Barre Instructor

Rosalie has been taking Barre classes for the past five years. What got her really hooked, was when she was pregnant with her first child. She took Barre throughout her entire pregnancy and found that it was the best way for her to stay active and healthy without overexerting herself.

 

Rosalie continued to take Barre postpartum as well as through her second pregnancy. She then decided to earn her Bootybarre certification to help others with their fitness goals and to share her experience with a fun way to stay active. When out of the studio, Rosalie is loving life with her husband and two young boys.

This training has allowed her to have extreme consideration for maintaining healthy muscles and joints as well as optimum alignment while dancing. She loves to share this knowledge with her students along with a focus on strong technical skills.

 

Kalie enjoys teaching Ballet, Pointe, and Modern dance as well as inspiring young dancers through creative movement. Whether it’s to become audition ready or just to have fun, Kalie is happy to help her students reach their goals.
