I started dancing at the age of 3 and I haven’t stopped moving since! I currently instruct and choreograph various dance classes to students of all ages here in Springfield. I danced competitively for 9 years and had the opportunity to travel all around the country and work with the industry’s best. My journey with dance continued after high school when I made the Missouri State Sugar Bears Dance Team. While I was on the team for 4 years, my love for fitness grew. I noticed that the stronger I got, the better dancer I became, and I saw my role on the team shift from member to leader. At that time in my life, I worked out because of my team. Not only was it mandatory, but there was a crowd of people judging my looks every time I stepped on a stage. It wasn’t until I came to the Studio in April of 2017 that I learned to do it for me…and not just to look good in any outfit, but for my own happiness. I was looking for something more than living room yoga and Jillian Michaels on YouTube. And ‘more’ is exactly what I found in Jamie’s Happy Hour JAM class. I loved it so much that I tried every class The Studio had to offer in that first week and I have been addicted to that feeling of sexy empowerment I felt after every class ever since. Jamie sparked my interest in instructing Barre fitness, so I did my research, took classes online through Physique 57, Barre Method, and traveled to St. Louis to take a Barre 3 class and knew it was the perfect fit for me. I want my class to contain the fundamentals of Barre fitness but with The Studio flair that comes with every class. I hope clients leave Power & Grace feeling sexy, empowered and stronger.
