Silvi Ortega Gonzalez

Silvi (Silvita) was born in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. She started dancing at a very young age and was often seen listening and grooving to her parent’s Cumbia records and Chayanne. As a child, she enrolled in dance, Flamenco and Ballet – dancing has always been a part of her life.

In 2002, Silvi moved to Canada, in search of her purpose in life. She found it here in Vancouver, which is now home.

A few years ago, she felt unhappy with her weight and found the perfect solution: becoming a certified BCRPA Group Fitness Instructor.

She started teaching Cardio-kickboxing, Bootcamp and Indoor Cycling but music was always the biggest priority in her classes. Silvi first heard of Zumba® back in Mexico in 2008, but had not tried it yet. She soon became licensed to teach Zumba® in 2010, and it has changed her life.

Silvi now teaches different styles of Dance Fitness, her favourites being: Reggaeton, Salsaton, Merengue, Soca, and African. She has truly found the best of both worlds: fitness and dance.

Silvi is a ball of energy; she strongly believes in feeling the rhythm and soul of the music, and never shies away from expressing herself on the dance floor. For her, this is the key to an amazing Zumba® experience.
