    How did you join the Studio Rio family?

    – I used to work with Rio at the hospital when she first opened up the studio. I had asked her if she needed help with the grand opening.  She told me she needed someone to hang around while the flowers and food were being delivered.  I ended up staying that night for the party.  After a few glasses of wine I found myself swinging around on poles and rolling around on the ground in splits (something I haven’t done since high school).  I had the best time! I couldn’t believe how friendly and fun the girls were who took Rio’s classes.  They seemed to have a glow to them and exhibited a sense of pride and confidence that I wanted too.  Needless to say, I never left the studio.  I learned the routines and became infatuated with the poles.  I think coming to the grand opening was one of the most life changing experiences I will always be thankful for.

    One way you have changed since coming on board?

    – I, like many women, was in a bad relationship.  before I joined the studio, I didn’t have a lot of confidence in myself.  I couldn’t seem to think I was ever good enough.  I was battling for attention and gratitude I thought I deserved but never got.  Joining the studio not only helped boost my confidence, but it allowed me to help other girls feel good about themselves.  In return, I ended up with the best rewards-confidence along with great friendships!  (I don’t know what I would have ever done without you girls, and thank God for Rio!  I always told her I think she is an angel who walks the Earth.

    Tell us about yourself

    –  I am originally from Muskegon, Michigan and moved here after I got married.  When my marriage ended, I realized how great of friends I made here. Therefore, I ended up staying.  Not to mention I couldn’t leave the studio.  I graduated from ODU with a degree in nursing and love my job as an RN and at the studio.  Other than that, I love animals, socializing with other people, and of course DANCING!

    Give one reason someone should take our classes

    –  I can’t really give just one reason to take our classes.  Overall, these classes change the way you feel about yourself as well as change your body.  Along with a great workout, you walk away with great memories and great friends.  All the instructors here believe that no matter who the woman is…big, small, tall or short every woman is beautiful and everyone feels welcome here.
