Founding Elixir Dance and Fitness represents a lifelong dream come true for Natalie. Originally from the city of Bath in southwest England, Natalie has danced since she was three years old. She danced professionally in theaters, hotels, casinos, and cruise ships across Europe and the United States for over 10 years. She has taught dance and fitness to all age groups, ranging from 18 months to adults, for the past 12 years. Her dance styles include ballet, modern, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, and latin. In addition to dance training, she is a certified yoga teacher and a certified personal trainer. She thrives in sharing her passion for dance with others, and looks forward to connecting with you!
