Breanna Flores’ love for dance started at the young age of 2. By age 3, she was enrolled in dance classes. She committed most of her childhood- young adult life to performing with Tacoma Performing Dance Company under the Direction of Jo Emery, taking classes, master classes with well know dance companies, and started choreography dances for TPDC. She performed in the Nutcracker for 18 years taking on various roles including the lead roles of Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy. She went on to compete in Ballroom Competitions dancing the Argentine Tango and then danced with Danny Vernon/ an Elvis Impersonator for 2 years.
After finishing her associates degree at Tacoma Community College at the age of 21, she followed her dream and opened her own dance studio; Studio Moves – The Movement Studio offering ballet, jazz, lyrical, and fitness to ages 3 and up. Studio Moves is still going strong!
Her love and passion for fitness began at a difficult time in her life at the young age of 21. After years of suffering from an eating disorder she joined a gym in hopes it could help her heal her body and mind. During that time she not only healed her relationship with body image and food-She also met her husband at that very gym. Fitness became apart of her every day life and she knew that she wanted to share her passion for fitness with others.
In 2006, she joined a women’s only gym and immediately connected with the community there. She started working the front desk and taught a small “Abs” class. A few years later she fell in love with Barre and started teaching Barre Classes and a Pilates Stretch Class. She remained dedicated to that community for 15 years until they recently closed. In July 2021 she joined the Fitness Quest for Woman Community and will be teaching Barre and Circuit Classes.
With over 37 years of dance experience, 19 years of owning a dance studio, and 10+ years of teaching group fitness classes – Breanna has dedicated her life to health , fitness , and dance. Her mission is to share not only her passion for movement with others, but also share the importance of positive body image.
