Veronica Perez

MixxedFit & Commit Dance Fitness Instructor
Veronica was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina raised in Logan Square, Chicago. She has been teaching dance fitness for 5 years. She is currently the MixxedFit Master Educator for the State of Illinois.

2 years ago, she began the Chicago “KIDZ WANNA DANCE” program at Studio 101 Dance & Fitness. A program designed for girls ages 7-15 to help build confidence while serving in their communities. Teaching life & social skills through dance fitness. Reminding our girls that there is not a set blue print on how you have to look and feel. But more importantly, be KIND to others!

Community involvement is always a priority! As MixxedFit Master Educator, she has organized donation Drives for local organizations such as Cradles to Crayons to help children from low income families. With the help of other Mixxedfit instructors and enthusiasts, organized and assisted in several fundraisers throughout the city benefiting families in need.

Veronica believes that dance fitness helps people accept, love and empower each other.

“For every imperfection, every grey hair, every scar/stretch mark, I am reminded that in order for the world to accept me – I have to love the real me. And in order to connect with my students, I must let myself be vulnerable.
I realized that what I REALLY teach is authenticity, acceptance, love, empowerment, and self-worth the dance and workout becomes part of the process”
My goal is simple: I want you to want to forget you are working out, to love the music, smile and to get hooked while achieving long-term benefits and experience an absolute blast in one exciting hour of calorie-burning, body-energizing, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life!

    It was my first and with in seconds we started dancing nonstop. It was an interesting experience for my first time and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The teacher was super positive and always had a smile on her face. It was fun. I would do it again but I'm a location closer to me.

    A friend of mine invited me to attend a class with her after I expressed my general interest in finding a dance fitness class. I am so glad I went with her. Veronica and the other ladies there were all very nice and inviting. It is definitely the type of environment where I can be comfortable focusing on myself without being self conscious of how I look or feel like I am being judged. The actual class was fun and a great work out. The hour flew by quickly without time for me to focus on how much I hate sweating and working out. I will definitely be back

    My daughter loves being in dance. It is now a passion. She practices at home daily and has me join her (something we enjoy doing together). I couldn't be happier that we've found Studio 101 and this program. The adult classes are pretty amazing too!

    Laura was a wonderful instructor. I didn’t know a thing about Latin dance but she made it so easy for me to learn and not feel silly about doing it. It was a great class and I can’t wait to go back for more dancing.

    I have only been coming to these classes for a short period of time and I love them. Zumba is always a good time and this class is no different.

    This was my first Zumba class entirely, so I didn't know what to expect, and it was really great! It was enjoyable and fun, and not too hard to keep up - even though there were some moves that I couldn't get, the pace of the class and moves are so varied, you can just wing it and keep going. Even if you miss a few steps, you can just pick it up and continue on. This was a Zumba toning, so most of the class involved using some light weights during the dances, which made it a bit easier to follow (since some moves were slower and more direct) and added a nice extra element to the exercise.

    The instructor and vibe of the class were great as well - very welcoming and encouraging, and everyone was just there to have a good time and do a fun workout. The studio was a good small size and shape so everyone could see the instructor and had plenty of space to spread out.

    Latin Groove Night was GREAT! A perfect way to spend a Friday evening. The dance instruction was easy to follow, paced well, and we left feeling like we could actually can go out into the world and properly dance bachata and merengue. Highly recommend!

    Simple, bright, clean studio and Estefania is a great instructor. I liked the mix of songs/moves - some more Zumba, some more Mixxed-fit, and a bit of toning.
