Helmed by Valeria and Eliana, two fun-loving sisters from Argentina, Zumba People whisks exercisers to a Latin-inspired dance party fueled by rhythms from around the world. Along with Cristina Schulz, a certified Zumba instructor from Venezuela, the siblings guide students of all levels through 60 minutes of easy-to-follow choreography drawn from salsa’s hip swivels, merengue’s footwork, and guacamole’s sultry dips. Each workout burns calories and tones muscles throughout the body, helping attendees tackle fitness goals such as losing weight and increasing energy. Instead of predicting class times with the Farmers’ Almanac, customers can visit Zumba People’s website for a schedule of classes at the Grapevine and Southlake or Fort Worth/Watauga locations.
Valeria and Eliana have experienced Zumba’s stress-melting, physique-sculpting powers firsthand. Eliana discovered the workout while coping with her husband’s cancer diagnosis, using the sessions to fight sadness and cultivate inner peace. After struggling with obesity for 15 years, Valeria lost 65 pounds by attending Zumba regularly, then became a teacher to help others get in shape without sleeping in life-size Jello molds.
Sisters Eliana and Valeria both discovered Zumba during challenging times in their lives⎯Valeria while fighting obesity and Eliana while helping her late husband through cancer treatments. These past experiences inform the sisters’ approaches to the dance classes they lead. Valeria creates a comfortable and nonjudgmental environment for students of all fitness levels, and Eliana wants to offer her students the same freedom and escape she found during one-hour Zumba workouts. Both ladies are certified instructors and teach several subspecies of Zumba dance, including Zumbatomic for children and Zumba Gold for seniors, beginners, and prenatal students. Zumba People also tries to foster a sense of community among its students, hosting costumed dance parties for Halloween and orchestrating the occasional flash mob. Classes are held six days a week, and schedules for the Hurst and Southlake locations vary.
