Ionut Iordache - Romania
Ionut has been a ZIN Member since 2012, and ever since he entered the world of Zumba he found his purpose!
Going from working as an economist and an accountant for 5 years with no dance background, to teaching and dancing every day was not an easy task, but for his heart it was the most natural thing he could be doing!
His entire life changed by simply watching a commercial for ZinCon 2011! Seeing all those thousands of people smiling, dancing and share the same passion together opened his eyes to a whole new world he never thought existed.
Ionut's first Zumba class as a student was at his B1 Training with ZES Ana Georgescu, and by the time the training ended he already knew what his future was.
Working for years to overcome insecurities and to develop the teaching skills he needed to fulfill his dream of being part of that world full of smiles and love, has made him realise that there is no end to learning, growing and developing yourself in Zumba!
He started sharing his choreos on Youtube and his passion and joy brought so many people in his life that inspired and helped him grow as a person and an instructor even more.
He is fortunate enough to have been able to teach all over Europe, holding Masterclasses in countries like Austria, Germany, England, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Denmark, Romania and many more.
He was a presenter at International Fitness conventions such as Fitness Scandinavia International Convention (Romania), Believe London (UK), ZumbaFest (UK), Latin Dance Camp (Germany), Blue Rocks International Fitness Event ( Bulgaria) and various Dance Fitness Weekend Events all across Europe.
There are bumps and rocky paths in every journey and he has encountered many of them, but the most important lesson he has learned is that they are all worth it in the end, because the rewards you gain after each obstacle are life's greatest treasures!
He continues to share his passion everyday on his social media pages and he is constantly inspired by the wonderful people in his life that support him in his journey!
