Jillian, born and raised in Long Island, has been pursuing her dreams in the Big City since she moved to NYC at the onset of her college career. Dance has been a prominent fixture in her life from a young age, having studied Ballet, Flamenco, and other traditional Latin dances. While in the city she discovered her love for Exotic Dance, and is excited to share the confidence, strength, motivation, and most importantly fun that she's found through it with as many people as possible. AFAA certified.
JILLIAN ON STRIPXPERTEASE CLASSES
When I discovered StripXpertease I was in the process of digging myself out of a HUGE rut mentally, emotionally, and physically. I was looking for a fun and sexy fitness class, but what I found was better than I could've imagined. All it took was one class and I never looked back! I fell head over stripper heels and was in class more than my own apartment. The classes at StripXpertease are special for two main reasons, the style of dance and the women who participate in them. Exotic dance, as taught at SXT, celebrates women's bodies, sensuality, and the natural power of the confidence that we all have within. You feel sexy because of the movement, the shoes, and the music, but you feel awesome and empowered because you're able to progress and learn with other women who encourage you. Kimberly and the other instructors work hard to teach and create the hottest moves, most challenging/rewarding workouts, and ridiculously fun events, but they also really put a lot of care and attention into making sure that their students progress at their own levels and have a great time. Having taken dance and fitness classes in New York, New Jersey, and Long Island I can say that treatment like that is not always a given. StripXpertease has helped me in my journey to achieve a level of confidence and self assurance that I previously thought was impossible, and to own and reclaim my sexuality for myself. Everyone can find something different for themselves at StripXpertease, but everyone will definitely find a great time. See you in class!
JILLIAN ON DANCING
Whether dancing in front of my mirror, in a class, or as a member of a dance company I love dance! Since the beginning of time dancing has been a means for people to celebrate, express themselves, and share stories and emotions in a completely nonverbal manner. The concept of that alone is amazing to me. Dance brings people together from all walks of life all over the world. But what I love most about dance is that at the same time it can be completely individual and unique to one person. This is especially true of Exotic Dance. Whether performed for someone or not, every bit of movement is completely your own. Dance lets you be free to express how you feel, or who you are, but allows you the control of showcasing it however you want to. In our hectic lives sometimes shaking your thang in the mirror at home, or at a dance class, is one of the few moments you get to do exactly what you want to do, exactly how you want to do it. Dance is a beautiful thing, and one of the aspects of my life that makes me the happiest.
