About the Crew
Jimmy, aka Zumba Jesus, has a passion for Latin dance since being a young boy. Jimmy’s commitment in life is a fit/healthy lifestyle (and fashionable one) while also having a natural ability to make people smile. Having disabled veteran status from having served two Iraq tours with the United States Marine Corp., Jimmy sees Zumba® as an incredible, transformational therapy that he hopes can help bring others the same healing and joy that it has for him. For Jimmy, family is everything and he wishes to open the doors to others to be apart of the “Zumba family” and community that the DFC crew have been bringing together for over eight years.
For Talin, dance is a form of expression with the amazing ability to bring people together, stay healthy and become more comfortable in ones body. Growing up as a ballet dancer, she was always self conscious about dancing. Talin was excited to find Zumba® because she realized it wasn’t about looking perfect, but about having fun while getting an awesome workout. She hopes that DFC can continue to be a place celebrating diversity, friendship, health and wellness. (instagram @talinb)
Marco is an entrepreneur, photographer and designer with a passion for nutrition and holistic living. He fell in love with Zumba® Fitness because it encourages freedom of expression, self acceptance, confidence, community and a sense of fun and positivity.
Marco is also extremely passionate about STRONG Nation™. He feels as though class is like training the next waive of Avengers. It pushes you to gain self=mastery over your physical body while training to the music.
Marco believes that DFC can be a place where people come to receive support and guidance for every aspect of their lives, from physical to nutritional and spiritual for an all around balanced wellbeing.
Denise loves to work in the healthcare industry, but “instant inversion therapy” is her true passion. She loves teaching and helping people strengthen their lumbar spine through inversion therapy. She is encouraging to all students/clients to find peace and strength in the trapeze while listening to one’s body and honoring their own limits. Her classes are ideal for newcomers and seasoned practitioners looking to improve or perfect their form in trapeze practice.
Denise is Yogabody Teacher’s College Certified Yoga Alliance Yoga Trapeze Instructor.
