Emy has trained with various companies such as Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Miami City Ballet, and Complexions Contemporary Ballet. After graduating, Emy moved to Michigan to dance professionally with Eisenhower Dance Detroit. In addition to her professional career, she teaches dance at the School of EDD.

Brooke, originally from Wisconsin, is currently a professional dancer, teacher, and trainer in the Metro Detroit area who has recently found a love for Pilates and GYROKENISIS®. As a professional contemporary dancer, she has had many injuries and little access to cross training opportunities for physical therapy. Recently undergoing reconstructive hip surgery, her dance career came to a halt. Post surgery, through GYROKENISIS® and STOTT Pilates training, she not only had a speedy recovery, but also gained additional strength and mobility, allowing her to continue dancing at the professional level.
Brooke is currently a STOTT Pilates Reformer Apprentice, and is continuing her training to be fully certified. She enjoys teaching an upbeat class that is challenging, yet keeps the mind at ease! Movement is her second language and she feels exercise should be fun and rewarding. Brooke likes to focus on proper alignment and giving verbal cues to ensure her clients are firing the proper muscles. Questions are always encouraged to keep the space inviting for people of all skill levels.
A little movement every day can go a long way to keeping a healthy lifestyle!
