Marie began dancing when she was 3 years old under the instruction of former Rockette, Barbara Zerillo. She danced and cheered competitively throughout the country and grew to have a true passion and appreciation for all things dance and movement. After high school, Marie continued her dance education attending workshops and training under prominent dancers, including the Philadelphia 76ers Dance Team and Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders. Along with becoming a certified Zumba instructor, Marie is an award winning choreographer in competitive dance and has been teaching for over 10 years. Marie continues to take classes and attend workshops throughout the year to bring fresh ideas and choreography to all of her classes. With a focus on fundamentals, choreography is Miss Marie’s passion! Combining technique and imagination to create fresh combinations and performances has always been an important connection for Marie and her students.
