Joie has been an educator for the past 20 years as a teacher and athletic dance coach. She coached teams in the Denver Metro area to multiple state championships and national titles, and many of her students have gone on to dance in college, professionally, or have become fitness professionals.
As a dancer, her specialty is hip hop, contemporary, and choreography. Her strength is in training individuals to progress and grow at their own level and mentoring others to achieve personal dance and fitness goals. She owns a dance, fitness, and wellness studio with the hope to inspire others to return to their love of dance and fitness and build a strong community of caring, passionate people.
She has a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Culturally Responsive Teaching & Learning from the University of Denver. She specializes in working with at-risk student populations and continues to be an advocate for learning experiences available for everyone. The studio operates with a unique, business Service Model where a portion of memberships goes to assisting others who cannot afford regular fitness classes and to 5 other nonprofit organizations.
She is certified in dance, POUND, and BollyX and can't wait to rock out with the community.
