Dance fitness is more than a business for me its a passion! A great way for me to relieve my stress became a wonderful opportunity to have fun while staying fit. As a mother of two, wellness is my priority.  Having fun showing others how to start, maintain or endure their fitness journey makes the sore muscles and long days worth it. We all have an inner rock star. Come unleash yours with me!
