Throughout the years, Theatre and Dance has been a major part of Chris’ life. While in college, a Dance Professor inspired him to start instructing Zumba at the YMCA. It was at this time he discovered his passion to encourage people to keep moving no matter their level or ability.
As part of my YMCA involvement, he was introduced to Mat Pilates. As a participant, he realized how well it complimented with his dance classes. Over time, it became evident how significant of an impact Pilates can make on an individual’s life. It is for this reason he have chosen to share his passion with others.
Chris has choreographed and taught dance with the Phipps Center, Lakeshore Players, and Minneapolis Musical Theatre. He also enjoys taking dance classes and supporting the performing arts community.
