Hello, my name is Valdeni (Nina), and I was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. It was there that I developed a passion for music, dance, and different rhythms. About five years ago I stepped into my very first zumba® class. It was there I realized how I could bring my passions together in one place, while helping people to transform their lives. I guess you can say it was passion at first sight! In 2011 my passion met purpose. I became a certified zumba® instructor. It is through zumba® that I have been able to share my passion of music, dance, fitness, my love for people and different cultures with my students every time I enter my classes. I am known by my students for my very fun, energetic, and motivational style of teaching. It is my personal goals to see each and every one of my students meet their goals with results. You will find that each one of my classes is a joyful celebration of life. My students often refer to my style of teaching as highly addictive. In 2013 I decided to take my students to a whole different level of fitness and I became a certified Insanity® instructor. I have come to see that through both zumba® and insanity® my students are meeting their goals and seeing amazing results. I hope to see you one day in my classes. Join me once and you too will be addicted.
