Veronique meets you where you are in your body. Her use of analogies in her cueing encourage you to explore the movements in your own body and have fun while doing it. She challenges you as well as supports you at the same time making sure you have all of the tools you need to move safely.
Veronique Breen is originally from Brussels, Belgium. She studied and danced professionally in Europe for over 20 years, including the Royal Ballet of Flanders and Het National Ballet of Amsterdam. Her dance career included soloist roles in ballets from choreographers such as Martha Graham, Balanchine, William Forsythe, Caroline Carlson, and many more.
Following her professional ballet career, Veronique expanded upon her knowledge of movement by completing sports massage therapy training in Amsterdam. At this same time, she began teaching dance and movement techniques to your students and adults, including pre-professional and professional dancers, active adults, and physically and mentally challenged adolescents.
Shortly after moving to the United States in 2003, Veronique began her training in the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods. Relatively new exercise techniques to most Americans, these methodologies incorporate principals of movement she mastered during her dance career, as well as physiology and injury prevention principals she learned through massage therapy training. She opened he own studio in 2005 and six years later became a Certified Gyrotonic Master Trainer and Gyrokinesis Pre-Trainer.
