What do you do at Pulse?
Lights and desk with a little dancing thrown in.
What’s your background in dance, fitness, or both?
Since we could walk, my five siblings and I were choreographing routines for the neighborhood to witness! From “I’m a Barbie girl” to “Rockin’ Robbin,” we had a blast hamming it up. I went on to take classes in Hop Hop, Modern Dance, and a myriad of roles in Musical Theatre. Eventually, I was encouraged to teach as dance captain and the progression has been steady since then. There’s nothing a love more than breaking-a-sweat while busting-a-move with happy humans!
What’s your favorite thing about Pulse?
So far, the positive atmosphere and incredible community. Humans who play together, stay together.
What’s your favorite song, class, or routine?
I was recently humbled by Josh’s pound class-was sore for days after. Am excited to take it on again!
What’s your “guilty pleasure” (as long as it’s PG-rated)?
Chocolate chip cookies. Mama’s recipe.
Lastly, how would you describe PulsePDX to someone that you know would enjoy it here?
This is a community based on hard work and hard play. Fitness and health are the underlying intentions, but the atmosphere is of community, sweat, and shaking your booty like you’re Beyoncé.
