Quite simply, I’m a lover of ballet, or health, or both! I recently retired in May 2015, from a 15 year professional career from the Kansas City Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet, and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. I’m thankful for every moment of that time in my life and my heart will always hold a special place for dance.
I am currently the Wellness and Pilates Director for Performance Rehab in Kansas City. I have an awesome space with Pilates Equipment, and studio space with a sprung dance floor, barres and mirrors. This space provides for all sorts of fun classes! Please email me or call me for further inquiries in regards to the services provided. 913-648-6755 or either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
More about me:
Throughout my ballet career, I have been taking college classes, and in the fall of 2007 I decided after an injury that blatantly threatened my ballet career, to major in Health Education. Luckily, I returned to dance and after a 9 year stretch of tackling college class after college class, loop hole after loop hole, I graduated in August 2011 with a Bachelors of Science in Health Education with a focus in community health from the University of Cincinnati. From this day forward, I will always think there is no animal better than a bearcat! Well except for my golden retriever named Maddie!
I have always felt that dance has lacked the health attention that it deserves. Other than a nutrition talk here and there (which let’s be honest – is not always so helpful), there is just not enough focus on the educational aspect of a dancer’s total health.
My intent of dancehealthier is to share informative ideas, stories and information that come my way. Sometimes the topics will obviously and directly relate to “the dancer’s life,” and others will seem more “health” related, but the integration will always remain present. I dedicate dancehealthier to all those “hungry” dancers who are in constant reach for more (we can’t help that we are perfectionists). Whether you read and never look back, or become an avid reader, my hope is to educate, motivate and inspire you in some way throughout your own personal quest for “that more” – whatever it may be.
