Vanessa studied and performed a myriad of dance styles since age 3, but ballet was her first love. She left her Kansas home in 99 to pursue theatre on the east coast, where she continued taking dance and started teaching it as well. She soon expanded her fitness repertoire with regular spin, yoga, pilates and boxing classes. Piloxing and Piloxing Barre naturally followed. Vanessa is inspired by helping others reach their goals. She’s excited to meet you at the barre and see where it goes!
