Andrea studied ballet, tap, and jazz classes as a child. After having two kids she was over fifty pounds overweight and struggled to find a fitness routine that would fit her lifestyle and that she would enjoy. She found Red Hot Dance Fitness class and was hooked from the first class. After losing her unwanted baby weight she took the leap from participant to instructor and completed the Red Hot Dance Fitness instructor training.  She loves teaching dances learned through the online library for instructors but also creating her own choreography. Her future plans are to add Pound and Barre to her teaching repertoire. Outside of the studio, she enjoys time with her husband and two children, time with friends, playing the piano, and performs with her local community theater.
