Gyrotonic® and Pilates inspired personalized training for ballet dancers, ballroom dancers, ice skaters, movement instructors, bodyworkers and aerial silks artists
Sharon is an extremely gifted Professional Coach and Choreographer. She started her training at the illustrious School of American Ballet under the tutelage of the legendary George Balanchine. From there she found her true love, pas de deux, or the art of partnering, and became a decorated ballroom dance exhibition champion.
Sharon was one of the first three NYC ballet dancers trained by the creator of Gyrotonic®, Julio Horvath. She credits her ability to have a long competitive dance career to the Gyrotonic system.
The Gyrotonic® method is an orginal and unique movement practice which has roots in Yoga, Tai Chi, and dance. Gyrotonic exercise sequences are composed of spiraling, circular movements, which flow together seamlessly in rhythmic repetitions, with corresponding breath. Each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility.
Pilates is a body conditioning routine that can help build flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing, and developing a strong core or center, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginning to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.
