Confessions of a Radio City Rockette
It is important to me that I make a positive, healing, encouraging and empowering impact on the world. My purpose is being a teacher and facilitator. I believe movement is very healing, physically: in addition to leg braces, dance classes helped me to overcome the physical challenge of being born very pigeon toed. I wound up having a nearly twenty year professional musical theatre and dance career; the highlight of which was being a Rockette in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in Mexico City the first year the show went international.
Once it was time to start a family, I retired from my dance/theatre career and became certified as a Pilates trainer. I've found my twenty year Pilates career to be very fulfilling. I love being of service to others: training them in proper posture, alignment, body mechanics and Pilates exercises has allowed me to facilitate people healing from chronic pain and achieve their fitness goals.
I also believe movement is healing emotionally/mentally: the combination of working with my Pilates students and returning to dancing played a significant role in healing from the depression, anxiety and panic attacks I suffered as a result of divorce. Teaching and facilitating are about learning, growing and connecting: assisting others’ learning and growing allows me to be of service. I’ve been told I am easy to be around, have a delightful sense of humor and make exercise enjoyable.
My training never ends
Continuing education is one of the foundations of my business. Here are few of the courses I’ve completed:
I’m honored to be a volunteer teacher at Cancer Support Community Pasadena, a non-profit organization providing free support, cancer education and hope. I teach Pilates to people with cancer and their caregivers.
