Dance, Play, Thrive – Oakland dance and fitness classes to support your fitness goals. I (Nancy) help people get healthy and thrive in their life. I bring a sense of humor, my life experiences, a Master’s Degree in Health Education, and several fitness certifications to help YOU.

15 years ago, a DANCE class changed my life, I discovered that moving my body was the key to my health. I have improved my confidence, physical coordination, sense of self-worth, and creativity. I learned how to THRIVE. I learned that PLAY is important, especially as an adult.

I love showing people that movement is a vital part of a healthy life.  I believe in having a silly, good time while pursuing fitness.
