Allison has been practicing Nia enthusiastically since 2007, when her daughter was 9 months old. “I started dancing formally at age 5 and stopped at 15. When I became a Mama many years later, I quickly realized that I needed an expressive outlet. Discovering Nia reminded me of who I am and has reawakened my entire being, benefiting both myself and my family. In addition to a fabulous physical workout, Nia expands my emotional, spiritual and mental bodies through an invitation to explore and play. Come experience the Joy of Movement!”

After thrashing her body running Cross Country and Track in High School, Tessa was always searching for a more fun and holistic form of athleticism. She found that and more in Nia and has spent the last two years growing into herself as a dancer. When not in the studio, she loves the outdoors and considers thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail her greatest accomplishment to date.
