How it all began
It was the summer of 2011. I had just moved to San Francisco from NYC. One day I was sitting at a cafe with friends lamenting the fact that I couldn’t find a dance class I loved in SF, when the obvious answer presented itself…create your own. I had studied with some amazing teachers in New York that gave me the foundation and spirit of the class I wanted to create. The week I went to look at the beautiful Academy of the Ballet, which became home to the flagship class, every Sunday - Sunday Skool as it is called. It started small with six friends and over time has grown into something I couldn’t have imagined - spawning multiple classes and workshops throughout the Bay Area; as well as the late-night dance party, Sexitude PM and performances for audiences of up to 1,400 people. It has become more than a class, it is a community, a movement, a dedication to being more amazing in our everyday lives.
