I am married to my best friend and we have 5 wonderful children.
I love teaching Dance Moves!
I started dancing at the age of 3 and danced, with the exception of 1 year, till I was 18. My teen years were spent training with Edmonton School of Ballet in their “Professional Program”. During the ‘80s and ‘90s I admittedly fell in love with the Aerobic craze and loved the idea of instructing.
Unfortunately, while raising my kids I fell into the trap of not exercising and not taking care of myself. I gained a lot of weight and thought that I’d never get my body back. I decided at 35 I needed to make a change! I started running and eating properly. In 2006 I ran my first half marathon and marathon! Since that time I have run many more Marathons and even some Ultra Marathons. I now have my body back!
In 2008, the opportunity became available to me, to teach Dance Moves. Although I hadn’t danced in almost 20 years, I accepted, and I’m glad I did! It’s a great way to cross train and it’s just plain FUN!!
I started teaching Dance Moves while still at home raising my little ones, and although I have gone back to work full time, I find that I can’t give it up! Dancing is a great way to keep fit and I think Dance Moves is an all around complete body and mind workout. I love how dancing makes me feel young, vibrant and fit!
