Natalie has over 25 years experience as a dancer and dance teacher. She completed her degree in Honours Dance from the University of Waterloo where much of her program had a minor focus in kinesiology. She then completed her Bachelor of Education with an Honours Specialist in Dance at York University. Over the course of her teaching career, Natalie has been an active member of CODE (Council of Dance and Drama Educators) and has presented workshops at regional conferences in addition to consulting on the Ontario Arts Curriculum-Dance, 2009. Natalie has been a long-time participant of yoga and fitness classes, particularly as they were a mandatory part of her conditioning as a dancer, and has now transitioned this expertise into her fun, safe and dynamic classes, including Zumba! She recently completed her Canfitpro FIS (Fitness Instructor Specialist) and Total Barre Instructor certification. Natalie is passionate about healthy living, fitness and her kids! When not committed to her 6 am Boot Camp workout here at NRG, she loves to relax with a good book by the lake or choreograph/direct for local theatre.
