I started dance classes in my early childhood and immediately fell in love with the creative outlet it gave me to express myself. Learning a variety of styles such as ballet, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, musical theater, and many more kept my interests growing more and more everyday. I continued my dance career by joining a dance company where I became a competition dancer. Continuing and growing as a dancer at such a young age put lots of pressure on my body to do things naturally a body should not be forced into. About three years ago I was diagnosed with severe muscle spasms because my S.I. joints were out of place. On top of that I was dancing for months without knowing it was misaligned. Eventually my muscle spasms got to a point where some mornings I couldn’t get out of bed, and I required physical therapy. Many of the exercises I was doing in physical therapy were similar movements taught in Pilates. I signed up for a private class and I immediately noticed the relief it gave not only physically but also emotionally. Within a year I was able to fully start dancing again and I still continue to dance today but with moderation. This life changing event evolved my perspective on how important it is to take care of your body, eat a healthy diet and continue to be physically active.
