The natural progression that brought me from dancer, to mom, to teacher, has greatly influenced my designs of comfortable and flattering dance, fitness, and lifestyle apparel to wear myself in my busy and active lifestyle, and for others with the same demands for their clothing.
FIRST A DANCER
I began my professional training atThe North Carolina School Of The Arts, continuing at George Balanchine's School Of American Ballet (S.A.B.) in New York City. I am so grateful to have been one of the last two dancers hand-picked by Mr. Balanchine to join his company. There I trained amidst the most amazing faculty at S.A.B., closely watching and learning from the inspiring dancers and staff of the New York City Ballet. Eventually, after particularly enjoying the many European tours with the company, I decided to move abroad, joining first the Compañia Nacional de Danza in Madrid, Spain and later, The Ballet du Capitole in Toulouse, France. Upon returning to the States, I rounded out my career dancing in Broadway musicals both on national tours and on the 'Great White Way' in New York City. While I contemplated my next steps, I continued to appear as a guest artist with ballet companies around the country.
new life ~ new name
After 30 years of dancing, in 2001 I stepped off the stage, retired from performing, and moved with my new family to begin a new life in Bethlehem , PA.
★★★★★A must have item!
I love these racerback tops! I wear them ALL the time. Comfortable and soft and supportive. Love that they come down a bit over the hips….Great for a dance teacher or student or someone who loves to be active.Sara H.
★★★★★QUALITY AND GREAT FIT!
I love the design with no back side seams in combination with this supplex fabric that does not see-through and feels so soft as it hugs my skin. The olive color is distinctive and pairs well with several of my other SteelCore pieces.Margie W.
★★★★★All purpose leotards
How I love these leotards! Let me count the ways. They’re cotton, organic, comfortable, and flattering to mention a few. They do run small (like most leotards). I’m a size 8-10 in normal clothes, and have to get an XL. Nonetheless, I can wear this all day long, and often do.Anonymous
★★★★★I live in this bra!
There is no other bra that is as supportive AND comfortable than my Steel Core bras. I have every color and multiples in each. I look forward to even more options in the future to expand my collection! Thank you Steel Core!Sharon Z.
These are the most luxurious leggings I have ever worn. They allow absolutely freedom of movement. There is no tugging or squeezing and yet they never bag. They are perfect!Anonymous
