Bio

My name is Jennifer Silva and I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, in the south-east region of Brazil. However, I have lived almost my best years in Recife, in the north-east region, where I learned a bunch of exciting and frenetic rhythms that compose my history as a dancer.

I specialised in Infant Education, Language Development, Psycho-pedagogy and Dance & Movement. Accordingly I started to work as a reception teacher, also teaching dance for KS1 to KS3.When I took my first step in a gym I fell in love immediately with the entire fitness concept, it became my passion, which led me to start specialisations in bodybuilding, exercise to music, aerobics and personal training.

When I took my first step in a gym I fell in love immediately with the entire fitness concept, it became my passion, which led me to start specialisations in bodybuilding, exercise to music, aerobics and personal training. Thereafter, together with my work in schools I started to teach step and aerobic classes in gyms. After moving to Europe I upgraded my qualifications to become a Zumba® and Zumba® kids/Jr. Instructor as well.I have been dancing since I was 13 years old and as a dancer my strongest background is in samba and forró in which I dance at a professional level, but over time I became active in other rhythms, strongly present in my city, such

I have been dancing since I was 13 years old and as a dancer my strongest background is in samba and forró in which I dance at a professional level, but over time I became active in other rhythms, strongly present in my city, such as: frevo, lambada, samba de gafieira, carimbó, brega pop, merengue and maracatu. Other styles that fascinate me and which I dance often are Latin Jazz, Ballroom Dancing, Bollywood and Michael Jackson style.Presently I am studying to work in training people with medical conditions and also taking a degree in Health Sciences.

Presently I am studying to work in training people with medical conditions and progress to work with people with neurological disorders.

I am enthusiastic about everything related to fitness, and what makes me love what I do is the ability to drive someone in the right direction to reach their goals and see how they progress and achieve them.  I believe that all the knowledge and abilities you acquire are worthwhile and will bring you fulfilment, only if you share them in a way that can be beneficial to others.

I am always thirsty for knowledge, the complexity of the human body fascinates me and I am constantly looking to develop my skills through CPD courses, lectures and books related to my area.

My journey with Actingworks

My journey with Actingworks started about 2 years ago. While taking a break in my career to recover from an injury, I applied to become a volunteer teacher for the Arts & Crafts Club. I felt swept along by all the energy and creativity of Actingworks, and soon I was volunteering in other clubs and helping Bebie with some office tasks. Today I work together with Bebie as the programme coordinator helping her to organise the programme and all our fantastic activities, and I love every minute of it!
