Move. Dance. Pilates. GO! Sometimes, not so simple. Here is some explaining on my end, including my new vision, and movement for every day.
MDP is the collaboration of Maya's passions and experiences through her professional dance career and long study of Pilates. She encourages MOVEMENT first and teaches the basis and foundation of moves with a more playful way of being curious and further branching deeper into physical, and mental well being. Find yourself in any entity with freedom, courage, and success. Move. Dance or do Pilates. Experience a session for yourself OR your child today.
Maya began Dance at a young age in Chicago, and performed professionally starting at age 11 with ballet, modern, jazz and opera companies nationwide and in Mexico.
Her classical ballet training is extensive and she is experienced in modern, jazz, latin, mime, tap, improvisation and partnering. She was an ARTS awardee as a senior in high school, and scholarship trainee with the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. She is a scholarship recipient and has a B.S. in Ballet/Performance and Broadcast Journalism from Indiana University, learning George Balanchine ballets through the infamous Patricia McBride. Maya has been teaching dance of all ages and choreographing for over 25 years, including a 12 year span with the Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular, as a dancer and assistant choreographer. Her last two seasons of Rockettes included pregnancy and 1 year old twins on tour...and yes-it really does take a village. And 12 shipped Fed Ex boxes, in case you were curious.
PILATES is a system of movement that was developed by German born Joseph Pilates in the 1920's. The use of springs and the exercises allow the body to utilize smaller muscles to find alignment, balance, coordination, tone, stretch, strength and overall uniform development of the body, mind and spirit.
Maya is a certified Pilates instructor through The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO (2006), and Kathy Grant Heritage Training (2014).
Maya began Pilates in her Tweens through her ballet coach, who was training under the reknown Romana Kryzanowska. Pilates presented itself for years during her dance career, and soon after a car accident, she took on this system of movement as rehabilitation and continued to train and certify as an instructor. Maya was a 3rd place finalist in the world wide Pilates Anytime NEXT instructor competition (2015). She has taught Pilates throughout the Denver area, as a warm up for the Radio City Rockettes and most recently taught Pilates academic courses at Metro State University. Maya has implemented Pilates for Kids in the Denver Public School system and continues to feel passionate about this field and the potential it has on people of all levels, ages, types and needs.
