Polly has her Bachelor and Master’s of Fine Arts in Ballet Performance, Teaching and Choreography from the University of Utah. She danced professionally with various ballet companies and musicals for 10 years before finishing her performing career with Disneyland. Polly transitioned into teaching and has taught all levels, styles and ages of dancers for the past 20 years- including opening her own studio, Contemporary Dance Academy, in Fort Collins, CO, and serving as adjunct faculty in the dance department at Butler University. Polly was first introduced to the reformer in college and has always incorporated mat Pilates in her wellness routine. A major foot injury, surgery and recovery inspired her to take the next step and enroll in the CP Teacher Training Program. Polly looks forward to continuing her Pilates journey with all of you in Dayton. When she is not in the ballet or Pilates studio, Polly loves exploring and traveling with her husband and 2 kids.
