About Me

Daren began his journey as a student of Zumba Fitness and immediately felt he had found a home!  After taking classes for over two years, Daren was inspired to become a Zumba Fitness instructor and was licensed in October 2011. Daren has an enthusiasm for dance and group fitness and finds the Zumba program to be a great, fun way to get people energized about getting healthy and fit! He has a passion for Latin music in all forms, as well as, Bollywood, Arabic music, and global pop and wants to share that with others. Daren's work at the University of Washington's Department of Global Health has taken him to Ecuador, Peru, Mexico, and Canada where he always makes sure to find the time to dance! No stranger to the stage, Daren has performed as a sketch comedian in Seattle in the sketch comedy group, the Pork Filled Players! Daren welcomes EVERYONE to his classes where he'll bring his special brand of energy, humor, and enthusiasm to your workout!
