Polly and her team are the absolute best. She is passionate and she runs her business with integrity, and it shows! From her hand made costumes that she designs herself, to her fun and interactive dancers and choreography, her team really shines.

    During the pandemic we are offering our fitness services on a sliding scale, with additional discounts offered for BIPOC.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Fitness: I offer free initial assessments where we spend about 45 minutes talking about your medical and physical history, goals, and challenges before doing a movement assessment. I use all that information to design a program specifically to help you reach your goals!
