perlman and Aghion and rebranded the class as "Zumba".
