Michelle Chaviano has been a Professional Ballerina for five years. She began her classical ballet training at the age of nine at The Art of Classical Ballet under the directorship of Magaly Suarez. At the age of 16, Michelle moved to complete her dance training at English National Ballet School in London, England. After completing her professional dance training and receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Dance, she joined Teatru De Balet De Sibiu in Romania. Shortly after, she sustained a fracture to her spine and returned to the United States.
Her respect and admiration for the GYROTONIC Method developed when she rehabilitated her spine. It was through the GYROTONIC Method that she was able to heal her spinal injury and continue her dance career. She started her GYROTONIC career at Body Kinetics of Florida with April and Pamela Mortemore. She also had the pleasure of training with teachers Angela Crowley and Yannis Brunet of GYROTONIC Coral Gables as well as Mari Kasich of Miami Beach GYROTONIC.
She decided to complete the Gyrotonic teacher training after realizing the great benefits that come from this specific and unique movement system. This motivated her to attend GYROTONIC Pre training with Elissa Van Poznak. Her GYROTONIC Foundation training was completed with Miriam Barbosa. Michelle currently awaits certification October 2017.
