Coming from the great state of NY, I have danced since the age of 5. Growing up, it was tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop and acro, while competing with group routines. As a young adult, I continued taking classes and performing for fun and worked as a choreographer for a small local theater group. Upon moving to VA in 2007, I quickly found a lack of dancing opportunities for adults. In 2011, a friend asked me to try a pole class with her. And what started out just for fun, quickly became a hobby, turned into an obsession and then just became a way of life. I started teaching barre and pole choreography classes while studying for the AFAA Primary Group Exercise Certification. In early 2017, I fell and broke my hand, requiring surgery to implant three screws. Pole classes were out for a while at this point and I got bored. I felt the need to do something else and add to my skills. I had taken a few Liquid Motion classes previously and really enjoyed them. So, I signed up to be certified myself! My love of floorwork and the Liquid Motion way eventually just became my "thing" that I'm now known for. In the fall of 2018, I opened my own studio with two partners. I love watching everyone's journey in my classes and how they progress and make simple movements their own. "Workouts don't have to be boring. And pole fitness and dancing is anything but. It's a great workout, both physically and mentally. It also makes you part of a great community."
