Aside from dance, MissG is certified to teach Vinyasa Yoga and specializes in children's yoga and yoga for beginners.

She is also a certified Reiki Healer and offers therapeutic relaxation sessions in person or online for busy professionals and anyone else who enjoys therapeutic relaxation.

MissG has 17 years of teaching experience, and she was born and raised in New York City. She has received training in NYC's prestigious Broadway Dance Center, Steps, and many other dance schools throughout the country. In 2004, she founded Alight Movement while residing in Florida. Alight Movement is a wellness hub focused on helping people with little to no previous experience incorporate either dance, yoga, and/or reiki into their wellness regimen. Alight Movement is also involved in the global dance community, offering training, opportunities and wellness coaching for dancers in the urban/street-style community. Alight Movement has already made a mark within the street dance community by hosting and producing events, dance competitions, shows, and workshop tours.

MissG has choreographed and performed as a backup dancer for various artists and venues, including television shows and music videos. She has trained artists in development for major recording companies and continues to inspire her students, from all walks of life, to aim high in their endeavors. One of MissG’s students, artist Joselyn Rivera, appeared on the third season of The Voice.

MissG has expanded her teachings and methodology to other areas beyond dance. Her comprehension of effective body and wellness teaching techniques has allowed her to reach a wide variety of clientele. Although she teaches all levels and all ages of dance and yoga, she specializes in beginner level students who wish to integrate movement into their wellness regimens.

The best teacher ever!!! Super kind, engaging, patient! She adapts to any of your goals/teaching style! I love coming to class; I always leave with a smile no matter how I felt before :)

I started off doing hip hop with MissG, then we started doing more yoga and meditation which has been so fulfilling!

Our Grandson Caleb had his first Hip Hop lesson with Miss G last week. I highly recommend Miss G. She makes learning fun and interesting. She keeps things lite and low key and is able to keep Caleb focused. Miss G interacts with children exceptionally well. Caleb can't wait for his second lesson!!

MissG is awesome and highly recommend her. She is instructing my daughter and I for her sweet 16 father/daughter dance. She gave us great ideas for moves and great instruction on how to count and move to the music. I was worried about this dance coming together and definitely could not done it without her! We are set to do this dance in another 2 weeks and now feel confident about doing this.

My husband and went to Miss G because we were looking for someone to choreograph our first dance together at our wedding. We wanted something different and upbeat, and Miss G choreographed the perfect dance for us! She is a wonderful teacher, she's very patient (we never took dance lessons before and she walked us through every step!), and we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend her! We have no regrets getting lessons from Miss G. She made it so fun!
