I am a dancer at heart. The majority of my life has revolved around dance. At 8 years old I discovered I had a talent for dancing and a passion for learning. I became a world class ballroom competitor representing the United States at age 13 at the World Championships in Russia. I became the United States Amateur Smooth Champion in 2013 and soon after moved to Denmark to study with World Ten Dance Champions, Bjorn and Ashli Bitsch.
While studying in Denmark, I realized how much had been missing in my dance training in America. I wanted to bring this attention to detail back to the dancers in the USA–I found a passion for the details of human kinesiology! When I returned to the United States I began to seek out methods of exercise that would further enhance my ability to access musculature and imagery that takes a dancer from good to great! At one point, I experienced a knee injury and Pilates became my go-to form of rehabilitation. I knew from the quick rehabilitation that Pilates had afforded me along with the amazing flexibility I was able to maintain that Pilates was my answer. I became a Certified Pilates Instructor.
