At first glance, one could assume that fashion and lifestyle influencer, Ziba Lennox, might have her hands full: being a mother of two boys, cofounder of MaZi Dance Fitness here in Chicago, and a full-time blogger would be enough to keep anyone busy! Even so, there is more to Ziba than initially meets the eye.
As a first-generation Mexican-American born in El Paso, TX, Ziba was raised by her parents speaking Spanish before learning English. She entered the world of professional ballet at only twelve years old and continued dancing and performing until she was 23. She attributes her love of travel to her experience performing in cities all over the world.
Eventually, she decided to study Finance, first at the University of Texas at El Paso and then afterward attending the University of Rochester for her Bachelor’s and Masters of Business Administration degrees. After gaining experience in retail, she decided to cofound MaZi Dance Fitness—which is a dance fitness studio—with her sister Marisol in 2009.
With her blog, Dancing Mama Style, Ziba aims to inform, inspire, and connect with others all over the world, not just in the USA. Her blog covers the topics you’d expect such as fashion, beauty, and mamahood, but dives even deeper into travel (both US and worldwide), fitness and health, as well as giving insights and advice while Ziba shares her experiences with being a “Mompreneur”—and she’s got plenty of experience to share!
A large portion of Ziba’s audience first discovered her through Instagram, where she has amassed a following of over 75,000 users that enjoy her professionally curated feed—allowing her to engage with her fans directly while sharing the more day-to-day aspects of her life via her Instagram stories.
