Dance is an empowering form of self-expression and physical fitness
to be enjoyed by all women, regardless of age or body type. My
intention is to create a safe, non-judgmental and playful environment
where women of all ages and body types can step into feeling more
sexy and alive in their bodies and in their lives. ~ Catherine Rose
