Thanks so much, Ilyse!  I never thought I’d have that much fun at a dance class.  Seriously, I think I may actually give one at my gym at shot now.  I can’t thank you enough for the confidence boost to give it a go.  Xoxo

Ilyse is a person who walks or rather dances her walk, and talks her talk. UBER talented without a shred of ego or drama, Ilyse Baker is a force of nature and talent. This is a gal who, whether in front of 1 or 1,000, gives you her heart, soul and 150% of herself. She leaves it ALL on the dance floor. It is my honor to work with Ilyse often and I have immense gratitude for also being able to call her a friend.
