That ballet class sparked the love she has for dance which also led her to pursue dance as a career being a performer and an instructor. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Science, her thesis was focused on the importance of anaerobic training in power output on competitive dancers. With this she was able to create a training program targeted to build and improve dance skills and agility helping all skill levels which she uses till this day.
