Gleneagles Community Centre
I took my first dance class at 11 years old and have never looked back. I studied jazz, ballet, contemporary, musical theatre, tap, salsa, and have dabbled in bollywood and hip hop. I fell in love with ZUMBA® after taking a workshop with Janet and Nadi, and decided I'd like to branch out in my career and teach something that makes people feel so good.
I love the Latin rhythms, especially Cumbia, and I have a real affinity for Bellydance and Bollywood music and movement. Really, I love it all. I bring my theatre background to my classes, so you can expect me to be fun and ridiculous while we work it and all sweat together.
I've been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist since 1996 and own my own clinic - Serenity Therapeutic Massage. My extensive background in anatomy and kinesiology enhance my BCRPA group fitness certification, helping me lead a safe and effective class.
My other activites include practicing Bikram Yoga and performing in musical theatre productions with the Broadway Chorus.
