Originally from Portland, Oregon-I grew up dancing, doing gymnastics, and swimming. Eventually dance lead me to a professional career in NYC after studying at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Sadly an injury ended my career way too early- leaving me on bedrest for almost a year- three surgeries later- working out at Barry’s always continued to be a place I could gather more and more strength in, mentally and physically. I believe every set back in our lives is really a set up for something greater. There are so many roads to travel and sometimes we get focused on one road we forget about the others! My goal in class is to get you dancing around the red room, sprinting past your edge, and leaving the room learning something new about yourself and your journey that you didn’t before!
