With a background in dance and an endless supply of energy, Liz is a great point person for anything fitness and movement. Whether it’s yoga or fun choreography, she’s a mover and a shaker. Check out her Power Vinyasa classes at Opal Yoga and Hot Yoga!

Describe what you do in town (whether it be your job or local interest/involvement in Cville).

New to Charlottesville, a dancer, choreographer, and teacher of movement, including dance, yoga and Pilates. I am currently choreographing a Flash Mob dance performance for the Tom Tom Founders Festival in April, which includes a mix of Cville locals and UVA students.

Currently working on… a FLASH MOB!
