Lily is professional ballet dancer, dance teacher and choreographer. She graduated with High Honors from Butler University, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance, and a French Minor. Lily has danced professionally with the Richmond Ballet in Virginia, and in New York City. She has taught ballet and movement classes to students of all ages in Long Island, New York, as well as in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. Her passion for movement extends to Pilates. While a trainee with the Richmond Ballet, Lily studied with certified instructor, Jerry Weiss, and discovered the many benefits of Pilates for dancers. She feels that her training in Stott Pilates greatly enriched and informed how she dances. In both her dance and Pilates instruction, Lily emphasizes the importance of correct alignment, in order to train the body to work more efficiently and to protect from injury. Lily is excited to share her love of Pilates with others at My Pilates Studio.
