About Portia

I am a trained actor and dancer with a passion for helping people reach their strongest and healthiest potential. I am currently a master instructor at a barre studio with locations in Williamsburg, Dumbo and Harlem, where I co-lead teacher trainings and have helped create class formats. My classes are known for their intensity and challenge but are always fun. I specialize in workouts and training that is:

- low-impact but high-intensity

- core-centric

- modified for knee/hip and joint injuries

- posture-focused

- incorporate barre technique

Looking forward to working with you and helping you build your strongest and healthiest self.
