ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Kelly Sawyna is a classically trained dancer from the outskirts of Philadelphia. She studied under prestigious organizations such as the Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, the Boston Ballet, and the Central PA Youth Ballet. Additionally, she was a finalist in the Youth America Grand Prix, and a first-place division winner of the Toulsa International Dance Competition in France. Kelly’s academics lead her slightly astray from the dance world when she decided to study architecture at the University of Miami. It was during her time in Miami that she developed her love of fitness. Able to combine two of her passions, Kelly started teaching the Boss Chick Dance Workout in 2015. She loves sharing its infectious combination of dance, fitness, and sassy attitude with others. Outside of Boss Chick, Kelly is an architect specializing in healthcare design and project management.
