A former company member of prestigious dance companies such as Oakland Ballet and Winifred R. Harris’s Between Lines, Kendra was prescribed Pilates in 1990 as post-ankle surgery rehabilitation. She was blessed to have an incredible mentor, Elizabeth Larkham as her first instructor. Under the guiding hand of Marie-Jose Blom, Kendra trained at Long Beach Dance Conditioning in California and has owned and operated her own Pilates studio since 1997. In addition to one-on-one Pilates training at her home studio, Kendra teaches both Pilates and dance locally.
A guest member of the Dance Faculty at Concord Academy, Kendra also teaches Pilates mat classes for their faculty and staff.
She has worked as a dance instructor for Dance In Schools and Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre, and has choreographed dance for a wide range of clients spanning from Savoyard Light Opera Company to Walt Disney Feature Animation.
Kendra's teaching style echoes her dance background - flowing and elegant. She has an excellent eye for balance and form and uses concise, expressive imagery to help each client attain their own personal goals.
