Renee is a life-long enthusiast of all things movement. Training for the past 11 years under the tutelage of ballroom professionals such as Viorel Ionita and Benoit Papineua (who himself is a regular guest coach at Moveir), Renee officially joined the Moveir staff in 2016 and offers private lessons in the ballroom dances.
In addition to ballroom dance, Renee counts formal training in physical theater, ballet, and jazz, and performances in mime and liturgical dance productions among her credentials. She also holds a degree in Nursing.
An avid advocate of social dancing as a healthy community-focused activity, Renee emphasizes good technique as the means to achieving graceful and enjoyable partner-dancing. When she’s not social dancing herself, Renee enjoys yoga and spending time with her adult daughters and new granddaughter.
