When you aren’t at CFit, what do you do?
I’m a professional contemporary dancer! I currently dance for The Three Yells and Faunix Dance here in Seattle.
How did you discover Barre and what do you love most about it?
My love for barre comes from a long love and study of ballet and its discipline and strength training. I have been looking for something similar in the fitness world that is safe and effective for all bodies and still has the rigor of ballet training and I believe barre can do that.
What’s your favorite way to spend a day or night off?
Cooking and dancing with people I love!
What is something not many people know about you?
I grew up on a small farm where we had a rooster named Guapo. My friends were so afraid of him they didn’t want to come over! My sister and I got tough, though awesome parenting.
If you could instantly master any skill/superpower/talent/knowledge, what would it be?
Flying- still only happening in my dreams but I keep trying!
What are you most passionate about in life?
I am passionate about strong friendships, human rights, strong relationships to our bodies and finding the joy and play in life.
Any good movies/books/bands/foods/discoveries lately that you’d recommend?
The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson! I can’t recommend it enough.
