While I like to think I was that little toddler running around in a pink tutu with a bow in my hair, I actually started dance at 10 years old. From 10 to about 12, I studied classical ballet, tap, and jazz. From 15-18, I apprenticed and then began intensely studying ballet, contemporary, modern, jazz, etc. with a pre-professional dance company. Once I realized I wasn’t going to take the professional track, I went off to college but continued taking classes and dancing 7 days a week with my college company and dance team. Upon graduation, I moved from NJ to NC and began my teaching career. I sought out dance studios but quickly realized it was hard to find a studio that catered to experienced yet non-professional dancers that just wanted to have fun. Fast forward 8 years later, I was on my quest again to incorporate dance into my life. I found The Dancer’s Workout, and I was hooked from the first class!
In one word, “The Dancer’s Workout” means REVITALIZATION. Anyone who knows me knows I can’t sit still if there’s a good song on to dance to and if I’m dancing and working out at the same time, it’s a win/win scenario. Jules’ story has inspired me to not only continue this class but continue it for years to come to maintain my health and fitness.
