I love everything about Dance Fit Flow! There is too much to list! I just love seeing so many “former” dancers absolutely light up during class. I love that no matter how long it’s been since you last danced, you instantly feel at home when you walk into class. Once a dancer, always a dancer! Meeting new people and making new friends as adults is so hard sometimes, but DFF brings so many people together everyday! DFF has been so amazing for my personal health- mentally, physically, and emotionally- since day one!”

ERICA’S CLASS

Intermediate Tap - A bit of everything! Familiar steps, new steps, fast steps, slow steps, classic tap music, current music, progressions, center combinations, and cardio! Tappers are always given harder and/or easier options for steps, and are encouraged to choose whichever level they are comfortable with throughout the class.

ABOUT ERICA

I started teaching dance on the playground as a kid, began assisting classes at my studio at age 13, and started teaching and choreographing at age 18. I have choreographed many award winning tap and lyrical routines throughout the last 17 years. I have taught tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, and even a little hip hop, acro, and musical theatre. I’ve worked with dancers of all ages, from preschool to older adults!

I started a home cleaning business in 2016. I have been married to my husband Ryan since 2010, and we have three cats- Manny, Stewie, and Toby. We are recently new to homeownership.

“I love all the positive energy each client brings in the studio every Saturday morning. Nothing can beat teaching a class with dancers who love what they are doing and are so excited to learn and be active!”

SKYLAR’S CLASS

Intro to Tap - A great way to get introduced to the world of tap or maybe get back into those tap shoes and get your feet moving. This class is designed for beginners to learn basic tap sounds, skills, and rhythms and begin to put them together. This class is laid back, lots of fun, and an encouraging learning environment.

ABOUT SKYLAR

I started dancing when I was 4 and grew up training in all styles of dance such as jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, and contemporary. I have loved getting to grow in every style of dance, but tap has always been one of my favorites. I was lucky to get to train in tap and precision dance with the Radio City Rockettes for 3 summers during their summer intensive program. I danced through college and was lucky to get to share this love and knowledge with others as I began teaching during college. I have continued teaching back home in Kansas City and am currently dancing my rookie season as a Kansas City Chiefs Cheerleader.

Outside of dancing and fitness instruction, I am a Registered Nurse working in the NICU at Children's Mercy. I love getting to be a part of helping people and families grow, whether it be at the hospital, the dance studio or fitness studio.

ABOUT jenn

I started off as a depressed 250-pound student in a fitness class with the desire to get better. In the process, I had an urge, a desire to help others feel better about themselves. When it comes to dance... I had no dance background. but watched music videos, watched people dance at the corner bodega and learned the art of dance. Fast Forward almost 25 years and numerous fitness-certifications, I am a dance-fitness instructor who loves every minute. I am still learning but this time by the amazing women at Dance Fit Flow.

I am a wife and a mother of 3. My son Isaac is 20, Daughter Aleyana is 17 and my youngest Vanessa is 11. We have 4 dogs, 1 cat, and 2 birds. My family should own a zoo. Meraki Artistry is the name of my business. I am a photographer, Makeup Artist and Esthetician. Yes, I do it all. I have currently started baking cakes as my hobby. Overall what makes me happy is making those around me happy. I love seeing smiles on faces. My fave scripture of all time is 2 Samuel 22: 2,3. In these verses King David was speaking to Jehovah God in song. " Jehovah is my crag and my stronghold and the one who rescues me. My God is my Rock in whom I take refuge." I love this scripture because it has helped me in my darkest moments. What makes me , me? I consider myself to be loving and caring but also a little spicy when need be.

ABOUT NATALIE

I grew up dancing competitively for over 15 years at Nebraska Dance Company in Omaha, Nebraska. I traveled the country dancing and taking lots of different style of classes growing up. One of my most impactful experiences was spending the summer in NYC at American Ballet Theatre summer intensive in 2011 and 2012. When I came to KC for college, I fell in love with barre fitness from my ballet experience. I love being able to share my passion and knowledge for dance with all those who walk into Dance Fit Flow.

I am a full time instructor and choreographer at Perception Dance Company and teach fitness classes at Mission Hills Country Club. It is hard to call my career "work" because it doesn't feel like work. However, outside of work I love spending time with my family, friends, exploring KC, traveling, and working out.
