Qualifications: 20 years of teaching and professional dance experience. Was a principal dancer with the Atlantic Contemporary Ballet Theatre and Ballet South of New Jersey.

Personal History: My "Dancer’s Body" program originated as a Ballet Body-Shaping class. It enjoyed tremendous popularity, filling classes for several years. Students were so enthusiastic about the unique exercises and the results they were getting that they requested a video they could do in the convenience of their homes. Thus began, A Dancer’s Body.

Workout Philosophy: I believe in a balanced approach to achieving overall fitness. It is important to combine a healthy diet with both aerobic and muscle toning exercises. I believe each person can achieve their most aesthetically pleasing body by combining strengthening exercises with oppositional stretches to create a more balanced and leaner appearance. It is important to target a variety of muscle groups and experiment with working the muscles in different ways so the body doesn’t settle in (with certain muscles getting stronger and bulkier while others remain weak and unbalanced). This is one of the advantages dance-based workouts have. Balance is key!
