The creator of Zumba, a popular exercise fitness program, just picked up a new place to dance like nobody’s watching.

Alberto “Beto” Pérez paid $5.5 million for unit 2704 in the north tower of Continuum Miami Beach, at 50 South Pointe Drive, property records show. Investor Gregory Gould sold the three-bedroom, 2,173-square-foot unit for $2,531 per square foot.

Stephan Burke, Carol Cassis and Diana Carulla of Brown Harris Stevens Miami represented the seller. Diana Tello of Envirotek Realty brought the buyer.

Gould paid $3.5 million for the Continuum North condo in 2011, records show.

Pérez created Zumba in 1999. Roughly 15 million people take Zumba weekly classes in over 200,000 locations in 180 countries, according to its website.

Pérez will be in similar company. In May, fitness expert and keto diet enthusiast Mark Sisson and his wife Carrie Sisson paid $13.25 million for a combined unit at Continuum South. That same month, an heir to the fortune of Philadelphia businessman Lewis Katz paid $6.8 million or $2,300 per square foot for unit 3707, also in the south tower.

The Continuum is undergoing an exterior renovation designed by ArquitectonicaGEO. The development was built by Ian Bruce Eichner’s Continuum Co. in the early 2000s.
