June was raised in Hicksville, Long Island and lived there until her late 20’s. She started studying dance at the tender age of 4. She was a very pidgeon-toed little girl and a doctor recommended to her mom that she study ballet in order to help her hips “turn out” more. This began her lifelong journey in dance. She studied all forms of dance (ballet, tap, jazz, and later on, Hip-Hop), throughout her life. In 1987, She began teaching dance at the age of 19 at Lil’s Dancing School, located in Hicksville, NY. She minored in dance classes at Hofstra University . In 1995, she relocated to Manhattan and studied with many renowned NYC teachers, such as Alan Onickel, Michael Owens, Marybeth Griffith, and Arlene Erb. After starting her family in 1998, she quickly realized that she needed to strengthen and support her aging dancer’s body and began taking Pilates in Manhattan. Realizing how the two forms complemented one another, she quickly became a Pilates devotee and has been fervently studying it ever since.

After 10 years in Manhattan, she relocated once again – this time to Westchester County, NY. In 2007, she received her Pilates education and certification through Power Pilates and became fully certified with over 600 hours of training in all exercises, both on the mat as well as on the machines.

In 2008, she took over her dance studio where she had been teaching for over 23 years. Realizing the benefits that Pilates had given her, she felt that it would be great to combine both Dance and Pilates Education under one roof. The Studio - Dance and Pilates was born. Fulfilling her lifelong dream of owning a dance studio and adding Pilates to it had finally become a reality.

A mother of four and the owner of the studio, June is extremely devoted to teaching both young and old dance and/or Pilates. She feels extremely fortunate to be able to make her living doing what she is most passionate about. She truly believes that “Movement Heals”.
